Been privileged to travel to Sabi Sabi a few times however this time we were lucky enough to be able to experience the brand new 2 bedroom family Villas. These rooms are fantastic for families looking to travel to Sabi Sabi. The Villas are beautifully decorated and have their own private plunge pool. The Villas consist of 2 separate rooms... More

Having stayed at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge earlier this year we wanted our children (ages 7 and 9) to have the same experience. All I can say is WOW. The whole family absolutely loved our 2 night stay - the lodge is beautiful, our room was huge and tastefully decorated with every amenity (the glass shower wall onto the bush... More

The Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge was the first stop on our South African adventure - it was also where we celebrated my son's 21st birthday. It was our first safari experience - and it was truly awesome. We saw 4 of the Big 5 - missed the lion, but certainly it wasn't for the lack of trying. For my son's... More

We had the best time at the Sabi Sabi Bush lodge! The accommodations were outstanding, the staff warm and helpful and the Safaris were awesome! They thought of everything for our comfort including hot water bottles to keep warm in the chilly early mornings!

I was a little concern about the prices, but, once there, I realized how worth it was... It was magic. The staff was amazing, the location breath taking. The excellence of service was par to no other.

We visited the lodge in Jul 2015 with our two daughters aged 10 and 12. We all lived our stay. We have been to a few game lodges before but this is the first lodge where the balance was right. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, although almost too large. I was worried the furnishing would be "tired" as... More

We had quite a long drive from our lodge to get here and the game drive was disappointing. We had had a great drive the day before in the main Kruger park. Relatively speaking there was little to see here and we did not feel it was value for money. The guides were knowledgeable but we seem to drive for... More

This was our lodging for the 3 day safari in Kruger. The lodge was awesome, it's actually one of my fondest travel memories. I loved how at night you can just sit out by the river, watch the animals, and the stars. It's so peaceful! The safari itself is amazing. Although the most days I would recommend for a safari...
