The resort is gorgeous, the staff are hospitable, the food is delicious and the accommodations are comfortable. Our tracker and guide were Rhandi and Franz....

My husband and I had been at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge in 2009. At the time we had liked a lot this magical place. Since then we had decided to return one day to Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge with my son.

Gorgeous accomodations (nice rooms, elegant common spaces and good spa). Attentive service. And as it is a private game reserve, very few cars and people, allowing us to witness magical scenes and all the animals we wanted to see, making Sabi Sabi the ultimate safari experience. We'll come back.

This is not the Four Seasons of the bush. But who cares? You want to see the big 5, more specifically the elusive leopard. And if you have kids then don't bother looking any further. We have visited a few lodges in the bush with our two children (10 and 12 years old) and this was the first time they... More

Bush Lodge was cooking with regards to game viewing while we were there. The rooms are still as good as I remember and the general staff serving meals are fantastic. Pros: The game viewing, the room, cuisine and waiting team. Cons: Bearing in mind that we are regular visitors to many of the lodges in the Sabi Sands, I would... More

I think you either love Sabi Sabi or you feel like "eh." I'll start with things I loved. The food in the evening is really good with such an array of choices.
