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

Large wonderful rooms with sitting areas and large bathrooms, thye are individaul villas. The guides were excellent, saw every type of animal. The safari's were really fabulous and the food great. You can just relax by the pool between safaris and the large watering hole in front of the lodge lets you view the animals without leaving your chair. Even... 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. The buffet during the day has many choices. High tea has a large assortment of appetizers/sweets. You can eat healthy here or indulge. The wait staff is kind... More

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge was great. The rooms are huge and nicely decorated. Back door tiny patio you can sit on while Baboons are playing in the bush! The main dining area and sitting area looked out on a watering hole and watching massive herds of elephants, and baboons coming in for their afternoon drink was amazing. It was incredible.... More

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge was absolutely spectacular and I would highly recommend visiting to anyone. The family was incredibly well taken care of by the whole staff but in particular Mike, Zulu, and Petunia. The game drives were second to none and although we were extremely lucky to experience so many different animals I felt we were put in this... More

Our bush experience was way beyond our expectations. The whole setting, facilities and food were great. However, our Ranger Courtney and tracker Vorster were truly special.Courtney's knowledge of the bush was delivered with enthusiasm and passion. It was not just about the animals but included the trees, birds, insects ants etc. A truly Holistic experience. We came back enriched and... More

The time we spent here were just out of this world. Firstly the Lodge and staff were wonderful and went out of their way to make our stay first class. More importantly the animals in their natural state, without fences or being feed were out of this world. We were exposed to animals so close as to have them next... More

Very poor experience. Quality of lodge is very good however the game viewing was extremely poor. On 3 game drives we saw one leopard and a scattered bunch of impalas and a rhino. The gaming was so poor that we stayed in the lodge for the 4th safari before heading home. All in all very poor value for money
