First I was terrified all those lions passing right just beside us and looking directly in your eyes! the jeep was all open so we almost could touch the big 5. But inside the vehicule we represented no danger to the especies so I feel just at home with my guide and all went fantastic. I did the 3 safaris... More

The trip is pricy but worth it as you really get to enjoy and observe the wonders of nature in the most comfortable and luxurious setting. This was the first time I saw the night sky clearly and was quite fascinated and we were able to spot a leopard twice. The hotel was very comfortable with food being available all... More

Having stayed in quite a couple of bush lodges and resorts, we must give this one our top badge of excellence! First the location and the view over the waterhole from the deck, where every morning and evening we saw different animals: hyena, elephant, baboons, impala, .... Second out fantastic ranger /tracker team Franscois and Zulu who were on top... More

As a travel agent I have traveled extensively and stayed at hundreds of hotels across the globe. This was definitely a favourite. Excellent service, well appointed rooms that are uniquely African. The food was the best I've ever experienced at a 5 star property, using local produce and very fresh. You will never go hungry. The highlight was our ranger... More

Sabi Sabi is amazing ! On safari we saw all the wildlife -lions, cheetah, leopard, elephants- Including twin babies, giraffe, rhinos - our guide and tracker were hilarious and made the overall experience. I would recommend this place to anyone - couples, single travelers and families. I cant wait to come back with my kids !

Our cottage was beautiful, the food was fantastic and the safari was one of the best things I have ever done. The guides were excellent. This is the place to stay. You are really in the heart of wildlife here.

I've done a lot of travelling, but nothing even comes close to this place! The safari's were incredible. The Ranger's knowledge of everything safari related was extremely impressive. Then there's the suites. Jaw dropping beauty! They are massive and very well done. This place exceeded our already high expectations by far! This is one of the most wonderful places in... More

Going to a safari in a game lodge was a thirty year old dream that became a reality last May. For this reason, I decided to go the distance by booking into a top quality lodge such as the Sabi Sabi Bush lodge and I was glad I did so. I stayed three nights, the service, the food and the... More

From the time the ranger picked us up at the airport until he returned us four days later, we were in awe. The accommodations were large, spacious and were accommodated. The bed and pillows very comfortable. The meals hot, ready and delicious. The staff very helpful and friendly. Our first drive was the very afternoon after we arrived. Not only... More

This is the first time for us to visit Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve and we're so glad we booked into this lodge. The lodge has very good facility, with swimming pool, spa and kids center. Although this is not our first time staying in a game lodge, Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge is probably the one offers the best service... More
