I have stayed at most of the lodges in the Sabi Sand reserve and can state that without a doubt, nothing comes close to Sabi Sabi. Sabi Sabi, and in particular Earth Lodge, is without question the flagship lodge in the whole of the Sabi Sand. There is nothing to fault from the accommodation, food, wildlife, and to the whole...

Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge was the finest travel experience I have ever had. Everything is first class, from the service to the room to the safari guides (ask for Marcus and Louie as your guides, they are phenomenal). The food is gourmet and the service outstanding. Nadia and her team really have their act together, and staying here has become... More

Oh my goodness. This place is unbelievable. Almost completely hidden from view you have absolutely no idea what you are entering! Our suite was magnificent. Our Ranger Mike and Tracker Petro were amazing and very understanding to my phobia of snakes! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff our waiter George was wonderful! Food exceptional. This is definitely a... More

I cannot say enough about the luxury, the beauty and the professionalism of this reserve. A magical place. And my 17 year-old son was quite impressed--and he is not easy to impress. Stay here for several days while in South Africa. We also had amazing sightings: leopards, lions, zebras, a cheetah, and so much more.

Luxurious accommodations, excellent service, gourmet food, and great safari's. The rooms are suites with a private sitting area with a small pool. When we went there weren't any kids (We went in March). Guides were very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the animals we saw. I think there was wifi in the rooms (not that we used it),...

Amazed by the service from the moment the charter flight landed to being welcomed by staff and rangers, then meeting the fellow guests and having an incredible time. We managed to spot all the Big 5 on our first night there! The food is exceptional and the overall experience second to none. we had antelope drinking out of our jaccuzi... More

Stayed for 2 nights at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge - honestly one of the best bush breaks I've ever been on. The lodge has amazing decor, being elegant and luxurious but still blending in to the bush. Awesome rooms with every amenity imaginable. Each room feels like you're on your own with views of the bush. Personal plunge pool for... More

By far the bush lodge we ever visited. The common areas are beautifull. Well design with spacipus areas. Furniture compliment the gracious space. The view onto the waterhole is specacular. Visit all the days by elephants and various plains game. The rooms are extremly spacious. Your own living area, king size bed and big bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers.... More
