What I liked most (consider that everything is at the top, this is a unique place to stay) - location: in the middle of nowhere - rooms: huge, local design, luxory - staff: nice, welcoming and smiling - games: guides are prepared and nice - lodge: nice and relaxing What I didn't like (things you don't expect in super-luxory accomodations):...

Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge is one of the best resorts we have ever had the pleasure of visiting. We made our first trip here a year ago and decided as soon as we left that a second trip was a necessity. I must say, the second time was even better! The entire staff from managers, Stephan, Nadia and Shaun, to... More

Sabi Sabi is amazing for viewing animals etc. Earth Lodge is incredibly nice. Staff were super friendly. Service, food, and everything else here was the best we have experienced. Would love to stay there again. It was well worth the price.

Our stay at Sabi Sabi #EarthLodge was really great. From management to general staff nothing was too much of an effort. Their friendliness and care is an asset to a company that is already world renowned. Our ranger and tracker make a great team which adds value to making for great viewing experience. The meals were also always well presented... More

Spent 2 days here .I still think it was a dream .From the moment you arrive at the lodge --in the bush no fences to keep animals out--you are treated like royalty. Only 12 chalets built into the earth , pure luxury, with all amenities, including own plunge pool. Meals are exceptional, French cuisine prepared beautifully .Twice a day you... More

My wife and I stayed at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge for four nights as part of our honeymoon and found it well worth the expense. Our ranger and guide, Terry and Richard, were always willing to go the extra mile to help us have the best safaris imaginable. We saw the Big 5 every full day we were there, and... More

The particular time I stayed was just after a major wildfire, so game viewing wasn't as good as it would otherwise have been. Our guide Richard assuredly did his best, nonetheless, and the drives were still quite interesting. The facilities, though... Oh my! Honestly, I would return here for everything else in the middle of a raging inferno for the... More

Well appointed guest suites with own plunge pools allows for relaxing in private when not on a game drive. Gave viewing as good as it gets. Besides the "normal" big five in 2 days we were fortunate to have unusual sightings of wild dog and a black rhino at close quarters both "most endangered" species. Very friendly/helpful staff for who... More

Earth lodge is a amazing to stay, worth the value.The drives we had were exclusive as well with an expectation all weather to support it.

From the moment we touched down on the private runway, until our departure three days later, every moment was unique. The staff were exceptional. Safaris morning and night were not to be missed. Never forget the thrill of tracking the 'big five' off track, which can only be done outside of the national parks. Up close lions, impalas, giraffes and... More
