We arrived at a couple of large termite mounds and parked the car, wondering if this could truly be our destination but hidden between the mounds was a paved tunnel which led us into one of the most beautiful places on our planet. The lodge is lined with earth - hence the name: 'Earth Lodge'. Most of the furniture has... More

what an awesome time we had at Earth Lodge! Of course I was also lucky and honoured to have Mike as ranger and Patrick as tracker.....who made it possible to see "The big 5" within 3 days! In fact, one feels so exceptionally welcome and extremely at home with each and everyone of you at Earth Lodge. You really are... More

Probably the best game lodge I ever stayed. Even the experience of staying in the bush at night waiting for our crew that was helping other fellows that got stuck in the mud off track was a really quite an experience. Team spirit at his best. Thanks Dave for making it possible to see at least 4 of 5 with... More

We spent 3 nights at Sabi Sabi between Christmas and New Year and had a fantastic time. Our Suite was perfect and the decor stunning. Joe was our Ranger ( Kenny our Tracker) and he was very experienced and had a great sense of humour. They helped us find the Big 5 in 2 days, even the elusive Leopard which... More

The service from the staff was wonderful they could not do enough and the lodge itself was beautiful giving privacy to in beautifully appointed rooms. The game was fantastic, Dave our Ranger was superb and passed on his in... More

I traveled to So. Africa with my brother, we had the most amazing time... Sabi Sabi was the best of everything... the safari, food, and service were outstanding. Richard was our guide, Goodman our tracker, they were the best! Highly Recommended. Planning to return someday.

My dad and I had the pleasure of staying at Sabi Sabi's earth lodge recently when we were traveling with a group. Every member of our group stopped in the room and then came back to the core lodge to share a cocktail before dinner and the words were all the same: "Can you believe the room?" Its frankly stunning... More

We were just delighted with the Earth Lodge. The decor is really stunning, managing to be modern but incorporate so many local elements at the same time. The food was outstanding, and the service was excellent. We stayed for three nights and on each of our six game drives (one early morning, one in the afternoon), our ranger Michell and... More

We stayed at Bush Lodge for a few nights and then here. They are both great places to stay, just different. Again, a wonderful setting, we kept our Ranger, Calvin, when we transferred lodges and he was great! The staff were friendly, helpful and went out of their way to introduce themselves to us.

So they don't really match my taste in design, and I prefer the more "traditional" looking luxury lodge when I am on safari, but the service and staff at Earth Lodge make this one of the premier destinations in Sabi Sands. They go above and beyond in making your stay a memorable one - dinner in the wine cellar, a... More
