My brother and I stayed at this lodge in June 2013. On pick-up at private air strip we were informed that we had been up-graded. To our surprise we were transported to Earth Lodge and each given private suites as opposed to the shared suite/rooms we had become accustomed to on our trip. Service, facilities and game drives were absolutely... More

My wife and I travelled from Ireland and spent 4 days (3 nights), in the Amber Suite, earlier this month. Everything we experienced, from when we were collected at the airstrip by our guide, to being delivered back there at the end of our stay, was a top notch experience! All of the staff were most welcoming and very attentive... More

We went here in October last year... Still feel quilty we never did a tripadvisor review. British Airways messed up our connection from London, which cost us a day of relaxation in J'burg before traveling on to Sabi Sabi. But where one organization "excelled" in messing things up, Sabi Sabi truly excelled! From the moment we arrived, til we left,... More

As close to a six star as you can get. From an environmental yet pampered luxury lodge in the bushveld; all you could wish for. Service, accomodations, food and a philosphy of preserving the definition of Safari is top shelf

Going on safari is always a lifetime event! So why not enjoy a property that makes you feel like royalty at the same time? My sister and I stayed here in July 2014. Sadly our agent only booked us for 2 nights. I could have moved in forever and would have lived in paradise. Paradise on game drives and paradise... More

Everything was amazing! The rooms, the design, the service and even the food. Save one night for the special dinner made by them. Try to get one room closer to the lobby. All the money spent worth it! It's not only one travel, but one experience for good.

No words can describe what an amazing place, people, animals and experience this was. The resort itself is spectacular and very sympathetic to its surrounds. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful. We were met at the airstrip by our guide, Justin, and driven to the resort where we were welcomed with a refreshing smoothly and plenty of smiles....

No photos or videos can ever do this magnificent place justice. We arrived at the new Skakuza airport, and whilst it was still undergoing works, you can tell that it will look amazing when completed. Unfortunately there was a mix up with reservations in Jo'berg and the front desk at the Earth Lodge so there was no-one waiting to pick... More

Blends nature with a modern concept.The Lodge is completely breathtaking! Amazing staff, perfect food,it is just perfect! Suites with outside pool are gorgeous! Half ostrich shell bathtub was a nature/sophistication touch. When you wake-up with an elephant in front of your window you say:"life is perfect"! This place doesn't exist. We had the most amazing massage ever!
