We stayed here for only one night(Selati for 2 days prior) The premises are gorgeous, one is treated like royalty, and the staff is eager to please. The vibe is quite similar to an Arizona resort which is always great. delicious meals, enjoyable game rides. We treated ourselves to a massage. I don't recall ever having had a better treatment...

My family and I will never find a better way to disconnect fully and appreciate the pleasure of being taken into a daily adventure with all the comfort you could think of. 2 private games per day, amazing service, private pool in the suites, animals getting close to your suites at different times of the day, fantastic breakfasts and some...

It's unusual for me to write a review, but I felt compelled after an exceptional experience at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge. We enjoyed 3 days at the property and can say that the staff did an outstanding job anticipating our needs and wants. But it was way beyond the staff's control of the density and quality of the animal viewing.... More

This Lodge is very uniquely designed and just an amazing property. It is truly luxury in the bush. The rooms are earthly, plush, comfortable and private. We had our own private pool and patio and could watch the animals right from there. The guides and tracker, Mike and Patrick were very good and we really enjoyed spending time with them.... More

From the moment we stepped out of the vehicle and were welcomed by the manager and two staff members bearing hot towels and cold drinks we experienced superb service in a stunningly beautiful setting. Rooms are extremely spacious, tasteful and well equipped. Each suite opens onto its own private plunge pool and lawn area. Game drives were offered early morning... More

Earth Lodge will not disappoint. The staff was always pleasant and willing to accommodate our every need. The lodge manager, Nadia, went above and beyond to provide a flawless experience. Knowledgable safari guides who have guest first mentality. The natural hotel and surrounding are gorgeous. A huge recommend!

I hate to gush...This place is divine in every way! It is exquisitely appointed. When I walked into the lobby it felt as if I had been transported to a spread in Travel & Leisure. The 5 course nightly meals were sumptuous and served beautifully. Our ranger, Joe, and tracker, Richard, were experts and a lot of fun on the... More

If visiting Sabi Sabi, opt to fly directly into the the airstrip which is a mere 5 minute drive from the lodge. Otherwise you will have to fly into Nelspruit (90 min drive) or elsewhere. Nadia, Stephan, Mike, Richard, George and everyone at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge were fantastic. It is such a warm and inviting lodge nestled within the... More
