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!

wonderful stay, wonderful place. Ah, staff was extremely nice and the food was fantastic. But the most important fact is that the place is really wonderful. I've never been in a place like this one before.

I almost cannot put into words how completely perfect a stay at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge is. I was brought to tears on several occasions during our stay, just from the sheer emotion of trying to describe/explain how magnificent the experience was. (Yes, I know how extreme that sounds ... and trust me, I surprised MYSELF with my tears) The... More

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...
