The accommodations at the Earth Lodge were like nothing I've ever experienced---and I am a luxury design addict! I can't express how exquisite and thoughtful the décor was and then put it in the setting of the most famous National Parks in Africa and you get a dream vacation. We saw the big five in just two days and this wasn't luck. Sabi Sabi's expert guides and trackers work their darnedest to find any animals you may have missed in earlier days. On our last morning our guide Mike was determined to get us a leopard sighting and we got it tenfold. We came across the most dramatic scene of a leopard eating a kudu in a tree with hyenas anxiously waiting below...it may have been one of the most exciting things I've ever witnessed in nature. If you get to take one safari in South Africa in your life, this is it.
