I have been fortunate enough to stay here twice and both times have been amazing. The rooms bend into the landscape effortlessly. Every detail has been well thought out, from the building materials to the vanity and counter tops. The staff is second to none, and I mean anywhere in the world and any resort. The dining is fantastic, I... More

I'll keep this short; everything exceeded my expectations, especially the service. I would return in a heartbeat. I love this place, and the people. The only small problem was the spa, which was inconsistent. other guests had great treatments. One of mine was average, the other poor.

We have loved it here. We saw all the Big Five and then some!!!The guides (Sid and Patrick) were amazing, Simon took care of all our food needs and the staff have been lovely. And the rooms are off the hook comfortable and spacious and earthy. The bathtub is a treat to not be missed either. But the best was... More

When I asked my travel agent if this place was really worth it, she stared me down and said "you must go." And I'm so glad we did. We arrived after a long drive, a bit weary and were warmly welcomed by Luke, the assistant manager who did a great job of getting us settled. Marsha introduced herself at lunch... More

This is a luxurious lodge, blended into nature, animals roam freely. Fabulous staff 13 suites built into earth, camouflaged into the Savannah. Our ranger Lazarus was so knowledgeable and personable. We saw more animals than we ever could have imagined. Lazarus uses animal print tracking to find location of animals. Not only did we see the big 5, but we... More

Jacqui & I live on the Chobe River in Botswana in big game country so it may sound odd to make a safari the destination for our 21st wedding anniversary. We love the bush and what it has to offer so when the chance of visiting Sabi Sabi Earth lodge came up we jumped at the chance. We were spoiled... More

Wonderful facilities of great comfort. Beautiful surroundings, amazing wood furniture made from wood on-site. There were beautiful mud walls and extremely comfortable lodging. Our tracker and guide Joseph and Richard were exceptional. Our last night there, we finally saw our much-anticipated leopard who was asleep with a fat belly about 25 feet above us in a tree when the battery... More

My husband and I stayed at the Earth Lodge for four days. It is not exaggerated for us to say that it was probably one of the best experiences we've ever had. Not only did we see all of the Big 5 and many in their nocturnal habitat. On day 1, a leopard dragged its kill to our outside shower... More

Earth Lodge is the place dreams are made of. From our initial greeting to our (very sad!) departure, the team at Earth Lodge made sure our entire stay was impeccable and exceeded all expectations. We absolutely loved the staff. Our ranger Tayla was friendly, knowledgable, and made our safari experience even better than we could have imagined. We saw so... More
