Amazing luxurious rooms, food, staff, surroundings and game drives. Even had decent Internet connectivity and service. The perfect combination of being in the wild combined with the feeling of an all inclusive resort.

Wildlife spotting opportunities around almost every corner. As it is a private game reserve the land rovers are allowed to leave the dirt roads and get up close to the animals.

If the elusive leopard chooses to hang in a particular spot, you know it must be special. Sabi Sands has a variety of wildlife in a relatively small area, so it's possible to see just about everything you could want in just a couple of...More

If having the best people in the industry look after you is what you are after then this is a must see "African wildlife destination" - the staff are beyond exceptional. The wildlife encounters are excellent. The accommodation is some of the best that Southern...More
