I had the pleasure of staying at the Earth Lodge this fall - it was fabulous. The service was incredible, the accommodations were luxurious and the access to animals first rate. As a solo traveler, I always felt safe it was easy to meet and interact with others. It really was a great trip. I hope to be able to...

The photos do not do Earth Lodge justice! The feeling is peaceful and luxurious. The staff is warm, welcoming and yet efficient. Each suite is an oasis of harmony with its surroundings and every detail well thought out....(bug spray, sunscreen, binoculars, etc). Ranger Ryan and tracker Louie were outstanding and made the trip for us! What fun and yet so...

I guess most people who come here come, like us, for a combination of pampering and safari. First the safari: Our ranger and tracker were tremendously professional and pleasant, and yes - they found us the Big 5! - though you should probably know that being ready for the morning drive is like being in boot camp. Afternoon tea before...

The hut was amazing, everything was included. Simply a fantastic place to visit. The animals walked all the way up to our hut allowing us to view them at 20 meters distance. The food is quite good. The only thing that could need some improvement is keeping track of which table orders what. This was an actual problem for us...

The moment you walk into Earth Lodge you know this place is special; but just how special is hard to describe. The architecture is inspiring.

We visited the lodge as part of an escorted tour through South Africa and Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge was definitely the highlight of our trip - While we were there we went on two safaris and these were well beyond our expectations - The Rangers attached to the lodge were highly experienced and totally dedicated to their job -Thanks to...

My wife and I spent three nights at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge earlier this month. We were simply blown away by the experience, which was first class in every way.

Sabi Sabi was simply amazing. Celebrated a special birthday here and it was beyond magnificent. We were lucky to have Lazarus and Patrick on our drives. Both were brilliant. Food was amazing, the spa treatment was divine and relaxing that I actually felt asleep! The community visit I highly recommend. Very special. Thank you for a wonderful memorable time.
