Sabi Sands Game Reserve Safaris
The Sabi Sands Game Reserve is a private game reserve situated in the south western corner of the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Steeped in safari history, the Sabi Sands Game Reserve is the oldest and most famous of all private reserves in South Africa. Covering some 65 000 hectares of untamed African bush, the Sabi Sands Game Reserve shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park. The Sabi Sands Game Reserve has an extensive and varied landscape of fauna and flora, perennial water and extensive wildlife. The result is arguably the best wildlife viewing tract of land in Southern Africa.
Enjoying an exceptionally high concentration and diversity of wildlife, the Sabi Sands is home to the famed Big-5 (elephant, leopard, buffalo, rhino and lion) as well as other animals such as impala, waterbuck, grey duiker, greater kudu, bushbuck, nyala, giraffe, warthog, crocodile and hippo. The Sabi Sands Game Reserve is famed for excellent big cat viewing (especially leopards) and is also a birdwatcher's paradise with over 300 species of bird, including numerous summer migrant birds.
As the Sabi Sands enjoys the benefits of being a private game reserve and was the first reserve to introduce the concept of private lodges, the quality of camps and lodges in the Sabi Sands is outstanding.
Guests should be prepared to pay a premium to visit this reserve versus other private reserves. We recommend at least two to three nights on safari in the Sabi Sands (longer durations can be combined with other reserves such as Timbavati, Thornybush or Kapama for a greatly rewarding experience).
