Luxury and Leopards

The Sabi Sands is without a doubt the very best place in the whole world to view the elusive Leopard, and if that is not enough to tempt you, the other 4 members of the Big Five are also very commonly spotted in this Game Reserve, and you stand a good chance of seeing all of them on a single game drive.  In addition, Sabi Sands have taken the concept of the Luxury Safari experience to a whole new level which has completely outclassed most of the opposition. The Sabi Sands Game Reserve incorporates some of South Africa’s best-known private Game Reserves such as Mala Mala, Londolozi, Singita and Ulasaba private game reserves and  with legendary Leopard viewing, luxury accommodation and pampering on a grand scale, Sabi Sands will please the most discerning of guests.


Have you been to Sabi Sands Game Reserve?


Leopard Stalking, the Big Five, Walking Safaris and other Highlights

Leopard Viewing

The legendary Leopard viewing at Sabi Sands is due to a few factors; there is an excellent concentration of Leopard in the Reserve, but the most important factor is that the Leopards of Sabi Sands have become very accustomed to the presence of the 4X4 game viewing vehicles, and completely ignore them!  This means that you can follow, or even stalk them in several situations, including hunting and even mating; this is something that is not possible in any other Reserve in the world.  You will have the opportunity to get within a few meters of these magnificent and elusive creatures, even when there are young cubs in the group.


Big Five Viewing 

The other four members of the Big Five are also present in large numbers and can commonly be observed from very close quarters indeed.  Because Sabi Sands is a privately owned Game Reserve, the very experienced rangers and trackers can take the game-viewing vehicles off road and right up to the animals, something that is not allowed in the Kruger National Park.  Have that camera ready to record the sightings of a lifetime!


Walking Safaris

A walking safari is probably the most thrilling way to enjoy the Reserve.  Here you can spend a few hours silently communing with Nature as you wander through the Reserve with your armed ranger, ever on the look-out for a surprise around the corner!


Sabi Sands Sleep Out

For something completely different you can arrange to sleep out under the wide and starry African skies!  But we do not mean roughing it in a sleeping bag; your sleep out experience at Sabi Sands will be in a beautiful and romantic draped four-poster bed, conveniently placed out of reach of the animals!



Safaris in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve

Leopard viewing is the main attraction at Sabi Sands and the experience is extremely well organised.  There is coordination between the various private lodges which are part of the Reserve,  which has led to considerate game viewing practices.  The animals are monitored and tracked and your experienced game rangers and trackers are experts who can be relied upon to give you the very best viewing experience available.  A great safari option is to combine a stay at more than one of the lodges, or perhaps even include one of the other private concessions that form part of the Greater Kruger National Park.  



Other Activities

Birding Safaris

The Greater Kruger Park and Sabi Sands Reserve provide a unique combination of habitats and wilderness areas that attract over 500 bird species, making this a paradise for bird watchers.  There are raptors in abundance and an excellent concentration of Cuckoos, Rollers, Hornbills and Kingfishers, among others.


Hot Air Ballooning

For a unique perspective of the African bush consider a Hot Air Ballooning trip.  You will be collected from your Lodge at dawn and enjoy a birds’ eye view of the Reserve as you drift silently over the plains.  After your expedition you will be served breakfast and bubbly; what a great way to start another wonderful day in Africa!


Rest and Relaxation

Your African Safari should include excitement and relaxation in equal measures!  The marvellous lodges in Sabi Sands all have swimming pools (often your own private plunge pool with a view out over the Reserve) where you can relax between game drives and most also offer wonderful Spa treatments.



Accommodation at Sabi Sands Game Reserve

Step into a world where your every wish and whim is anticipated and graciously executed by the friendly and attentive staff.  Enjoy unparalleled levels of service and luxury at each of the Private Lodges that are waiting to welcome you to the Sabi Sands.  Each of these ultra-luxury Lodges has a different style varying from the old Colonial style to up-to-the-minute modern luxury.  Several of the Lodges offer suites with private plunge pools and viewing terraces and all serve up amazing cuisine and matching wines.  Of course, all this luxury comes with a substantial price tag, but there are a few less expensive accommodation options just outside the Reserve.



How to Get There

The best way to reach the Lodges in the Sabi Sands Reserve is to fly in directly from Johannesburg.  You can also fly into Kruger Mpumalanga Airport from Johannesburg, Cape Town or Durban and then transfer to your Lodge by road or a short flight.



Best Time to Visit

Anytime is a good time to visit Sabi Sands.  The game viewing is so good here that you do not have to wait for the drier months when the grass is shorter – at Sabi Sands you will enjoy great game viewing all year round.
