"100 Best Hotels" - Travel and Leisure 2007, 2008, 2009
Africa World Travel Award for Leading Safari Lodge
"World's Best Hotel" - Luxury Link
"Best Game Lodge in Southern Africa" - ASATA
Big game abounds throughout the reserve as the diverse habitat is home to the Big 5 - lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, and elephant as well as cheetah, wild dog, and some 200 other animal species indigenous to the area. It has the highest concentration of leopard in the world and is home to a remarkable 350 species of birds. On a single summer's day a visitor from the Northern Hemisphere will probably see more bird species than they are likely to see in a lifetime at home. It hardly ever takes long to spot great wildlife on the game drives, which means you get the most value out of your time on the roads.
Offering four distinct camps, Bush Lodge, Little Bush Camp, Selati Camp, and Earth Lodge, Sabi Sabi provides guests with accommodation to suit their style of travel, whether they desire a family adventure, a romantic retreat on a historic journey, or a contemporary turn on the conventional safari lodge.
Each day is organized around an early morning game drive followed by breakfast at the lodge and an optional walking safari before lunch. Your afternoon is free to swim in the pool, relax beneath the trees, enjoy the spa, or watch the wildlife in the water pan from the deck. An evening game drive is offered complete with sundowners and star gazing before a return to the lodge for a delicious evening meal. For those looking for even more activity, it is also possible...and suggested...to arrange a hiking excursion from one lodge to another.
