Sabi Sands Game Reserve
unrivalled big 5 Game viewing
The Sabi Sands Game Reserve (sometimes referred to as the Sabi Sand Wildtuin) is the most famous and well established of the private reserves which adjoin the western boundary of the Kruger National Park. With no fences between the reserve and Kruger, the animals are free to roam through the African wilderness.
The 65,000 hectare reserve offers possibly the best game viewing opportunities to be found anywhere on the African continent - especially for sightings of the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo) - indeed, the reserve has one of the highest concentrations of leopard in the world. Cheetah, wild dog and some 200 other animal species also can be found here, as well as over 350 species of birds - in fact, almost 5% of the world's bird species have been recorded in this region of South Africa.
Open safari vehicles, seating between 6 and 12 visitors, head out into the wild under the expert guidance of experienced rangers and insightful trackers. Guests are able to get in close contact with Africa's most exciting wildlife species, and are presented with unparalleled photographic opportunities. Nowhere else in South Africa will you experience a safari quite like the one you will have in Sabi Sand.
Two rivers supply the game reserve with a valuable water source. The Sand River flows through the reserve for 50 km from north west to south east whilst the Sabie River flows on the southern boundary.
The lodges here are some of the finest safari lodges in South Africa, and the luxury accommodation with private plunge pools provide an elegant contrast to the rugged bushveld.
