Start TestimonialDuring our stay at Sabi Sabi we were made very welcome, the staff from arrival to departure were always happy to help whether it be a question about the wildlife, or just a cup of coffee in the afternoon, the standard of service we had was first class. The rooms were clean, spacious and perfect for the trip. The food throughout was again exceptional, though far too much to have every course at every meal. Our Ranger (Jabu) and Tracker (Richard) were always trying to ensure we saw the maximum amount of animals and were very informative about the area, the upkeep and animals, whether it be a rhino, or an ant, even the best way to clear a runny nose with elephant dung!

Start TestimonialOur arrangements and Sabi Sabi experience were exemplary! All travel wentwithout a hitch, and we both loved Bush Lodge & Selati at Sabi Sabi. The staff, rangers and trackers were knowledgeable and most accommodating. I would be happy to recommend Travel Butlers! Many thanks for your help and patient assistance as we planned a wonderful South Africa experience!End Testimonial
