Sabi Sand Game Reserve


Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge Location Map

The world-renowned Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve is located in the game-rich Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. Skilled rangers and trackers lead you on journeys of discovery into the heart of the bushveld, and every game drive offers a myriad of unforgettable sights, producing new rushes of excitement and enjoyment.

The unique Earth Lodge encompasses superbly appointed suites in the heart of the African bushveld. Designed like no other game lodge, and sculpted deep into the earth making it almost invisible in the landscape, Earth Lodge is inspired by the textures, colours and shapes of the natural world.

A corridor leads you down beneath the ground, and you arrive into an uninterrupted bushveld panorama, and the start of a unique and unforgettable experience which is Earth Lodge. A sense of peace consumes you, and you are cocooned in luxury, inspiration and grace.

The boma, its walls sculpted from roots and built up piece by piece, captures the drama of an African night and embraces the power of the wilderness.

There are only 13 suites at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge. Each is attended by a private butler and is appointed with specially commissioned furnishings, a secluded plunge pool and open air shower.

The exclusive Amber Presidential Suite is generous beyond belief in its dimensions and boasts its own exercise room, steam room, study and kitchen. It captures art and luxury in one unique experience.

The Amani Spa offers massages, natural therapies or a classic spa.

Start TestimonialWe just got back from our trip to Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge. The whole experience was beyond wonderful and you might like the feedback that it was marvellous for Clive, my husband, as you may remember I requested a wheelchair for him. This would have been totally unnecessary for him as the staff were so attentive and picked us up and dropped us off in golf carts and it was great not to have to worry about how to get around, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you again for all your help and all the arrangements went smoothly - it couldn't have been better! Kind regards - we will recommend you to all our friends!End Testimonial
