Sabi Sand Game Reserve


Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp Location Map

Located in the game-rich Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, and hidden on the banks of the Msuthu River lies Little Bush Camp. The warmth and vibrancy, combined with an intimacy and seclusion, makes this an ideal bush retreat for friends, families or small groups.

Skilled rangers and trackers lead you on adventurous wildlife safaris in open Land Rovers both day and night, tracking the Big 5 off-road and viewing up to 200 species of animals and 300 bird species. In addition, a walking safari with your ranger is optional and takes place after breakfast. Community tours to the local village, where the majority of the staff come from, can also be arranged.

The lodge itself is intimate, centred on an inviting lounge and leading to an elegant outdoor dining area that rests in the dappled shade of local trees. The pool area is just out of sight across the riverbed and an outdoor boma is the perfect setting for indulging in the finest safari cuisine under the African star-studded sky and surrounded by the enchanting noises of the African bush at night.

The lodge has just 6 beautiful suites, all with private decks overlooking the riverbed and surrounding natural bush. Each thatched suite is individually styled with a designer bed, draped mosquito nets, genuine African artefacts, wooden finishes and creative use of colours, textures and light.

Luxurious en-suite bathrooms feature both indoor and outdoor showers, while the heated spa bath on each secluded deck offers a delightfully decadent vantage point from which to relax and watch the bushveld and abundant wildlife.
