  • Luxurious and exclusive safari properties

Set adjacent to the Kruger National Park, animals pass freely across the border between the Kruger and Sabi Sands, affording an unparalleled game viewing extravaganza. The Big 5 - leopard, lion, buffalo, elephant and rhino - are present in the reserve, however, it is leopard sightings that remain one of the biggest highlights. As the most elusive member of the Big 5, these magnificent big cats are often seen on a Sabi Sands safari, something few other reserves can lay claim to. The Big 5 are hardly the only wildlife reason to stay on the reserve; you can expect to find an endless roster of species and over 300 different types of bird.

Within the Sabi Sands are a number of exclusive properties, ranging from the ultimate in bush luxury to sophisticated safari chic. Guides lead exciting excursions into the wilderness, with exhilarating game drives joined by daring bush walks and insightful night drives.
