Fly from Cape Town to the Sabi Sands Reserve. Upon arrival you’ll be met by staff from Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge for the 30 minute drive to the lodge.
Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge is a 5 star lodge located in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, a 250 square mile reserve with a 30 mile unfenced border with the Kruger National Park. The oldest private reserve in South Africa, this area has only ever been a wilderness area and is the birthplace of sustainable wildlife tourism in southern Africa. Enjoying one of the most bio-diverse wildlife populations in Africa the Sabi Sand Reserve is home to the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino) as well as cheetah, plains game, and a large assortment of bird species. Game here is incredibly habituated, leading to extremely close encounters and close-up observation of wildlife. Game drives and night drives are complimented by short walks around the Sabi Sabi grounds looking for smaller species such birds and insects, the building blocks of the entire ecosystem.
At Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge families enjoy early morning and late afternoon game drives together, and between game drives kids have the option to experience Sabi Sabi’s Elefun Center. Their two programs, Junior Tracker (ages 4-8) and Junior Ranger (ages 9-12) help kids understand the bush through games designed to teach about different animal characteristics, map-reading skills, and arts and crafts activities. Sabi Sabi caters to an international clientele, so children are likely to make friends from all over the world. Overnight for four nights at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge.
