We took a trip with 3 different safari accommodations, from camping along the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, to a lodge in Madikwe, to Sabi Sabi in Sabi Sands, S, Africa. Each place had its pluses and minuses, but each was a great contribution to the overall trip. SabiSabi is quite "grand,' upscale and designed to spoil you with "everything," or...

I am currently sitting on the deck at Sabi Sabi bush lodge looking out over the waterhole as I write this. The experience here is nothing short of exceptional. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome and the service, facilities, grounds, food and game drives are amazing. The room (or should I say suite) I am...

My husband and I recently staid here for 3 nights at the end of a long trip to Africa. We had an unbelievable time. Our guide, Zwa, took exceptional care of us, and we saw The Big 5 on our first day. Our room was exceptionally comfortable, and the bathroom was enormous. Every meal was served buffet style, but the...

Wow does this place deliver. Our cottage was amazing and service was excellent. Our tracker and guide were also amazing and looked after us from sun rise to sun set. The view overlooking the waterhole was breathtaking. The high tea served before our afternoon safari was incredible. Cannot say enough about this place. Did I mention dinner under the stars?Hope...

We visited Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge in August. There were 22 of us family members traveling together....ages 7 to 70! We all had a fantastic experience there. I can truly say there was something for everyone to enjoy. The villas and suites were luxurious for us adults to enjoy. There was a pool and kids center (Elefun Center) for the...

This was our first visit both to South Africa and on a safari, which was perhaps the highlight of our 3 weeks - we were not disappointed. From our transfer from the landing strip with friendly ranger Jessie driving the land-rover along the uneven tracks to our very warm welcome at Sabi Sabi reception, we could not find fault -...

We spent an exorbitant amount of money to book a villa here. We were not given a proper tour of the grounds or of our room when we first arrived. We had our items stolen from our room while we were on our bush tour. They stole watches, a go pro and cuff links. We notified the Manager the last...
