Take me back to Earth Lodge! What a treat this stay was and we left feeling totally spoilt. The most incredible people made our stay truly special. The rooms were spacious, private and very tastefully decorated. The food was varied and delicious and chef Coennie oozes with passion for his job. The service was effortless. The game experience was amazing...

Sabi Sabi Earth lodge was absolutely incredible and there was no expense spared. The food was incredible, the staff as friendly as stating with a family and the accommodation stunningly beautiful and earthy combined with extreme luxury. It's not an inexpensive place to visit so I'd only go for a couple of days but it is well worth the experience.

The most luxurious lodge I have ever stayed in. Treated with absolute care by all the staff. Top notch for a visit to the bush! A special mention to our guide, Tayla and her tracker, Candy, whom are extremely knowledgeable about the bush and a pleasure to speak to! Sabi Sabi earth lodge exceed their 5 star rating!

Spend three nights at he Hotel. The hotel is just amazing, the way the architecture is blended with nature is great. The rooms are better than a 5 star hotel anywhere. The best part is the service, the staff was really really nice and friendly. It really exceeded my expectations!

Spent two fantastic nights here and all I can say is it exceeded our high expectations (from other reviews on trip advisor....). So many nice and personal touches.

Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge is free from flaws, every detail from the moment you arrive to the moment you very sadly leave is thought of in a wonderfully creative way. This lodge is luxury safari in it's truest form. Upon arrival, we were in awe of the ecological, modern design of the lodge, the spectacular views of the bush, and...
