This site is worth every penny, even during the drought. The rooms are spacious suites, each with a private backyard with small swimming pool, and views of the range. The furnishings and decor are pieces of art, in fact, the entire lodge is one large statement of artistic design. Everything was to a very high standard, and we'd return sooner...

Earth lodge is a must do! The lodge manager Nadia and her superb staff will ensure you have an unforgettable time in Sabi Sabi. Our waiter George was a delight and the chef's food was exquisite! Our ranger Franscois, and our tracker Eric were both absolutely fantastic! Can't wait to go back.

We (29/31 couple) stayed 3 nights in the earh lodge. First of all, our ranger , Taylor, was very professional and we felt her enthusiasm for the nature surrounding us. And also her tracker, Candy, is really a great guy! The game drives were top! The room was also nice and clean, and the stuff always very friendly. A great...

Thanks very much for your feedback and sharing with us. We are delighted you had a wonderful safari experience with Tayla and Candy and particularly enjoyed dining in the wine cellar during your stay. However, we are very concerned to read about the negative experience on your departure day and can assure you that is not at all our normal...

From the moment we arrived at the Earth Lodge we were treated like VIP's by Luke, the manager, by the dining room staff and by our ranger, Joe and spotter Richard. Luke made sure we could dine in the location we desired and also adjusted some of the timing for us which was super! Whatever we needed was never too...

The safari experience was really fantastic and the safari staff were excellent (special mention to Given and FW). We saw all the animals and many of them come very close to the lodges - especially the elephants. The lodge is great and fits in with the setting nicely. The only real disappointment was with the dining, mainly on the basis...

I cannot speak highly enough about Earth Lodge. The staff were extremely polite, friendly and accommodating to our needs. The service from housekeeping right through to all levels was exemplary. We arrived after a very stressful and delayed trip and the minute we arrived, Luke was outside to greet us with a very warm welcome. He escorted us to reception...

I cannot rate this lodge highly enough. Our short stay with them was amazing from beginning to end. I have worked myself in the hotel industry and could not fault the hospitality and attention to detail. From little notes and turndown gifts left in our room, to consistent staff presence who knew what you liked and tailored your experience. On...

When you drive up to the property its deceptive since you can not see anything but steps defending to the entry underground...we were thrilled when we walked through to see an exquisite entry and property with a modern yet primitive decor. The same goes for the rooms which are all situated off of a dirt path but beautiful and well...

Sabi Sabi is contrary to Kruger a private resort. So you don't drive your own car, but you go with a ranger and (and this is very important) in an open jeep, which makes the experience so much nicer. We stayed 3 nights and saw many times over all the animals that we wanted to see. We were really impressed...
