3 Day Impressive Sabi Sands Luxury Tour

Sabi Sands Safari Tour - Lioness

Sabi Sands

The ultimate South Africa safari destination!

The most famous private game reserve of all. Sabi Sands Game Reserve, adjacent to South Africa's flagship Kruger National Park, offers a safari experience found nowhere else in the world. Game viewing possibilities are simply unparalleled, including the much sought after 'Big 5'. Add a fantastic range of luxury lodges suiting all tastes and a African dream safari is born.

There are no fences between Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands Game Reserve, so wildlife roams freely in huge natural environment. The Sabi Sands is in particular well known for its amazing leopard sightings. The most elusive animal of the Big 5 is frequently spotted when going on a game drive in the reserve. As such, Sabi Sands offers the ultimate photographic safari one can think of.

You can be certain to return home with some absolutely stunning pictures and memories. Besides the Big 5, other game species occur in great numbers, among which are more than 300 bird species. Sabi Sands possibly makes the best South African safari destination for wildlife enthusiasts, photographers and bird watchers alike.

Get picked up from O.R Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg Hotel or catch a quick domestic flight.

The drive to the Lodge can take about 5-6 hours.( Domestic flights are more or less 1 hour)

Arrive in the afternoon, settle in and enjoy lunch, before you depart on your first exciting open vehicle Sunset Game drive.

Return back to your accommodation and enjoy dinner around the boma fire.

The following day, during summer, an early wake-up at 05h00 starts the day (while winter is later at 05h45). It gets very hot and guides like to bring guests back to camp before 9am while it is still cool. Walks take between 2 and 3 hours and are followed by a hearty breakfast at the dining table.

Between 11h00 and 14h30 guests have time to themselves. Relax with a book, take a nap with the sounds of the local birdlife, have a dip in the pool and catch a tan in the sun. At 14h30 lunch is served.

The Sunset Game drive begins at 15h30 and traverses this exceptional area of Sabi Sands. At the time the sun sets, guides take their guests to a spot where they can snack on biltong, nuts and chips, while sipping on something cold(Inclusions of snacks depends at which Lodge you will be staying). Return to the lodge by 19h30 and freshen up before dinner at about 08h30.

Please note the above itinerary is only to give you an idea of your Safari program and may differ from different Lodges.
