Why

Sabi Sand is Brimming with the most spectacular wildlife sightings.

Sharing unfenced borders in the south-western corner of the world-renowned Kruger National Park is the privately owned Sabi Sand Game Reserve. With wildlife moving freely between the Kruger and the Sabi Sands, guests are afforded an equal opportunity of seeing the Kruger's diverse wildlife, including the famous Big Five (Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard).

The Sabi Sands is renowned for its big cat sightings, particularly the elusive leopard, and is internationally recognized for its selection of luxury safari accommodation, fewer crowds, off-road game drives that allow guides to follow animals into the bush, and spot-lit night safaris. The success of the Sabi Sands is greatly due to the abundance of waterholes that provide water throughout the year, attracting large herds of animals and predators.

The Sabi Sands Game Reserve is one of Africa's ultimate safari destinations and is ideal for those travelers who prefer an all-inclusive vacation where safari activities and meals are included during their stay.

Where

The Sabi Sands is relatively small compared to the Kruger. There are entry level lodges with the likes of Umkembe all the way up to world class 5-star experiences at places like MalaMala and Leopard Hills.

When

Winter, ie. May till October is cool and dry, and you have the easiest game viewing since trees have lost their leaves. But December to April mean beautiful, vibrant scenery and baby animals.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
