The Sabi Sand Reserve is the oldest and most successful private reserve in South Africa and is recognised as the birthplace of sustainable wildlife tourism in the region, as well as an excellent South African safari destination. Formally established in 1948 by private landowners, this magnificent reserve lies adjacent to the famed Kruger National Park.
Today, many of the private lodges in this region are owned by the third and fourth generations of the founding families, and this has ensured the high level of sustainability and conservation in the area.
This diverse and wildlife-rich reserve covers an area over 160 000 acres and offers visitors the opportunity to view the big 5 as well as a host of endangered and unique flora and fauna. With no fences separating the Sabi Sands from the Kruger National Park, wildlife roams freely in their natural habitat, providing exceptional and intimate game viewing of countless species, including the elusive leopard.
Home to one of the largest and most bio-diverse wildlife populations in Africa, with over 200 animal species co-existing in this territory year-round, the breath-taking landscapes and spectacular game-viewing found in this region will leave you with memories of your travel in Africa that will last a lifetime.
