Sabi Sabi Game Reserve, Kruger NP

Sabi Sabi Game Reserve is one of the world’s finest hotels. Located in South Africa’s Kruger National Park, this luxury resort offers incredible value, style, atmosphere and, of course, exceptional wildlife encounters. The environment is natural, wild, and it’s not uncommon to see animals passing by while you enjoy your hot tub. The resort is made up of lodges, uniquely decorated in true bush style, offering incredible views of nature, quality service and a fantastic experience.

Sabi Sabi Game Reserve has 52 rooms and suites. It remains an exclusive luxury lodge in the middle of nature. The reserve consists of 4 independent lodges, each with a distinct character reflecting different atmospheres. Some will take you back to the 1920s and others are decidedly modern. You can choose the atmosphere that suits you best depending on the experience you want to have.

The experience is of course in the wild. Look for the Big 5 during the day, and even at night if you fancy a night safari. Otherwise, stop by the boma, the traditional barbecue, or enjoy a more subtle, gourmet dinner with a sip of South African wine. Sabi Sabi Game Reserve is truly one of the world’s best hotels, and if you want to go on safari and indulge yourself, this is the destination for you.
