Sabi Sand Game Reserve

The Sabi Sand Reserve and Sabi Sand Wild Garden is 65 000 hectares and borders with its 50 kilometre east side of the Kruger National Park, so all animals can move freely between the different parks as there are no fences. Sabi Sand has two rivers that supply the area of ​​water: the Sand River from the north-west to south-east and the Sabie River runs along the southern border. Because of these rivers the reserve has a wide variety of wildlife, even in the dry winter months. The entire Big Five can be seen (elephant, buffalo, leopard, rhino and lion) and also giraffes, cheetahs, zebras, wild dogs and many different antelope. In total there are more than 145 different mammals, 110 different reptiles, 330 species of trees and over 500 species of birds (including migratory birds).

Game drives are done with open 4x4 safari vehicles in groups of 6 to 12 people. These safaris are accompanied by qualified rangers and a 'tracker' who knows where wild animals are hiding by the smallest signals. During the game drives you have the opportunity to make close acquaintance with African wildlife, much to learn from the rangers and of course to take beautiful pictures. The morning game drives leave early when the bush awakens and the sun rises. The safaris depart in the late afternoon when the sun sets again towards the horizon when most animals are active, and the carnivores are preparing for the hunt. After a sun-downer, the game drives go further, but now using the powerful spotlights on the safari vehicle. On average, you can go on safari every day for about 6 hours in the bush. There are also opportunities for bushwalks where the emphasis is on birds, wildlife and small animals.

In the reserve there are some beautiful luxury lodges, all of good quality and well cared for.
