Explore the Kruger Park & Sabi Sands
Few Big 5 safari destinations can match the reliability and quality of game viewing at the Kruger Park. A Kruger safari is all about big cats, giant-tusked elephants and rivers full of hippos and crocodiles. You’ll enjoy day and night game drives and can choose from accommodation ranging from family-friendly to super-romantic. Private, game-rich concessions within the Kruger Park are highly recommended for discerning safari travellers.
And nowhere is the Kruger safari experience bettered than in the Sabi Sands Private Reserve. A set of exclusive, privately-run concessions that adjoin the Kruger Park, ‘Sabi’ is home to leading safari brands including Mala Mala, Londolozi, Singita and the eponymous Sabi Sand. It offers the most luxurious safari accommodation in Africa as well as honeymoon hideaways, activity-packed family lodges and genuine value-for-money camps.
Above all, it is the well-deserved reputation for Big 5 sightings that makes a Sabi Sands safari such a worthwhile investment. You’ll be in the hands of some of the best guides and trackers in the business with close-up sightings of lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino more or less guaranteed over a two or three-day stay. Back at camp you’ll enjoy superb meals and sophisticated wines plus luxuries ranging from spa treatments and private pools to yoga studios and table-for-two dining.
A Kruger/Sabi Sands safari is usually the centrepiece of a larger travel itinerary. The natural attractions of the surrounding Panorama Route lie within easy reach of the Kruger and your safari is easily combined with South Africa’s other highlights – Cape Town, the Cape Winelands and the Garden Route.
Fly from Johannesburg or Cape Town to the Kruger’s Hoedspruit or Nelspruit airports and simply sit back on a short overland transfer to your Kruger or Sabi lodge. You can even fly straight into the reserve if you want. And thanks to such slick logistics, you can add exotic destinations such as Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago or thundering Victoria Falls to your Kruger travel plans. Ask us how.
