Kruger Park & Sabi Sands

Safari Lodges

Our Kruger and Sabi Sands lodges

Our selection of Kruger and Sabi Sands lodges represent some of the finest safari accommodation in Africa. And you’ll have one of the widest ranges to choose from too: traditional thatched lodges, lamp-lit tented camps and modern, sculpted safari villas.

Some of our top lodge recommendations are the crème de la crème of safari accommodation. Facilities range from private pools, gyms and luxury spas to bird-watching hides and yoga studios. But you’ll also have a choice of more budget-friendly lodges and camps that welcome families with children, offering child-minders, junior ranger programmes, and kids’ menus. The standards of service and guiding are very high at all lodges and you’ll enjoy a wide range of activities – game drives, guided walks, night drives and community visits.

WHAT TO DO

on a Kruger/ Sabi Sand Safari

1. Go on a Game Drive

Led by your professional guide & eagle-eyed tracker, morning & afternoon game drives are the highlights of a Sabi Sands safari. Off-road driving is permitted for extra close-up sightings.

2. Walk the Wild Side

A guided nature walk gives you the chance to see the smaller details & enjoy some excellent bird watching. For the truly adventurous, multi-day guided hikes are available in the Kruger Park.

3. Look for Leopards

Everybody wants to see one; go on a Sabi Sands safari & you’re more or less guaranteed. It’s Africa’s best destination for up-close sightings of leopards. Ask us about the best ‘leopard lodges’.

4. Explore the Night

A spot-lit night drive gives you the chance to spot Africa’s seldom-seen nocturnal animals such as bush babies, giant eagle-owls, porcupines & serval cats. You’ll be back in time for dinner.

5. Watch the Waterhole

With accommodation set overlooking water, the best game viewing is often enjoyed from an armchair on a shaded terrace. Sit back with a drink & watch the action unfold in front of you.
