Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge


Deep in the bushveld overlooking a waterhole and an open plain, lies a lodge that pulses to the rhythm of Africa’s heartbeat. This is Bush Lodge, steeped in tradition, vibrant and warm, the Sabi Sabi of “Today”. With a history spanning over 35 years, the lodge has earned a reputation of a “luxury home in the bush”, service excellence and effortless personal attention. The conventional safari style showcases a vibrant and eclectic mix of furnishings and décor garnered from all corners of the African continent.

Bush Lodge has been sensitively designed to allow ample space to relax, unwind and savour the tranquility of the bush. The two swimming pools and large covered viewing decks overhanging the Msuthlu riverbed are an invitation to cool off in the filtered water or sit in comfort while spotting game at the well-utilised pan. An exquisitely furnished lounge, atrium and intimate bar area are perfect meeting places for friends old and new. As an extra indulgence, the Amani Spa at Bush Lodge offers the ultimate African Spa experience.

Activities at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge


Southern Africa captivates everyone who is lucky enough to experience its power and magic. The concept of ‘Safari’ conjures up images of adventure, dramatic landscapes and exciting wildlife. Sabi Sabi’s four luxury safari lodges are located in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve which is geographically integrated with the Kruger National Park.

Sabi Sabi epitomises Africa’s magic. With no fences between the reserve and the Kruger Park, big game abounds, moving freely through this unspoiled part of the ancient African continent. The Reserve is blessed with a great biodiversity of habitat and wildlife giving an excellent chance of close encounters with the ‘Big Five’ – elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard – as well as wild dog and cheetah. With over 300 bird species, the reserve is a birdwatcher’s delight.

There has been no hunting here for over half a century and the animals have become habituated to – and relaxed in the presence of – safari vehicles. The ultimate destination for a luxury safari; visitors to Sabi Sabi can look forward the unique experience of close encounters with animals as they continue unperturbed in their natural daily patterns of hunting, feeding, courting and suckling.

Safaris take place each morning and evening in open safari vehicles which drive through a wide variety of habitats, allowing visitors to view the vast interactions of the wild. After breakfast, guests on guided walking trails can experience the natural environment on foot. The dedicated, highly trained and experienced Rangers lead you to discover miracles of nature you may never have dreamed existed.


Families at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge


Families with children have always been welcomed at Sabi Sabi’s Bush Lodge. Now the family experience reaches a new level with the opening of the EleFun Centre, a fully fledged children’s facility within the lodge environs which fosters children’s awareness and appreciation of nature. There will be time for creative hobbies, arts and crafts, and the afternoon sessions will be for fun-filled bushveld games. Selected rangers will lead bush walks and talks, as well as specially planned children’s game drives. The beautifully designed center also includes a wonderful, secure, outdoor play area.

While set itineraries will take place every morning and afternoon, the children will also be welcome to enjoy the facility between formal sessions. Mums and dads can relax and enjoy the incredible safaris, get pampered in the spa, or just kick back and enjoy some private time, knowing that their children are reveling in their own special bushveld experience.

The recently completed center was designed by childcare professionals who set about creating a space that is fun, safe and educational. The EleFun Centre will be offering hands-on, interactive activities designed for 2 distinctly different age groups. The Junior Tracker program is for 4 to 8 year olds, and the Junior Ranger program is for children between the ages of 9 and 12.
