About Sabi Sands Reserve

The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is situated in the southwestern corner of the world-renowned Kruger National Park and consists of 160,620 acres. It is the most prestigious game reserve in South Africa, and is famous for incredible leopard sightings, an amazingly dense amount of wildlife and an incredible African safaris.

The reserve is made up of individual, often family-owned, unfenced private reserves, each with lodges discreetly tucked away in prime locations. Many have reciprocal arrangements with neighboring reserves to allow for greater freedom to track big game, and since the Sabi Sands is privately run, off-road driving, night drives and guided walking safaris, all of which truly add to the Africa experience.

With no fences between the individual reserves that make up the Sabi Sands (or between them and the Kruger Park), animals wander across vast stretches of land as they did years and years ago. With one of the richest game populations in the country, the chances of seeing the Big Five on one safari game drive (lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, elephant and rhino) are excellent. The Reserve is also home to a host of other wildlife including giraffe, kudu, gazelle, zebra, the rarely spotted wild dog and a great diversity of bird species.
