Sabi Sand Safari Tours
The Sabi Sand has unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park, the Timbavati Game Reserve, and other neighboring reserves. The unfenced borders allow wildlife to traverse the plains and pass between all the reserves, so opportunities for viewing are unpredictable.
The Sabi Sand is famous for its easy viewing of the Big Five, especially the leopard. They are the stealthiest members of the big cat family and generally not the easiest to view, and creates a feeling of anticipation and excitement on safari.
The Sabi Sand has become one of the most popular safari destinations to visit in South Africa. This is due to the pristine reserve land that stretches between the Sabi and Sand rivers that provides a water source for the park. This creates a lush and diverse natural habitat, boasting the most diverse and magnificent population of wild game and natural vegetation, in the region.

Sabi Sand Activities
Sabi Sand Game Reserve is the oldest private game reserve in South Africa and is the pioneer of sustainable safari tourism. With 65 000 hectares of precious African bushveld and bursting at the seams with an incredible selection of biodiversity, this is indeed the place to experience your true South African safari. This reserve is one of the most exclusive and luxurious private game reserves in the world and has an outstanding track record for providing more than 50 years of ultimate luxury safari and wild game photography experiences.
There are many highlights to look forward to in the Sabi Sand Reserve, of which it is well worth mentioning their personalized game drives on offer, guided bushwalks and unlimited bird watching opportunities. Professional guides specialize in running photography safaris for those wishing to take home the ultimate shot of a big predator — what a fantastic opportunity.
For a little bit of rest, and to ensure that you have a holistic safari experience, many of the lodges have spas, beauty therapists, wine cellars and masseuses — the ideal place and space to sit back and soak up all the beautiful memories of your safari experience.
Accessing The Sabi Sand is not too difficult. There are direct air transfers available upon request as most lodges have private airstrips or you can access the reserve by road, a 5-hour drive from Johannesburg on national highways. Note that due to the cost of vehicle hire, fuel, and the vehicle levy for the game reserve, this option is almost the same price as flying to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
