Along Kruger National Park’s western border lie numerous privately owned wildlife reserves, including Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. Kruger National Park’s main hallmark, its abundance and diversity of wildlife, is shared at Sabi Sands, but with several major distinctions. First, the quality of accommodation, food and service is exceptionally high. Second, there is wider availability of activities: the open vehicles are allowed to go off-road and conduct night game drives, while visitors also have the option of a walking safari with an armed tracker. This provides visitors with a more “authentic” bush experience, and allows a greater chance to spot nocturnal animals (e.g. leopard) rarely seen during the day. Third, because vehicles are able to go off-road, game-viewing is good year-round, not only during the dry season (May to Ocotber).
Lodges in the reserve include Singita (Boulders and Ebony camps), MalaMala (MalaMala Main Camp, Rattray’s and Sable camps), Londolozi (Granite, Tree, Pioneer, Founders and Varty), Ulusaba (Rock and Safari Lodge) and Cheetah Plains, Lion Sands (River and Ivory Lodges), Sabi Sabi (Earth, Bush, Selati and Little Bush Camp), Simbambili, Exeter, Inyati and Idube reserves.
