Driving to the Sabi Sands game reserve is another option.

Travelling long distance before your arrive at your Sabi Sands accommodation will impact your overall experience, so you need to minimize your travel time before you arrive at your lodge in order to be on time for your afternoon (evening) safari activity.

“An amazing experience at Sabi Sabi”  
Dmitri S    May 5, 2017    New York City, New York   

We just came back from our first ever safari trip. We went not knowing what to expect. However, after just one or two drives, you get into a routine and by the end of our trip we were "experts". Sabi Sabi was the third reserve we stayed in on this trip.

Luxurious accommodations, exceptional service and friendliness of the staff were distinctive features of this lodge. The morning drives (you receive wake-up call at 5:30am) started with a coffee/juice and light refreshments, just to wake everyone up. The tiredness from such an early rise wares off pretty quickly as you breathe the fresh air of the African savannah. After all groups got into their respective trucks, we were off to see the sunrise and find any animals that are active at this hour. A huge part of the enjoyment depends on the rangers and trackers that go with you on all the drives. These guys are real experts and very often were able to lead us to a particular animal we wanted to see just by following their footprints. We were lucky to have Lazarus and Creamson as our ranger and tracker, respectively. They had patience and knowledge to follow animals and to show us amazing scenes. For example, we saw how leopard was feeding on an antelope carcass sitting on the tree and hyenas were under that tree waiting for pieces of meat to fall down. Or we saw how a pack of wild dogs were coming back from the hunt, one of them carrying a boar's head in its jaws.
After the 3hrs morning drive you come back to the reserve where a wonderful breakfast awaits prepared fresh to the order. After that you have a down time when you can relax in the spa, go to the beautiful outdoor pool or just sit on the porch and view the animals coming to a water hole not far from the property. Don’t forget your binoculars! They will enhance your animal spotting.
The afternoon drive started at 4pm and continued for over 3 hrs again. Gourmet dinner was served hot buffet style with chef coming to each table and talking about that evening selections. If you come as a family with small kids, this particular reserve provides wonderful and secure play area. Since my kids were older, they were not that interested, but we heard quite a few happy voices from the playground. Our overall experience at Sabi Sabi was superb, and we would wholeheartedly recommend it to any of our friends.

The camp manager Gary was so welcoming and friendly. His enthusiasm for the bush is infectious. Thanks for a wonderful time in a special place.
Also thanks for arranging a truly unique bat sighting!!!!

We absolutely loved this resort. The staff is so warm and welcoming, the rooms and public areas are beautifully and comfortably decorated, the food was delicious (I'm a San Francisco foodie pescetarian and absolutely loved the food/presentation), and the game drives were unforgettable. Don't miss the bush walk--we walked through a field of butterflies, saw all kinds of animal tracks, and enjoyed a different view of the landscape we'd been driving through all week. I would also highly recommend visiting the Thornybush Community Project gardens with Gavin, where some of the beautiful food served in Sabi Sand resorts is grown by local women as part of a community collective. We also visited a school, which had an incredible impact on us. I loved Simbambili--a little piece of my heart is still there

We loved the fact that we were teamed up with the same driver/tracker/four other guests in the same car over the course of all the days - we had such fun together and really got involved in trying to spot the animals. And we were rewarded with multiple leopard sightings and the other big 5, as well as all the other beautiful animals - zebra, giraffes, kudu, impala etc - and many birds. The rooms - including outdoor shower, dining area, food, pool, gift shop, massage, the lovely candle light (and lack of electric lighting) and special sundowner by the river were all fabulous. We felt so relaxed and welcomed. The staff were professional and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. They went the extra mile to engage with my 9 year old daughter. This place suited us perfectly. It was top class without being pretentious. Worth every penny - and actually better value than some other lodges. Recommended without hesitation. We hope to return one day. Thank you to all - Dale, Suzie, Gift, Desmond, Tulani, Riddent, Joe and everyone else (sorry if names are miss-spelt).

The bungalows are very spacious and well equipped.The welcome is kind and warm and the staff is amazing. They provided me with a special birthday dinner which made the stay even more memorable.

The game drives with the Ranger Fred and our tracker May where an experience. We saw a lot and as haveing been on Safari before we received so much more indepth information since we did not have to worry about seeing all the big 5 (which we saw anyway).

If you are planning a trip to S.A. And want to spend time in the bush, then Sabi Sands is a must. We have been travelling to to South Africa every year for the past 12 years and stayed at many game reserves including the Krugar many times. This year we saved up hard and achieved our dream, to stay in Sabi Sands. All that I can say it's Well Worth every penny, the reserve is just something else! It's the best and it's a must, forget the rest push the the boat out and and stay at in Sabi Sands.. We chose Elephant Plains due to our budget. It was wonderful food fantastic, staff brilliant, service first class.
We saw the big five for the the first time in 12 years....
So if you are looking for a safari holiday then look no further this place is the best.
Memories we will never forget.

The staff are genuinely interested in your adventure and happiness joining in stories and experiences of each game drive .Be prepared for the early starts 5.30 am game drive however believe me this is the best time of the day to see the animals and is a magical time to see the bush. The lodge and rooms are to a very high standard with all rooms having great views and the best bit being no fences !!!! YOU REALLY ARE IN THE BUSH 🙂 .
This is without doubt a luxury Safari

The Lodge is spectacularly situated atop a rocky outcrop, offering magnificent views over the bush and an active waterhole on the plains below. The Reserve comprises over 10,000 hectares of incredibly diverse ecosystems making Leopard Hills the safari ideal destination.

The Ideal Itinerary at Sabi Sands Game Reserve

The ideal itinerary should start by arriving at your Sabi Sands accommodation by lunch time so you can check-in, have a meal and relax before your first game drive in the Sabi Sands.  Being tired & hungry may affect your experience as the safari rangers will try their best to find the Big Five including the elusive leopard which might take a little longer than the allocated time for the game drive.

Whether you are arriving by air or by road, you need to plan your itinerary carefully. Check in time at your Sabi Sands accommodation is between 12h00 & 14h00, you need to arrive as early as possible.  

It's recommended that you stay the previous night near the Sabi Sands gate closest to your Sabi Sands accommodation if you are planning to arrive by road.

The staff are genuinely interested in your adventure and happiness joining in stories and experiences of each game drive .Be prepared for the early starts 5.30 am game drive however believe me this is the best time of the day to see the animals and is a magical time to see the bush. The lodge and rooms are to a very high standard with all rooms having great views and the best bit being no fences !!!! YOU REALLY ARE IN THE BUSH 🙂 .
This is without doubt a luxury Safari
