Sabi Sabi

Deep in the African bushveld, within South Africa's famous Sabi Sand Reserve, 'something enchanting lies in wait' - the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve. This award winning private game reserve offers world-class standards in luxury accommodation, exceptional close wildlife encounters, personal service and delicious cuisine. The Sabi Sabi philosophy of 'yesterday, today and tomorrow' stems from over 100 years of safari experience; a history richly woven into the atmosphere of each of its four uniquely individual safari lodges - Selati Camp, Bush Lodge, Little Bush Camp and Earth Lodge. South Africa and its warm hospitality echo through the style and flavour of each and every one.

Bush Lodge

Bush Lodge

Bush Lodge

For decades Bush Lodge has been Sabi Sabi's flagship lodge, famed for its warmth, vibrancy and legendary hospitality. A favourite amongst travellers in search of luxury accommodation, Bush Lodge is a luxurious safari escape set in the heart of the Sabi Sabi bushveld overlooking a waterhole and an African plain.

Earth Lodge

Earth Lodge

Earth Lodge

Earth Lodge is a sanctuary symbolising a new era in luxury South African safari lodges. Sculpted into a slope of the earth, almost invisible in the landscape, the lodge uses texture, light and space to present a lodge like no other. Taking its cue from the surrounding environment, it has been described as the most environmentally sensitive lodge in Africa.

Lion Sand Ivory Lodge

Lion Sand Ivory Lodge

Ivory Lodge

"Unparalleled and extraordinarily beautiful in its simplicity and texture" is how Ivory Lodge has been described, and it has been recognised with various international awards. As the family who have carefully designed and crafted everything in this luxurious lodge, we are incredibly proud of Ivory Lodge's iconic status. And we know that very few will get to experience the African Bushveld in such lavish comfort and style.

Each suite is operated as a private Villa, which combines a glorious escape from reality and feeds ones soul with a kaleidoscope of sunset blues, pinks and purples. Intensely vibrant and quietly wild, Ivory Lodge is a place you would like to keep a secret but you will not be able to resist sharing with friends and family, alike. Our six luxurious suites offer exquisite simplistic style surrounded by untamed African Bush. Each suite includes a private rim flow pool, exquisitely appointed large dedicated bedroom and lounge, and simply More of everything.

Lion Sands 1933 Lodge

Lion Sands 1933 Lodge

1933 Lodge

" You have to know your roots in order to find your wings !" This is exactly how our great grandfather, Guy Aubrey Chalkley felt when he first discovered the raw beauty and spirit of the Kingston Reserve, back in 1933. Three generations later we were committed to building our own private camp as a tribute to our great grandfather's pioneering spirit, which we aptly named, 1933.

Our family often stays in the camp and we invite friends, family and guests the world over to come and enjoy our warm, personal and luxurious home nestled on the banks of the Sabie River. 1933 is available for exclusive use and offers secluded luxury with dedicated staff. The lodge comprises four spacious suites, each with their own private view of the Sabie River, and a children's dormitory, able to sleep up to eight children. Every luxury or creature comfort you may desire has been thought of, and we know your family will enjoy creating incredible memories together, in a home that is filled with so many of ours.

Lion Sands Chalkley Tree House

Lion Sands Chalkley Tree House

Chalkley Tree House

The African landscape stretches as far as the eye can see at Lion Sands, and we knew we had to find a special place to capture and enjoy its vastness and splendour. Guy Aubrey Chalkley once set up camp in a majestic centuries-old Leadwood Tree to escape predators roaming the plains below.  We decided that this would be the ideal place to build the ultimate bush bedroom, the Chalkley Treehouse. The tree house is a secure and lavish platform under the African stars, with all the comforts that a guest can experience at a five star safari lodge. We take our guests to the tree house at sunset, where drinks and a scrumptious picnic dinner await them. The hours of African dusk can be enjoyed relaxing and absorbing the vastness of the bushveld as it transforms from day to night, before turning in for slumber beneath the incredible night sky.

Lion Sands Kingstone Treehouse

Lion Sands Kingstone Treehouse

Kingstone Treehouse

Make your way through rows of magnificent white boulders and across a small drawbridge, and you will find Africa opening up in front if you. Set amid the pure and untouched wild, you will be surrounded by African bush and uninhibited wildlife at its best. 

The Kingston Treehouse is constructed entirely from wood and glass, with contemporary décor in understated hues of greys, white, black and purple. No matter what the weather has in store, you will have a safe and luxurious setting with a unique window to enjoy the ever-changing views. In fact, we defy you to find two identical African sunsets.

The 60m2 Treehouse is situated about 5 minutes from the main lodge, and you will have radio contact with the rangers, should you choose to. You will also find some cellphone reception; but don’t expect any wi-fi in the bush.  Kingston is equipped with full bathroom and shower facilities, and Africology products to complete your sensory experience. 

Before a dinner of tapas or a full meal with Champagne, enjoy an hour-long massage under the stars to relax and become quiet with the nature around you. A yoga mat and chart are also provided for your use, should the whim strike you.

Lion Sands Narina Lodge

Narina Lodge

Perched amongst a canopy of 100 year old trees overlooking the Sabie River the style is that of a luxurious treehouse where the main areas link via raised wooden walkways to the nine private suites. If you are looking for a Lodge which has a closer connection to its landscape yet offers private luxury as defined then Narina has achieved this perfect blend of style and experience

Lion Sands River Lodge

Lion Sands River Lodge

River Lodge

River Lodge offers you one of the warmest welcomes you could hope to encounter on your travels; hosted by our family of extraordinary handpicked staff, who will make you feel completely relaxed and at home. In River Lodge we feel like we have captured the spirit of the Sabie River, where the quiet luxury of our rooms provides a place of repose, after a day of overwhelming and enriching adventure. A view like we have of the Sabie River cannot be wasted, which is why we insisted on giving each of the 20 luxuriously thatched bedrooms at River Lodge its own private wooden viewing deck. With the quietly rambling river outside your room, you won't have to go far to see wildlife or to drink in the surrounding Sabi Sand Reserve whilst overlooking the world- famous Kruger National Park, all at one glance.

With 5000 hectares/ of wild bush in this private concession within the world-renowned Kruger National Park, you can go exploring off-road and follow the footsteps of the leopard, track down a herd of elephant or simply wait for them to come to you.

Let the Sabie River itself welcome you to this endless African landscape. The Tinyeleti Treehouse, which translates to Many Stars, is not merely a vantage point from where to observe the splendor that is The Sabie River and all the life it sustains, but rather an open-air invitation to take your place and become part of it.
