This was by far the greatest vacation I have ever taken. The safaris were amazing and Jabu was such an incredible guide I couldn't have asked for a greater experience The food was incredible every meal and the service was outstanding. The rooms were beautiful and the staff was exceptional.

Accommodations, the food, the people were all amazing at this resort. We had incredible safaris with knowledgeable guides and saw an incredible amount of wildlife. I cannot say enough about how incredible the experience was. I will return to the Sabi lodges.

I visited the Bush Lodge this April as a preview to a longer visit to Botswana. I asked my agent (Geographic Expeditions) that I wanted them to focus on the guide quality rather than accommodations. However they selected a venue that was excellent at both. The Lodge itself is marvelous. It has spacious common rooms, a large dining area for...

We spent three nights at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge as part of our 12 day group tour. The accommodations & food were outstanding, the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. There are plenty of viewing/relaxing areas, a spa & lots of snacks! Ask for Ranger Francois & Tracker Dollon on safari😁

I stayed in the villa with my family. It was huge and one of the most luxurious suites I've ever stayed in. Our ranger was excellent and we saw all of the Big 5 on our first game drive. This was my first visit to the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. It is now one of my favourite safari destinations....

When I booked through my agent I told them I wanted great guides and Sabi delivered in spades. In 3 days (6 drives plus 2 walks) we saw the Big 5 (leopard, lion, elephant, Cape buffalo and rhino). In some cases very close. It was a marvelous experience. The Lodge itself is first rate with enough amenities to satisfy most...

A bit overvalue, but a beautiful property with fantastic service. A great safari experience, probably like no other you will experience. I would return to the property but I do suggest they add a fitness center and enhance the spa a bit.

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...
