Our second safari in the sabi sands. Amazing to say the least. The lodge is beautiful, the watering hole in front of the lodge is always packed with wildlife. The largest herd of elephants I have ever seen while I sat and ate lunch.
It can be a long drive from the airport but this place is certainly worth every bump in those dirt roads! The individual rooms were so spacious, huge bathrooms, and each had its own outdoor shower! The view outside the room is of the watering...More
my husband and I had a wonderful time here in May. The weather was perfect, the location is perfect and the staff were wonderful! We highly recommend this lodge because its located in Sabi Sands instead of Kruger park. We stayed at another lodge in...More

I stand to be corrected but in short I believe the answer is no. It’s not malaria free. However the risk is very low and with the right precautions and medication you’d be incredibly unlucky to get malaria. The greatest risk was in the evening eating when it’s dark with lights on in the bar and dining area, both of which were in the open air. Repellent and correct clothing reduces the risk further. They have mosquito nets over the bed. Hope this helps.
