Arrive in Africa, and it can feel a little frightening to suddenly be in the heart of the wild and surrounded by elephants and hippos. Safari is not a standard tourist experience as it is a journey into the rhythm of nature. The Sabi Sands Game Reserve is an idyllic entry point that blends the luxury and ease of a private reserve with the beauty of the Greater Kruger. Relaxed and enchanting, Sabi Sands is the perfect place to ease into your safari experience that is enhanced by the quality of your lodge with the unadulterated five-star quality of a boutique hotel found while overlooking a waterhole and being surrounded by wildlife.
A representative will greet you at O. R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and assist you in transferring onto a domestic flight destined for Sabi Sands Game Reserve in the southwest of Kruger. The unfenced reserve shares a boundary with Kruger National Park and is an integral piece of the ecosystem, meaning you will experience all of the famous animals within an area close to the lodge. Londolozi has its own mini-concession, helping provide an exclusivity to the experience. Touch down and go on your first game drive, one that’s likely to be packed with rhinos, lions, elephants, and buffalos. Then check in to the lodge and spend the evening relaxing on the verandah, gazing down at the animals by the water.
