Luxury in Sabi Sand Game Reserve: The best game viewing on the African continent
The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is situated in the south western corner of the world-famous Kruger National Park. Rent a luxury villa and make yourself at home in the most impressive game reserve in South Africa. With no fences between them and the Kruger Park, animals wander across enormous stretches of grazing land as they did years and years ago. With one of the richest game populations in the country, the chances of seeing the Big Five of lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino, are excellent. The Reserve is also home to a multitude of other animal species such as reedbuck, kudu, white rhino and spotted hyena. Leopards are also a main attraction of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and are so used to cars that they do not take much notice of them. Even when hunting, a leopard in the Sabi Sands will not mind a vehicle following it. Sabi Sand offers some of the best game viewing on the continent; you can follow nocturnal wildlife on adrenaline-charged spot lit night drives as well. Competent game rangers or guides going with you on game drives, make game viewing so much more satisfying and interesting. Should you choose to fly to your holiday destination, you can get a flight at OR Tambo daily, and fly to Nelspruit or to an airstrip near your lodge in Sabi.
Now picture yourself in the following situation: A lioness has just finished weaning her cubs, and because she is alone for once, she is clearly relishing her own company. The sun is setting over the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve as she washes her face like a giant tabby cat, yawns, stretches and goes to look for her cubs and the rest of her pride. A group of tourists sits enthralled in an open game-viewing vehicle, breathing in the lioness' rank scent, mingled with that of wild sage crushed beneath the wheels, listening to the ranger explaining lion behaviour in a quiet undertone. Meanwhile, the tracker scans the ground for other big-game spoor. Perhaps they'll be lucky enough to find a leopard stashing her kill in a tree tonight; or see jackals bounce through the high grass as they pursue invisible rodents, oblivious to the ranger's spotlight. You surely will hear hyenas laugh and lions roar in the distance. And when you look up into the sky, you will not believe how bright the stars shine at night. To fully appreciate the Sabi Sand Reserve and all it has to offer, we recommend a stay of a few nights in a luxury villa. When updating your wish list again, you should really put Sabi Sand Game Reserve very near the topmost position. Life is too short not to visit Sabi Sand!
