Sabi Sands

Kruger National Park

The Sabi Sands is perhaps the most famous Private Game Reserve in the Southern Hemisphere. This 66 000 hectare Private Game Reserve adjoins The Kruger National Park and has become globally recognised for the highest quality game viewing due to the incredible predator density. This coupled with the ultra luxury lodges which own private concessions within the reserve has guaranteed the fame of the Sabi Sands.

This world renowned game reserve is also one of the oldest. The Sabi Sands Reserve was initially founded as the “Sabie Game Reserve” in 1898. With over a century of conservation and wildlife management the reserve and its wildlife have blossomed.  The Sabi Sands gets its name from the two rivers which provide its life-blood throughout the year. The Sand River flows through the reserve from the northwest to southeast corner while the Sabie River flows through the southern boundary of The Sabi Sands Reserve.  It is this water which sustains a greater herbivore population and thus the accompanying predator density.

The Sabi Sands allows for easy access from both Johannesburg – a forty five minute flight; and from Cape Town – a two and a half hour flight – into Kruger’s own international airport or even directly into the newly revamped Skukuza airport, located within Kruger National Park itself.

The Sabi Sands is first and foremost your perfect wildlife-packed luxury safari but it allows the added benefit of also combining easily with many other incredible African holiday destinations like Cape Town, Victoria Falls or even Mozambique’s Indian Ocean islands.
