Sabi Sands Game Reserve
Adjoins the world famous Kruger National Park.
Big 5 game viewing at its best.
The mere mention of the name “Sabi Sands” conjures up visions of being surrounded by a large herd of buffalo, sitting on a safari vehicle and experiencing a leopard on a kill or even just watching a warthog family disappear with their tails in the air.
The Sabi Sands Game Reserve is 45 000 hectares in extent and directly borders on to the Kruger National Park which is to the East. The correct name for the Sabi Sands Game Reserve is “Sabi Sands Wildtuin”. With game/wildlife fences being down between it and the Kruger Park, the game has unrestricted movement.
Situated within the Sabi Sands are some of the best known and exclusive game or safari lodges. Names such as Sabi Sabi, Singita, Londolozi, Djuma, Idube, Inyati come to mind. Other camps that must also be mentioned are Elephant Plants, Notten’s Bush Camp and Savannah Tented Camp. A few private owners are also still privileged to own their own farms within the Sabi Sands Game Reserve.
The Sabi Sands is accessed either by road from Johannesburg, Sandton and O R Tambo and is a 4 1/2 hour drive. Alternatively, the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport is situated close to Nelspruit and the drive is then reduced to about 1 1/2 hours. Or, make use of any of a number of small airstrips and fly in.
The Sand and Sabie Rivers, automatically attract game – especially in the dry winter months. Game is abundant throughout the year however. Apart from Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo and Elephant, impala, kudu, giraffe, wild dog, cheetah, hippo, crocodiles, waterbuck, zebra, wildebeest, and all others found in the Kruger Park, are found in the Sabi Sands. Special sightings on game drive include hyena, porcupine, civets, genets, baby chameleons and one of my personal favourites – bush babies.
