The Sabi Sands Game Reserve is one of the best safari destinations in South Africa where all kinds of camps attract tourists from far and wide to come and see the Big 5. This famous private game reserve takes its catchy name from two beautiful rivers that feed the Greater Kruger National Park region, the Sabie River and the Sand River. These two waterways are the core of all life here in this world-renowned South African wildlife paradise.
Sharing a 50 km unfenced boundary with Kruger, the Sabi Sands Game Reserve extends a vast 65,000 ha and originated in the 1950s thanks to the forward-thinking landowners who farmed livestock. Their children still run many of the private game reserves and luxury lodges within the reserve which is proud to conserve the highest density of big game in South Africa. Guests are privileged to drive off road on safari to track the big 5 and other rare and exciting sightings.
