Deep in the African bushveld, within South Africa’s famous Sabi Sand Reserve, ‘something enchanting lies in wait’ – the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve.
This award winning private game reserve offers world-class standards in luxury accommodation, exceptional close wildlife encounters, personal service and delicious cuisine.The Sabi Sabi philosophy of ‘yesterday, today and tomorrow’ stems from over 100 years of safari experience; a history richly woven into the atmosphere of each of its four uniquely individual safari lodges – Selati Camp, Bush Lodge, Little Bush Camp and Earth Lodge. South Africa and its warm hospitality echo through the style and flavour of each and every one.
Indulgent and romantic, the historically themed Selati Camp is the Sabi Sabi of Yesterday. Conjuring up memories of when time drifted slowly and luxury embraced you in an effortless whisper.
A celebration of the 19th century grand steam train era, the exquisite seven suite Selati Camp is infused with romance and history and captures the ‘Yesterday’ of Africa. The recently refurbished suites, including the LM Honeymoon suite and Ivory Presidential suite, are the epitome of classic vintage styling, retaining all the charm whilst including ultra-luxurious touches.
The suites feature original antiques and memorabilia, and floor to ceiling glass doors create a connection with the bush outside, leading to a private outdoor space. This hidden haven offers a deep stone bath and open-air shower, to cool off from the heat of the day or relax under a blanket of stars in complete seclusion.
Selati Camp is complemented by renowned South African hospitality…from the welcoming dining area and outdoor boma gently illuminated by railway lanterns, to the inviting pool and spacious deck with far-reaching bushveld views, this is the ideal hideaway.
Here the tradition of warm African hospitality greets you, endless views of the African bush surround you and every whim is anticipated in the harmonious family of ‘Today’s’ Bush Lodge.
Famed for its vast open spaces and uninterrupted vistas of the natural bushveld, Bush Lodge takes you on a decorative journey through the African continent. Each of the 25 suites, including the Mandleve Presidential Suite and Luxury Villas, is air-conditioned and feature naturally sourced décor to blend into the luxuriousness of your surroundings – with sumptuous linens and fabrics, en-suite glass fronted bathroom with indoor and al-fresco shower that lead to a private patio.
There is ample space to relax, unwind and savour the tranquillity of the bush and as an extra indulgence, the Amani Spa at Bush Lodge offers the ultimate African spa experience. The two swimming pools and enormous covered viewing decks overlook a waterhole where wildlife regularly come to drink. Families are well-catered for at Bush Lodge and children of all ages can enjoy the EleFun Centre, where fun and games with trained caregivers are aimed at nurturing a deeper understanding and love for the surrounding bush.
LITTLE BUSH CAMP
Pure excellence is at the heart of this intimate hideaway on the banks of the Msuthlu riverbed, surrounded only by the sounds of the wild and the unending view of the unspoilt bushveld.
With six magnificent, luxury suites, Little Bush Camp represents an African masterpiece and reflects organic art in effortless harmony that is quintessentially 5-star elegance.
Each suite, with a private deck and sunken Jacuzzi allows for the illusion of being alone in the vast African bush. The pool area is just out of sight across the riverbed and an outdoor boma is the perfect setting for indulging in the finest safari cuisine.
Little Bush Camp is a link between Yesterday and Tomorrow, imparting an African spirit that is evident throughout. Each suite is air-conditioned, has mini-bar, tea & coffee making facilities, private spa bath on the deck, en-suite bathroom, indoor and outdoor shower and a private viewing deck overlooking the surrounding natural bush.
Celebrating the future of Tomorrow and the mineral wealth of our continent – this is the past, present and future. Allow your senses to drink in the quiet opulence of a world class masterpiece.
Earth Lodge is an artful and organic representation of South Africa’s vast mineral wealth, with metallic colours of these precious elements subtly reflected in the sophisticated furnishings around the lodge. Original, hand-crafted pieces of art adorn each of the 13 suites, including the iconic Amber Presidential suite. The suites glow with warmth and the glass-fronted bathrooms with indoor and al-fresco showers, lead to secluded private plunge pools with lounging chairs facing the bushveld allowing for an uninterrupted view for your pleasure.
The lodge features the Amani African Spa, cavernous wine cellar with an enviable South African wine collection, as well as the unique fire-pit lounge, where guests can enjoy the beauty of the African night sky around a roaring fire. During the day, guests can relax around the ‘day bar’ and recline on the comfortable day beds with a refreshing cocktail, and enjoy the sounds and sights of the surrounding natural bush. For the more energetic a ‘gym with a view’ is available for those who wish to maintain their fitness levels.
