For first time safari goers the main goal is mostly to experience as much of the African bush as possible in a short space of time. Which makes perfect sense as who wouldn’t like to see the Big 5 on a trip to Africa and tick as many boxes as you can? This phenomena is […]

wild dogs

Not often one of the animals on an international traveller’s checklist. Not as regal as a male lion, or as iconic as a large bull elephant wandering across the African plains. In fact we probably get 10 times more requests to see giraffe and zebra than the African Wild Dog. Why? I put this down […]

For most of us rangers, being in the bush is a very definite choice. We have chosen long hours, variable work, distance from family and loved ones, long term planning and simplicity of living, all in exchange for a faith that one day there will be THAT sighting that ignites a passion within us with […]

I have officially been given my Sabi Sabi epilates! It has been a tough three and a half months of training but it all has been worth it in the end. I have officially started conducting safaris and I must say it hasn’t been anything short of spectacular. My first guests that I drove were […]

The first week back at Sabi Sabi has been interesting after leave, there are no dull days when you work in the African bush. I have just arrived back at Sabi Sabi after a very nice two week leave which I spent with friends and family. Going on leave is a necessary part of the […]

it’s all about the leopards (part 1)

Thumbnail image for it’s all about the leopards (part 1) by Sabi Sabi January 27, 2015

Since I was young I have been going to the Kruger National Park about 2-3 times a year. I’ve seen lions countless times, but the animal that has eluded me the most was the leopard. I can only recall seeing leopard about four times. This all changed since I started working at Sabi Sabi. Game […]
