Sabi Sabi epitomises Africa’s magic, big game abounds, roaming freely through this unspoiled part of the African continent. The reserve is blessed with a great biodiversity of habitat and wildlife giving an excellent chance of close encounters with the ‘Big 5’ – Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard – as well as the rare Wild Dog and Cheetah, and hundreds of species of other game. With over 300 bird species, the reserve is a birdwatcher’s delight.

Accompanied by highly trained rangers and Shangaan trackers, visitors experience African’s unique wildlife in open game vehicles by day and night providing an unforgettable and truly enriching safari experience.

Rangers and trackers take great care not to drive through sensitive ecological areas and ensure that no protected or endangered fauna and flora are disturbed during the off-road game tracking. For environmental reasons, off-road driving is restricted to the Big 5 as well as the highly endangered Wild Dog and Cheetah species only. Similarly for environmental reasons during periods of heavy rain the rangers do not conduct any off-road driving. Rangers will often track wildlife on foot before leaving the road to afford guests a closer view.

Sabi Sabi has also implemented a policy of limiting the number of vehicles in any game sighting, again to minimise the impact on the animals and birds on the reserve as well as to enhance each guest’s game viewing experience.

At night, only nocturnal animals are tracked and viewed with spotlights, with diurnal animals and birds being left alone.

Animals and birds are left to move freely within the reserve as they have done for centuries – unfenced and undisturbed. All sightings are assessed by the rangers as to animal behaviour and reaction to the vehicle.
