memories to last a lifetime
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you most profoundly for an unforgettable stay at Sabi Sabi that has provided us with a lifetime of memories!
Given the long journey to South Africa for us, like most guests, we were hoping that Sabi Sabi's reputation for excellent game viewing would hold for us, and we were not disappointed in the least. We managed to see all the "Big Five", along with so many other beautiful creatures (cheetah, zebra, giraffe, monkey to name a few), thanks to the great teamwork of the rangers and spotters, along with Sabi's superb location open to the Kruger Park.
Our ranger Niamph is an amazing asset to your lodge, as she provided excellent knowledge of all the animals we spotted, along with birds, vegetation and even constellations during the night drives. She made it so much more than merely a viewing exercise, and much more of an educational, insightful and meaningful experience. She was absolutely a pleasure to be around, and an excellent, friendly hostess all during our stay.
Our room was amazing. We loved how big it felt, like having our own apartment or townhome the in the bushveld - the outdoor shower, the double sinks, the seating area, the bed with netting, etc. Beautiful touch with the sherry waiting in the room.
We took advantage of the newly offered community tour, and came away with a truly enriching and rewarding experience. Hopefully this is something that the lodge will continue to promote, as it is a wonderful way to experience the African people and culture outside the confines of the lodge/hotel setting. Kudos to you in that all proceeds go back to the village.
The food prepared by Ivan was absolutely amazing, with wonderful variety prepared perfectly in the fantastic settijg of the boma, and service provided by our kind waitress and the barman in the evenings was superb.
We came to celebrate our 10th Anniversary, and we thank you for sending us a bottle of complimentary champagne, which gave an extra special touch to our stay.
So thank you again for making this such an extraordinary trip for us. Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge is an amazing place that has given us unforgettable shared memories to last a lifetime.
