new lodge for sabi
Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve has added a new lodge to their existing three lodges by acquiring Londolozi’s Safari Lodge. Dave Varty, owner of Londolozi, commented “As part of consolidating our land in the heart of the Sabi Sand Wildtuin the owners of Londolozi agreed to sell this lodge to Sabi Sabi. It is located 20 kilometres to the south of our core traversing area and will fit well into the Sabi Sabi operations. This new rationalisation arrangement will result in greater exclusivity in both reserves”.
The beautiful six-suite luxury lodge will be handed over to Sabi Sabi on 1 March 2006, but Sabi Sabi is already receiving forward bookings. The lodge will be renamed “Little Bush Camp” and will complement Sabi Sabi’s existing Bush Lodge, which has a similar historical African ambience and warm, homely atmosphere.
Commenting on the move, Sabi Sabi managing director, Patrick Shorten, said : “Given the proximity of Little Bush Camp to our existing lodges, it is an ideal transaction, and the additional land will enhance our extensive traversing area. We are very excited to add this beautiful little gem to our existing successful portfolio of Earth Lodge, Selati Camp and Bush Lodge”.
Little Bush Camp is situated in the shade of indigenous riverine trees on a dry riverbed, and has an intimate, rustic feel that blends with the 5-Star accommodation and absolute luxury. The lodge features air-conditioned double suites, en-suite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers and private viewing decks. Thatched roofs, draped mosquito nets and wooden and stone finishes complete the picture and make for the perfect private escape for families and small corporate incentives.
The habitat has been well managed over the past 20 years and features open areas of bush that make for excellent cheetah and white Rhino sightings as well as being ideal for viewing plains game such as zebra and wildebeest.
