sabi sabi in top 5
Discerning travellers from around the world have voted Sabi Sabi in the Top Five destinations in Africa and the Middle East, and the Top 35 in the world.
Travel and Leisure Magazine - based in the U.S. - published its 2005 Travel Awards last month, and confirmed Sabi Sabi's position as one of the world's best destinations.
The acknowledgement from such an influential publication, says Sabi Sabi Managing Director, Patrick Shorten, shows that the company's investment over the past several years has paid off. "Since opening Earth Lodge in 2001, we have also upgraded and refurbished Bush Lodge and Selati Camp, bringing them up to five star plus standard and have recently purchased Londolozi's Safari Camp, which Sabi Sabi will officially take over in March next year as an extension of Bush Lodge, called 'Little Bush Camp'.
"These initiatives have seen Sabi Sabi confirm its position as a destination that offers luxury accommodation, an excellent safari experience and true African hospitality.
Sabi Sabi comprises three unique lodges, each with its own identity yet sharing a trademark of warm hospitality and spectacular game viewing experience.
Selati Camp is a small, intimate camp set on the banks of the Msuthlu River and reflecting a bygone era. Built and decorated in a late 1800's Colonial style, Selati Camp is lit by lamps and exudes romance and luxury.
Bush Lodge (recently totally refurbished) is a warm and vibrant meeting place for friends and families. Huge viewing decks overlook a waterhole and suites all look out onto the unspoiled bush.
Earth Lodge breaks the mould of traditional game lodges in terms of design, layout and features, yet maintains the essence of warmth, hospitality and exceptional game viewing synonymous with the Sabi Sabi brand. Its organic architecture, unadorned finish, natural fabrics and furnishings and creative use of space and light combine to create a lodge that is both luxurious and at one with the environment.
"This recognition from Travel and Leisure is confirmation that Sabi Sabi is indeed a world class destination," concludes Shorten.
