africa's leading safari lodge

July 2008

In addition to being hailed as one of the world's best in terms of service by readers of Travel + Leisure (June 2008 World Best Service Issue), Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve has been named as Africa's Leading Safari Lodge by the Africa World Travel Awards.  Referred to as the "Oscars of the global travel industry" by the Wall Street Journal, the World Travel Awards recognize excellence in the travel and tourism industry and are nominated by travel professionals from 167,000 tourism-related companies in more than 160 countries.

With four 5-Star lodges on its Sabi Sands reserve, Sabi Sabi has captivated guests for over 30 years with its unique blend of world class service, excellent game viewing, exceptional luxury accommodation and warm African hospitality.  Upgrades and innovations in recent years have been met with delight by guests and a string of accolades and awards*.  This has all been achieved while subscribing to Fair Trade** practices.

Sabi Sabi's four lodges reflect its 'Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow' philosophy with Yesterday depicted by the romantic, colonial-style Selati Camp, Today by the contemporary Bush Lodge and Little Bush Camp and Tomorrow by the ground-breaking Earth Lodge.  Each has its individual look and feel, decor style and ambience; but shares the same commitment to service excellence, African hospitality and outstanding levels of luxury and the world renowned Sabi Sands reserve which is situated in a recognised 'hot spot' of biodiversity which makes for an astonishing diversity of wildlife - including over 200 mammal and 300 bird species.  Unforgettable safaris are enjoyed in open Land Rovers with close encounters with the Big 5 a regular occurrence.

* Sabi Sabi has won seven ASATA/Diners Club awards for Best Game Lodge, and been named one of the world's top ten destinations in Conde Naste Traveler, Tatler and Travel + Leisure, and has won a host of other awards including several from AA Travel Guides and an Imvelo Award for responsible tourism.

**  Sabi Sabi was the first 5-Star Game Reserve in the world to receive a Fair Trade in Tourism accreditation.
