south african tourist venues rate in prestigious top 20 service award worldwide
"If ever there were doubts about South Africa's capability to offer world class service to guests visiting from all over the globe - take a look at the latest Best Service Awards voted by discerning readers of Travel & Leisure magazine in the USA", says Jacques Smit, director of Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve.
For a third consecutive year, Sabi Sabi has ranked high in this category being voted 4th worldwide and 2nd in Africa and the Middle East. Other South African venues which feature in the top 20 include Bushman's Kloof, Royal Malewane, The Saxon Hotel and Singita - a close neighbour of Sabi Sabi in the world-renowned Sabi Sand Wildtuin. This list speaks volumes for the high level of service in South Africa and the friendliness and welcoming hospitality we offer.
At Sabi Sabi we strive to offer a luxury 'home in the bush' to guests from all over the world. The genuinely warm service by our dedicated staff, the majority of whom hail from the nearby villages and understand the importance of linking local communities with conservation and tourism, has undoubtedly been a major factor in consistently earning us a leading position. Their innate connection to the reserve and surrounding environment enables them to share unique local knowledge and wisdom with guests, while extending a warm African welcome to everyone who visits.
"Service levels in South Africa will be in the spotlight in the next few months as we prepare for the largest sporting event ever to be hosted on our soil."
