Spellbound on safarion Aug 01, 2018
The unspoilt African bushveld – beautiful and endless – from the window of an aircraft, is a sight to behold. Even more so when sharing this thrilling arrival at the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve with someone you love. Spending time close to nature in the company of your significant other, makes for a memorable mini-moon (a quick getaway for newlyweds whose schedules don’t allow for an extended trip), a luxury honeymoon or the opportunity to ignite or reaffirm a close bond.
Sabi Sabi is set in a magical location where romance seemingly sweeps you away. Total privacy, candle-lit dinners, secluded heated spa baths and nature at its magnificent best add to the allure of our award winning*, luxury lodges. Africa’s natural rhythm restores and resets – providing a sense of balance – and our Amani Spas are the perfect hideout to find this equilibrium.
Our Royal Romance Fly In Packages allows couples to create their own African journey including 4 luxurious nights as well as a range of superbly indulgent spa treatments. Starting with an Airlink flight from Cape Town International to Skukuza airport, or vice versa, your safari adventure begins immediately as you are met by one of our Sabi Sabi rangers in an open vehicle. Guests are spoiled for choice with Sabi Sabi’s four 5-star luxury lodges where four nights of luxury accommodation are included in the Royal Romance Package. Selati Camp, a lodge designed with romance in mind – newly refurbished suites that evoke the nostalgia of a bygone steam train era; Bush Lodge with its vibrant African atmosphere and luxurious suites, overlooks a busy waterhole;. Little Bush Camp offers privacy and seclusion, accommodating only six couples – each glorious suite boasting a spa bath on its raised private deck; and finally, Earth Lodge, an architectural masterpiece with opulent suites each with a private plunge pool – mirroring the mineral wealth of South Africa.
Amani Spa, a haven of tranquillity, offers couples making use of the Royal Romance Package a 2.5-hour spa sojourn, with a choice of treatments such as the delectable Amani Bush Bath and a 90-minute African Rungu massage, which utilises African Warrior sticks bringing relief to tired muscles. Or choose a Signature Treatment of your choice. Couples can together unwind and reconnect in complete harmony with nature.
Synonymous with unforgettable experiences and effortless hospitality, Sabi Sabi time and again surprises our guests with impromptu treats such as champagne on ice, a petal-strewn suite or maybe a candle-lit bubble bath. Expressing your commitment with a marriage proposal under the vast star-studded African sky or promising to love one another forever in an extraordinary bushveld wedding ceremony, Sabi Sabi will ensure a life time of special memories.
May the love that is shared at Sabi Sabi be as beautiful and endless as our spellbinding surroundings.
