For over 4 decades, Sabi Sabi has been refining the balance of tourism, conservation and community. Take a tour and learn how these visits make a meaningful contribution to improving the lives of many.
Discover a different way of life

Catch a glimpse of African culture
A heartwarming visit filled with insights, learning and laughter
Providing meaningful and sustainable support
Our relationship with our surrounding communities spans more than 40 years
Motivated by genuine care
Right from the start, Sabi Sabi has formed a close relationship with our neighbours. We genuinely want them to shine and lend our support by providing jobs on our reserve and procuring services from local businesses in addition to investing in education and development programmes.
Our dedicated Community Liaison Officer hails from the area, is passionate about helping others thrive, and understands the challenges villages face and how best to solve them. His role is to actively drive the projects we support and balance the art of giving a hand up instead of a handout.
Leave a piece of your heart in Africa
The community tours are a paid-for activity and the funds raised are managed via our Sabi Sabi Foundation to make sure that it supports development programmes and projects that will directly benefit the long-term wellbeing of those who live in our neighbouring villages.
In addition to the tour fee, everyone is invited to donate to the Foundation, so that our neighbours can not only survive, but thrive.
Experiences to remember forever
Whether it’s ticking off your birding list, keeping up with a pack of Wild African dogs on the hunt, exploring the bush on foot, or mastering the perfect sunset photograph – every adventure is one you will cherish.
