Explore the bush at night

With your experienced game ranger and tracker as your guides, you can experience the thrill of a game drive at night and spot some of the smaller and shyer nocturnal creatures of the dark. You also gain the freedom to go off-road and enjoy the best predator sightings possible.

Customised habitat management

As a private reserve, we have the autonomy to manage our habitat as necessary. Our approach – based on extensive research, observation and experience – is one of minimal interference. Mother Nature knows best and our job is to help her maintain a natural ecosystem that supports her flora and fauna.

Protecting your safety and that of the animals

As an independent concern, we have the flexibility to structure our own safety protocols and anti-poaching efforts, which impacts how we interact with the animals. We believe that mutual respect fosters trust, which in turn allows for better, safer and more intimate sightings.

Our commitment to conservation

How we take care of our precious piece of Africa

Our dual conservation philosophy is to be a living example of a business that effectively links tourism with conservation and the community, and secondly, to protect South Africa’s rapidly dwindling wilderness areas.

Together with qualified ecological consultants, our year-round habitat management programme includes controlled burns, waterhole rotation, road maintenance, soil erosion control, alien plant control and most importantly, anti-poaching.

Over and above the Sabie Game Reserve conservation units, we have dedicated anti-poaching units to bolster the safety of our animals.
