Africa’s Sabi Sands For The Best Luxury Safari Experience


South Africa is positively booming at the moment! You can currently take a luxury South Africa holiday for much less than you could do anywhere else in Africa. South Africa has so much variety, which makes it an incredibly popular destination. In one day you can go from sipping the best wine in the world, to taking a game drive in one of the best game viewing areas in Africa, the Sabi Sands.

You can visit the Indian Ocean and Atlantic coastlines and also touch on the Kalahari in the North. There is so much here it’s hard to know where to start but the fantastic thing about South Africa holidays at the moment is that you can go for longer for less due to the heavenly exchange rate.

The Sabi Sands area of the Kruger National Park is perhaps the most famous of the South Africa safari areas and we’re not surprised. This is by far the best place in Africa to see the elusive leopard, in fact you are more than likely to see at least one a day here, and your guide will know the history and family tree of that leopard which makes the whole thing even more exciting (if that’s possible!).

The Sabi Sands is very exclusive and made up of only the most luxurious and private safari lodges. Londolozi was one of the first camps to set up in this area and they have a few wonderful camps of varying degrees. Pioneer Camp is heaven – decorated in the style of the original explorer camps. Their private Granite Suites are also something to be marveled at and provide the ultimate exclusive Sabi Sands safari getaway.

The accommodations are pure luxury but surrounded by nature on all sides. It doesn’t get much better than this!

Chitwa Chitwa is very popular not least because of their stay four pay three, but also because of their friendly staff and location overlooking the waterhole, which is often frequented by all species of wildlife. Nottens is fantastic for those not wanting to break the bank but you must book this early since it is full almost a year in advance.

You can also get experience luxury right in the middle of the natural African bush!


The Sabi Sands is easily reachable from Johannesburg or Cape Town and the game viewing is some of the best in Africa, with some exceptional guides also being based in this area. They are very strict on the number of vehicles around each sighting, which makes for exclusive and peaceful game viewing, often it will only be your vehicle and guide. This is one of the world’s ultimate wildlife viewing destinations.
