Walking Wild in the Sabi Sand, South Africa

July 15 2015


Savanna Lodge - An exclusive five-star lodge situated in the internationally famous Sabi Sand Reserve, Savanna offers outstanding game viewing, personalised service and luxurious accommodation to a limited number of discerning guests. The lodge has nine magnificent suites, seven of which have tented roofs above draped ceilings blending the elegance of a by-gone colonial era with all the convenience of modern facilities.

Dulini Lodge - Spread under a leafy canopy of ebony trees, Dulini Lodges six spacious stone cottages grace the banks of the Mabrak River in the western part of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. With only 12 guests, one feels instantly at home in this quiet retreat. The beautifully appointed suites boast plunge pools, shady decks and classic interiors that celebrate the signature style of the Reserve. From the privacy of their own plunge pools, guests enjoy watching game explore the dry riverbed just a few metres away.

Experience the chance of getting up close to fauna, flora, birdlife and wildlife. Whilst the pace will be leisurely and guests do not need to be super fit, the experience will take approximately 6 hours including a light bush breakfast being served around the 8km point. Here, should the guests wish to opt out and be transferred the remainder of the way, they may do so.

The experience is guaranteed to fascinate and excite guests who will be exploring areas rarely visited by vehicles. Guests will be walking through this big game environment within the safe guidance of our specially trained rangers and trackers and will have the chance to marvel at some of the smaller, but no less impressive creatures which can only be fully appreciated when travelling through the bush on foot.

Guests will need to spend a minimum of 2 nights at each lodge in order to partake on this walking adventure. Combined, these camps highlight the very best that the Sabi Sand can offer, going far beyond the luxurious accommodation – the exceptional guiding and breath taking walk will get guests closer to nature and an experience that will never be forgotten. Both lodges boast exceptionally high standards of luxury and service, however each has its own unique atmosphere and identity allowing for two totally different experiences within the Sabi Sand Reserve.
