  • Kruger Park.

    Memorable and authentic.

    We suggest 3 to 4 nights.

    Just do it. 

  • Welcome to a wonderfully wild world where elephants can empty your pool
    while you are enjoying gourmet dinners in open air boma's around blazing fires.
  • Sabi Sand (and many other reserves - see map below) forms part of Kruger Park
    but NO public driving is allowed here as all lodges offer day and night-time game drives
    in open game viewing vehicles with professional rangers and experienced trackers.
  • Magnificent photo opportunities abound as spotting the big 5 is almost guaranteed.
    And, of course, Sabi Sand is world renowned for its leopard sightings.
  • Safari lodge rates include all meals and 2 daily guided game drives
  • go on - let the Out in Africa safari begin,,,
