The Sabi Sands game reserve is teeming with some of Africa’s best known wildlife. It is a luxurious private reserve situated inside the Kruger National Park, and has an unparalleled mixture of natural biodiversity and modern hospitality.
The park was named after the Sabie River on its southern boundary and the Sand river which flows through it. With hot and wet conditions ranging from November to April and cold, and dry conditions from May to October the weather change between seasons can be quite dramatic, but you will find that there is never a bad time to visit this gorgeous reserve.
The reserve is the natural home of the famous Big-5, and professional 4×4 tours day or night ensure that you will be getting up and personal with these majestic beasts.
The fact that Sabi Sands is a private Game Reserve really makes the experience that much more enjoyable. There are no overcrowded tour cars and secluded, private accommodations. Locations such as Thornybush Game Lodge offer the best in 5 Star treatment, with all the trimmings needed for a sensational stay.
When taking a trip to this safari capital, be careful not to overpack. The camps and lodges are very accomodating, all you need to worry about is comfortable clothing and some high grade sunscreen. Remember though that the nights get especially cold, and when going on a guided night tour you might be in need of some warm layers.
Although it is not a widespread concern in this general area, it’s always good to have an antimalarial kit on hand to avoid any chance of infection.
