You might never expect it, but deep in Africa’s heart lies a hub of warmth and luxury. Upon arrival at Sabi Sabi’s world-famous Bush Lodge, you are greeted with a lemon-scented towel and a smile. On your second visit, they’ll greet you by name. The very next thing to greet you will be the vast, untamed bush.

Sabi Sabi epitomises Africa’s magic and big game abounds, roaming freely through this unspoiled part of the ancient African continent. The reserve’s diversity of habitat and wildlife gives an excellent chance of close encounters with the ‘Big 5’ – elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard – as well as wild dog, cheetah and all species indigenous to the area.

Bush Lodge’s charm is evident from the outset. It isn’t simply the breathtaking surrounds. Bush Lodge’s secret is its people and the warm and vibrant atmosphere they generate around them.

Looking across unspoiled veld to a water hole, Bush Lodge’s two enormous, comfortable decks are ideally situated to view the hundreds of animals and birds resident at the Sabi Sabi. Glass fronted bathrooms in all suites allow uninterrupted views of the bush, and add to the feeling of wide open spaces. The lodge is a meeting place where friends old and new gather to share memories against a background of memorabilia and artefacts gathered from all over the African continent.

Tales from the bush are absorbed and then shared over a boma dinner under the stars that evening. New friends are made and experiences gathered here are treasured for a lifetime.
