Away from the noise of the vehicle you’ll feel each of your senses come alive. The scent of wild sage on a warm summer’s breeze. The crack of dry Tamboti branches underfoot. The alarm call of an impala herd. Perhaps the thrill of sighting elephants on foot.
Guided Bush Walks
BUSH WALKS OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE TRULY IMMERSED IN THE BIG FIVE WILDERNESS OF THE SABI SAND NATURE RESERVE.

The length of each bush walk can be tailored according to guest fitness, and usually take place in the cool of the morning. Bush walks are safely led by armed field guides, certified and accredited to lead walking safaris in a Big Five reserve.

 

Sturdy shoes and long trousers are recommended for bush walks. Regrettably, for safety reasons, children below the age of 12 are not able to participate.  

Honeymooners are indulged to lavish hospitality including romantic private dinners, sunset cocktails and couples massages in the privacy of your suite.

The luxurious suites at each lodge offer the ultimate privacy of a personal, heated plunge pool on a private deck with lavish sun loungers and outdoor shower.
