Catch a flight from Johannesburg's O.R. Tambo International Airport to a bush airstrip in Sabi Sands South, Mpumalanga. Upon arrival, a representative will take you on a short game drive to Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge, adjacent to the Kruger National Park. After settling in to the Amber Suite, you will have time to explore the lodge's facilities before having lunch and then embarking on a game viewing activity.
An afternoon game drive in a specialized safari vehicle is led by an experienced guide and tracker, trained to lead safari-goers to exhilarating wildlife sightings, some of which may be of the Big Five. The drives extend into the night and free-roaming nocturnal creatures can be spotted.
On return to the lodge, you will be seated for a culinary feast. Your stay at this South Africa safari lodge will grant you the service of a private butler. Enjoy the privacy of your own plunge pool and patio or relax in a stargazing session around a blazing campfire before enjoying an early night's rest.
After an early morning wakeup call and a cup of coffee or tea before departing on a morning game viewing activity. Driving in the bush before sunrise is an opportune time to view game as the bush becomes active while it's still cool. Wildlife sightings might include elephant, zebra and lion. After the 3-hour game drive, return to the lodge for breakfast which is followed by a guided walking safari.
Your ranger will introduce you to the smaller fauna and flora wonders of the bush and share some animal tracking techniques with you. While exploring the bush on foot, be sure to keep a lookout for the diverse species of resident and migrant birds. Alternatively, go on a cultural visit to the local Shangaan community.
Return to the lodge for lunch and some free time in which you can enjoy a siesta or a swim before attending afternoon teatime. Your afternoon game drive departs after you've enjoyed some tea and snacks, and stops a little later in a remote part of the bush for sundowners. At night, the bush becomes increasingly active with predators on the prowl and the nocturnal creatures, such as genets and African wild cats, allow safari-goers to get a glimpse of them.
The Amani Spa at the lodge offers a menu of optional classic and traditional African wellness treatments by qualified therapists. There are single and double treatment rooms, ideal for both alone-time and quality time with your significant other.
Dining at the lodge is a magical affair, offering Asian inspired African dishes in an alfresco setting.

The outdoor boma invites you to a traditional African celebration, surrounding by the splendour of the wild, while the indoor dining area creates a more elegant ambience.
