Sabi Sands Game Reserve is located adjacent to the Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga. Its placement and vast, unfenced terrain allows wildlife to freely roam from the Kruger to Sabi Sands. Game viewing is guaranteed to be extraordinary. The famous Big 5 can also be seen – the secretive leopard in particular.

Its natural expanse, various mammals and more than 300 bird species make Sabi Sands the ultimate safari, photographic safari and bird watcher experience. The reserve offers a variety of lodges that promises to suit the needs of any wildlife enthusiast - from affordable to luxurious. The reserve’s exclusivity is ensured by not being open to day visitors, nor allowing driving unaccompanied by a ranger.

Sabi Sands Game Reserve promises the quintessential safari experience to its visitors. It can be accessed via scheduled shuttle flights from Johannesburg or by road.
