Sabi Sand Nature Reserve, Kruger National Park
Within the 60,000 ha/150,000ac of the Sabi Sand reserve are a number of game lodges which offer not only marvelous opportunities of seeing wild life close-up but also a stimulating mix of adventure and relaxation.
Mala Mala Reserve
The Mala Mala Reserve, which is part of the Sabi Sabi reserve, is only a few minutes' drive from Londolozi. It is the oldest and most exclusive private camp in the lowveld, with accommodation for up to 50 visitors in tastefully appointed bungalows. The area round Mala Mala, on the Sand River, is well stocked with game (leopards, lions, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes).In the south of the Mala Mala reserve is Kirkman's Camp. From the verandas of the bungalows there are fine views of the river and surrounding area. The central point of the camp is an old farmhouse, furnished in the style of the 1920s, with a recreation room and a restaurant.Harry's Camp has accommodation for 16 visitors in typical Ndebele cottages.
Londolozi Game Reserve
Londolozi Game Reserve, in the center of the Sabi Sand reserve, is one of the best known tourist attractions in the lowveld, which has several times won the title, awarded by South African travel agencies, of ''best game lodge of the year''. Accommodation is available in three camps: Tree Camp, with luxurious accommodation for small parties of 2-8 people; Bush Camp, accommodating up to 8 people in local-style stone cottages; and Main Camp, with accommodation for 24 people in luxury chalets with views of the luxuriant vegetation along the river.
Inyati Game Lodge
Inyati Game Lodge, beautifully situated on the Sand River, with accommodation for 20 visitors, is noted for its individual attention to its guests and its excellently organized game drives. When booking accommodation here you should ask for a room in one of the larger straw-roofed chalets: there are also smaller double rooms which are comfortable enough but not luxurious.
Sabi Sabi Game Lodge
The territory of the Sabi Sabi Game Lodge lies on the Sabie River, the haunt of numerous hippopotamuses and crocodiles. Sabi Sabi has won a great reputation in recent years for its hospitality and high standard of service. Also within this area is the Bush Lodge, situated amid typical lowveld vegetation, with 24 comfortable straw-roofed chalets. River Lodge has 20 straw-roofed rondavels.
