The Sabi Sands Game Reserve is undoubtedly the most exclusive private wildlife reserve in South Africa and is located on the south-west corner of the Kruger National Park, forming part of the Greater Kruger Park. No restricting fences exist between the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sands so the animals can therefore roam freely across the Kruger into the Sabi Sands reserve and vice versa. Within the reserve there are a number of accommodation options from luxury lodges to tented camps offering a variety of experiences from spa treatments and fine dining to safari drives and walking safaris.
