Sabi Sand is South Africa's oldest and most exclusive private game reserve. It spans 65,000 hectares and shares a 50 km unfenced border with Kruger National Park. It's the birthplace of sustainable wildlife tourism in South Africa and has only ever been a wilderness area. It's part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, the largest conservation area in Southern Africa. Sabi Sand Game Reserve is renowned for its exceptional leopard sightings and up-close wildlife encounters. The reserve's wildlife checklist counts more than 500 bird species and over 140 kinds of animals. It's home to all of the African big five - lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros - and several endangered species - wild dog, honey badgers, oxpeckers, ground hornbill, and several species of bats. Sabi Sand's varied landscape includes riverine forest, acacia groves, grasslands, and, of course, bush savanna. Termite mounds are one of its most distinctive features. The Sabie and Sand rivers provide it with a source of water. What's more, the accommodation at Sabi Sand ranges from affordable to luxury and many of the reserve's safari lodges and camps welcome children.
