5 Star Accommodation


Sophisticated yet simple, each suite has spectacular views over an extensive savannah grassland that teems with wildlife, as seen from the unique en-suite bathrooms and salas or from individual private plunge pools.

The Sabi Sand is famous for its big five and has the highest concentration of leopard in the world.
