Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge

Game Lodge, Kruger


With over 35 years of safari history, this private game reserve offers wild-life seekers some of the best Big Five viewing in Africa, along with superlative accommodation and the finest safari cuisine.   Based in the South West of the Sabi Sand Reserve means that you are within quick and easy reach of Kruger Mpumalanga and Skukuza airport.   The lodge also has its own private landing strip for those wishing to beat the baggage claim blues.

The Bush Lodge is a lesson in attentive luxury accommodation on the inside and gorgeous surroundings on the outside. Although modern in its architecture and layout, Bush Loge is traditional in its refinement and luxury, harking back to the days of true African safaris – a highlight on any South African holiday.

With a 35-year old heritage this lodge showcases gorgeous décor and furniture collected over the years from every corner of the African continent – making this private lodge a true celebration of African culture and natural history.

Mirroring its surroundings, space is one thing that the Bush Lodge has plenty of. Encouraging guests to really find their own corner of nature in which to relax and unwind in.


Bush Lodge is home to 25 beautiful suites. Included in this list of these luxurious suites are two luxury two-bedroom Luxury Villas as well as the Mandleve Presidential Suite. All three of which boast incredible and expansive views of the African Bushveld that surrounds them.

Those lucky enough to be staying in the suite and villas will enjoy the privacy of their own pool and patio that overlooks a watering hole. Those staying in the other luxury suites will be spoilt with only the finest linens, ensuite bathrooms and meticulous attention to detail from all staff, at any time of day.


There are plenty of ways to fill your time at the Bush Lodge after a day of exciting Big Five viewing. Guests can relax in the lounge over a cocktail with colours that match the African sunset before them. Or they can choose to cool down in the pool while overlooking the Msuthlu riverbed.

Those who enjoy a bit of natural therapy can indulge in the many treatments on offer at the Amani Spa which uses all-African therapies and only the best beauty products. Proving that the Bush Lodge really is a lesson in African safari refinement

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge Reviews

A spectacular 2 weeks in South Africa

We are just back from a spectacular 2 weeks in South Africa. We took our 8 year old son back having visited on our own 10 years ago and we all had one of the best holidays. We wanted our son to see "the real Africa" at the same time as doing the usual touristy things (including a very patient son as we toured the beautiful winelands). Best Of South Africa Travel helped us plan our holiday to cover off exactly what we felt we wanted but gave really great advice for other ideas so we could get the most out of the holiday (Mpumalanga). We managed to tick off all the boxes as well as see the Big 5 (including rare cheetah and wild dog sitings!) on a wonderful safari in the Sabi Sands.
