Offering an outdoor pool, Nkorho Bush Lodge is set in Sabi Sand Game Reserve overlooking the African plain. The lodge has stylishly thatched chalets and a traditional Boma. Wow! Amazing place and amazing staff. The room: very comfortable, nice bathroom and a very cool outdoor private shower! Game drives: I know it’s sometimes more luck, but we saw so many animals it’s crazy!! We had Call as our ranger and Chris as our tracker- they were so nice, and it really felt like they are taking the extra mile to help us see more animals. The place: there’s a waterhole/dam near camp and it brings a nice amount of animals. Food: great food! Very tasty. You will not be hungry here (we actually felt like we were over fed haha). We didn’t go on any bushwalks because we saw so many animals on the drive and preferred to drive a bit more than to walk.
Situated in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park, Elephant Plains Game Lodge features an outdoor pool, a spa, and luxury accommodations.

Games were aldo incredible with lots of different animals and a very knowlegable ranger.
Offering an outdoor pool and a restaurant, Idube Game Reserve is located in Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Free WiFi access is available in this lodge. The comfort of the lodge and property was impressionable. The hospitality of the staff and knowledge of our ranger and guide were outstanding.
Take in the African plains at Lion Sands Private Game Reserve at the heat of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Modern with a splash of Africa interiors, very comfortable. Great staff and great safari drives. The spa massage was a good compliment after a few hours of off road driving!
Simbambili Lodge is located in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. This romantic hideaway offers a Moroccan-style experience, privately tucked away in the sweeping Savannah grassland. Everything exceeded our expectations. The staff felt like family after 3 nights. I cried when we left! Can’t wait to return; this is the most special place on earth. Also - they’ve recently undergone a renovation, so the rooms and shared places look a million times better than the photos.
Located in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve home of the ‘Big Five’, Inyati Game Lodge offers an outdoor swimming pool, restaurant and bar. Inyati is located on the scenic banks of the Sand River. Good service, Clean and perfect game drive. Thank you go George our guide and Solly the tracker who had been informative and patience so we got to see some animals interaction during our game drive. Although we only stayed for 2 days but it was a great experience.
Located 0.6 mi from the Paul Kruger Gate to the Kruger National Park, Burchell's Bush Lodge offers accommodations 1148 feet from the banks of the Sabie River. This place was fantastic from start to finish. The location is perfect. The premises are great.
My favourite Safari experience in South Africa was in Madikwe . But if you must go to Kruger - or even better "the greater Kruger" Sabi Sands is one of the best private reserves. Very well organized and very well kept, with a good range of Lodge options to choose from (but most of which are incredibly expensive) , great game viewings (no black rhinos, though) and beautiful landscape - more to the "jungle" style than to the savannah one.
This is an excellent game reserve. We have been there three times and have seen every animal we wanted to see including wild or painted dogs and cheetahs. There are beautiful lodges in this reserve. Transportation from lodge to lodge or from airport can be easily arrange with shuttle service or small air planes.
I sat at the lodge on my first evening and was able to observe a leopard for about 2.5 hours - kill was up a tree near the Inyati Lodge area and I had the most fantastic clear view of the leopard lazing around and snacking...So sat on the deck with cup of tea and camera just watching.....bliss! The reserve itself was teeming with wildlife and every game drive gave a wonderful showing - seeing leopards, white rhino, wild dogs every drive (I went on 5). Other animals are also prolific - observed lion and cubs (so cute!!), elephant herds, giraffe, zebra, wildebeast, buffalo, hippo, warthog, mongoose, honey badger, crocodile, kudo, impala, and the list goes on and on. The great thing about the reserve is that the guides will go off road to get closer to the animals for better viewing - but they will not get so close as to disturb or change their behaviour! They all talk to each other so once someone spots something of interest they let each other know - and access is then controlled - so you won't have 20 vehicles in the one spot - usually only 2 vehicles at any one time by an animal - each vehicle will take a turn then move on letting the next one come along - very well organised.
when going to any lodge in Kruger, make sure what gate to the park you should enter from to reach the lodge because each lodge has a specific gate(s), so no matter what Google maps tells you, ask the lodge first which gate!
