Sabi Sands and Manyeleti – South Africa

A World-class safari destination

Within the confines of the world famous Kruger National Park, wildlife rules the land and it is here where you will find some of Africa’s most exclusive five-star rated private game reserves. Flanked on the unfenced north and north-western border of the Greater Kruger National Park is where Sabi Sands Game Reserve is located.

This protected landscape is South Africa’s oldest and as such, the mature and reposed character adds to the unforgettable experience that is Sabi Sands Game Reserve. The reserve boasts some of Africa’s most luxuriantly chic game lodges and throughout the years, international recognition such as the Diners Club Platinum Winelist Award, Best Hotel in the World and Best Game lodge in Southern Africa has confirmed the superiority that radiates from Sabi Sands.

World Class Safari Lodges

Sabi Sands and Manyeleti Game Reserves are all about exclusivity, African romance and wildlife. The safari lodges and camps in the private reserves are mostly in the middle to upper budget levels, with very high standards of service and facilities. Thatched roof Hemmingway styled cottages, luxury lodges, colonial dêcor and large viewing decks all offer unforgettable comfort within African landscape.


Advice from Safari Russ:

The area has a subtropical climate with hot and humid in summers and mildly humid and warm winters between October and March. Rain falls mainly during summer months with spectacular afternoon and evening thunderstorms. From April to September the area becomes dry and cooler

The game viewing experience

Sabi sands and Manyeleti is known as a Big Five game reserve. The experience of getting as close as you possibly can to one of Africa’s most feared mammals is death-defying and exhilarating in itself. Coupled with the bushveld grandeur that exudes from Sabi Sands and Manyeleti game reserves, we are sure that any expectation that you have ever imagined about an African safari will be to bypass.

End your day with an exquisite meal, surrounded by African bushveld while the fire’s blaze casts silhouettes of tribal dancers across sepia landscape as an African sun sets beneath the horizon.


  • "Greenlife Safaris has helped us plan three life changing trips through Southern Africa. What sets them apart is that they were by our side, just a call away and helped us with a few things like when we blew out 2 tires on the rental car out in the bush and when we left some valuables in a hotel safe."
