Our Big 5 Safari South Africa package features everything we love about safari: the best wildlife sightings, sumptuous accommodations, amazing food, and genuine hospitality. Enjoy an unrivaled safari experience in the one and only Sabi Sands, the mecca of 5-star African luxury.
Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve is considered one of the best safari destinations in all of Africa. Sharing an unfenced border with Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sands offers exceptional wildlife viewing with more privacy and more freedom to enjoy unique activities, including bush walks and nighttime game drives.
On this Big 5 Safari South Africa package, you’ll stay at some of our all-time favorite lodges: Savanna Private Game Reserve and the Dulini Collection. These beautiful properties immerse you in a deeply personal wildlife adventure: the quintessential safari experience for the sophisticated traveler.
Combine your Big 5 Safari South Africa package with wine tasting, beaches, Victoria Falls, and more—we’ll customize it to suit your individual tastes.
Get ready for a Big 5 safari adventure like no other! You’ll have the privilege of visiting the Sabi Sands, widely considered a top safari destination. The area shares an unfenced border with the famous Kruger National Park, so Big 5 game viewing is superb.
The Sabi Sands is especially well known for its abundance of leopards, which are quite difficult to spot in other areas. Your safari vehicles will carry a maximum of 6 passengers, and your expert guides will share their wealth of knowledge to unravel the intricate nuances of the African bush.
Day 1 – 2
A flight to Kruger and a short road transfer bring you to Savanna Private Game Reserve, your home for the next 2 nights. Your Luxury Suite has a bit of classic safari flair with its romantic canvas roof. The friendly staff will make you feel right at home during your stay.
Game drives take place in the early morning and in the evening, when the wildlife is at its most active. In between game drives, you’ll have plenty of time to relax at the gorgeous lodge, cool off in your private plunge pool, and indulge in delicious cuisine. Walking safaris are also available for a more intimate bush experience. In the evenings, enjoy one-of-a-kind dinners in truly special settings, including an iconic boma dinner.

Day 3 – 4 Continue your Sabi Sands adventure today. Depart on your morning game drive from Savanna; keep an eye out for cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, wild dogs, and other wildlife! Instead of returning to Savanna for lunch, you will be dropped off at your next accommodation: the beautiful Dulini Collection, also located in the Sabi Sands. Porters will transport your luggage for a seamless experience.
Here, you have a choice of 3 boutique safari lodges: the classic Dulini Lodge, the romantic Dulini River Lodge, or the ultra-luxurious Dulini Leadwood Lodge. Each offers its own distinct charm, while sharing the privacy and luxury that discerning travelers have come to expect from the Dulini name. The Dulini Collection
Day 5 Today marks the end of your spectacular adventure in the Sabi Sands. After your morning game drive and breakfast, a road transfer brings you to the Kruger airstrip.
