Day 1 – Sabi Sand
Today you will fly from the Johannesburg International Airport (OR Tambo International) directly into the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, arriving in time for lunch and your afternoon/evening game drive. You will overnight at our preferred lodge in this reserve. The Sabi Sand Reserve is the birthplace of sustainable wildlife tourism in Southern Africa, and is the oldest of all the private reserves in South Africa. It has only ever been a wilderness area and is home to a vast wildlife population, including The Big Five, and a number of endangered species too. Flanking the Kruger National Park, animals pass unhindered between the reserves. The Sabi Sand Reserve is part of the largest conservation area in Southern Africa
Day 2, 3, – Sabi Sand
(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
The next two days will be spent in following the individual lodges’ programme. Although this may differ slightly from lodge to lodge, the programme is usually this: You are woken early (this depends on time of year), and offered some light refreshment, (tea/coffee/juice and something light to eat) before embarking on the morning game drive. Midway through the drive some more light refreshment is again offered, and at the conclusion of the morning drive you return to the lodge for breakfast. After breakfast you usually have a choice of going on a walk with an armed ranger or relaxing at the pool, reading or whatever. Lunch is then offered and again in the afternoon tea/coffee/juice and cake is enjoyed before commencing the afternoon/evening drive. Midway through this drive a sundowner stop is made to enjoy some drinks and snacks, before continuing on the drive, the latter being with the aid of a spotlight to pick up on the nocturnal species. Then its back to the lodge to enjoy dinner and drinks before retiring for some well earned sleep. The accommodation is of a 4 and 5-star standard and all meals that are offered are of top quality.
