Safaris in the Sabi Sand Reserve

Morning Game Drives

An early morning wake-up call is followed by a journey through the magic of the African sunrise. Bushveld inhabitants will also be waking up for the day, or settling down to laze in the shade after a hard night’s hunting.

An experienced field guide will take you through the reserve in specially equipped game drive vehicles to make the most of the finest game viewing opportunities. Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant, Antelope and more will be spotted among the gorgeous thorn and Marula trees.

Early mornings are an ideal time to watch Africa’s magnificent animals in their natural habitat, birds and mammals are out at this time of day to gather food and drink water. You will stop for tea, coffee and rusks during your morning drive.

Evening Game Drives

Shortly after your arrival at Cheetah Plains, after afternoon tea and refreshments, you’ll be taken on the first of your two daily game drives. Go on a personalised journey with your professional field guide to learn and see things you never thought possible.

Setting out into the bushveld in the late afternoon is the ideal time to spot the predators that prowl the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Leopard & Lion emerge in the early evening to drink water or rest before the night’s hunt.

As part of our concession rights, only two commercial safari vehicles are allowed in the shared areas of the reserve at any given time. You’re guaranteed exclusivity as you go on safari through Cheetah Plains and the surrounding area, giving you the added privilege of peace, quiet and undisturbed wildlife.

Just before sunset you’ll disembark for a sundowner allowing you to savour and soak in a dramatic, inspiring African sunset.
