Abundant wildlife roams freely between South Africa’s flagship Kruger National Park and the vast wilderness of Sabi Sand, making this 160,000-acre private reserve one of Africa’s best places to spot the famous Big Five: lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino and leopard. Created by a collective of private landowners committed to conservation, Sabi Sand has linked wildlife corridors and returned former agricultural lands laced with waterholes to the animals that depend on them. Working collaboratively, landowners have removed fences so sable, eland, nyala, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe and cheetah can move freely. More than 300 bird species also inhabit the reserve. Sabi Sand provides a secluded South Africa safari experience, with an absence of day visitors and respite each evening in intimate camps and luxury lodges. While expert safari guides are mandatory for exploration, staying on the road to track an elusive leopard or an African wild dog is not. Sabi Sand offers the ultimate freedom to roam.
