Well-habituated wildlife

Although sharing a fenceless boundary with the Kruger National Park, much of the wildlife in the Sabi Sand stays more or less in the reserve. Over the years, the animals have become used to the presence of safari vehicles, ensuring fantastic sightings for all visitors to this famous reserve.

Incredible leopard sightings

The spellbinding sight of a leopard moving silently through the veld or dashing up a tree is one of Africa’s most memorable experiences and is at the top of many a safarigoer’s wishlist. In the Sabi Sand, your chances of seeing one are as good as they get and one of the reserve’s greatest attractions.

An area rich in predator activity

The secret to the prolific wildlife activity in this particular region are the Sabie and Sand Rivers, as well as their many tributaries like the Manyaleti River running through the reserve. These water courses are the lifeblood and attract a wide range of game and predators all-year round.

Wildlife in Sabi Sands

The Sabi Sand has established itself as a premier destination in Africa, due mainly to its regular leopard activity. The quality of its sightings, coupled with the high standard of lodges, has paved the way for its success.
