The Sabi Sand region is one of the most prolific wildlife areas in the world. The region is famous for its big cat activity and leopard sightings are common. The area is home to the Big Five, and a huge diversity of other mammals. Night game drives reveal seldom seen nocturnal creatures, including hyena, Black-backed jackal, porcupine and the rare honey badger. Four endangered species can be sighted here – the Wild dog, Black rhino, ten bat species, and the Ground hornbill.
With more than 300 bird species on its list, Sabi Sands is a great birding destination. Notable species include the Bateleur eagle, Black-bellied bustard, Burchell’s coucal, Shelly’s francolin, Red-billed oxpecker and Knob-billed duck. Other specialties include the Black-crowned night heron, Emerald cuckoo, Purple heron, and Verreaux’s eagle owl.
