The property is stunning, the food is simply exquisite, the game drives are first class. However it's the personal service and attention to detail that puts Earth Lodge at the pinnacle of all the places we've ever been.

We just spent a three night/four day stay at the Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge which was an amazing experience. From the time we landed at the private air strip, we were treated with exceptional care and attention. The staff were truly friendly and very welcoming. The room was fantastic and certainly a sight to behold. The setting was amazing and...

Sabi Sabi Earth is truly a first class experience. From our greeting upon arrival to our luxurious rooms it was a phenomenal stay. The living quarters (so much more than a suite) were classy, yet comfortable. In addition to the comfortable beds and beautiful bathrooms, they just thought of everything...binoculars, books about Sabi Sabi, the animals and birds. I loved...

We stayed here with a group that took up 10 of the 12 suites. We were in #5, but I would suggest requesting one between 7-12 because that side of the lodge tends to see more animals wandering thru their back yards than those of us at the other end - probably because there are more trees. One guy even...

A 5 star rating is insufficient for this experience. 10 stars would be more like it. An incredible experience and this was by far the best vacation of my life. A great resort experience with outstanding staff. From top management to the guides, the trackers, the cleaners, the servers: everyone is very attentive, professional and friendly. The resort is beautifully...

Regardless of what your expectations or prior safari experiences have been, Earth Lodge and Sabi Sabi will surpass them. By FAR. The hotel is remarkable and my room (#1) appeared larger than my 750ft2 apartment. Built into the side of a hill and essentially underground, it offers a level of both opulence and closeness to nature (I viewed a pride...

Great lodge with beautiful accoutrements. Delicious food, good service, great views. The guides were excellent and the safari rides so exciting and fun.m the lodge is modern and exceptionally clean and spacious. We had a wonderful spa afternoon. Our clinicians were professional and kind. The gym could have had an elliptical.

It's a good lodge and build in almost like underground location. Meals are very good and facilities are excellent. Not a good location to see many animals. The lady guide was very knowledgeable and very co- operative.
