You walk in to your lovely room, and you would not think you were there mainly for game drives. Each room feels very private, they are spacious and yet they have wonderful views of the property. One can sit in their room and look out the large windows at some of your hoped-for viewings--we watched Water Buffalo our first afternoon.....

This was our first safari experience and we were amazed beyond our wildest imagination from beginning to end! The lodge and the rooms are beyond 5 star, we have stayed in places all over the world and this rivals all of them! Luke the manager was incredibly accommodating including everyone of the staff! The food was some of the best...

Undoubtedly one of the best game lodges in Southern Africa. The experience starts as you exit the aircraft at the local airstrip with your ranger personally welcoming you to Sabi Sabi. We had the same ranger, tracker & waiter for the entire stay which makes it much easier to get to know them and build a relationship. We spent three...

We just left the Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge after three magnificent days. Having traveled extensively, including a previous Botswana safari, we have never experienced anything like this. The staff, the game drives, the hospitality, the food, the lodging -- everything was absolutely spectacular. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity -- if you have a chance to do the...

This site is worth every penny, even during the drought. The rooms are spacious suites, each with a private backyard with small swimming pool, and views of the range. The furnishings and decor are pieces of art, in fact, the entire lodge is one large statement of artistic design. Everything was to a very high standard, and we'd return sooner...

Earth lodge is a must do! The lodge manager Nadia and her superb staff will ensure you have an unforgettable time in Sabi Sabi. Our waiter George was a delight and the chef's food was exquisite! Our ranger Franscois, and our tracker Eric were both absolutely fantastic! Can't wait to go back.

Thanks very much for your feedback and sharing with us.

From the moment we arrived at the Earth Lodge we were treated like VIP's by Luke, the manager, by the dining room staff and by our ranger, Joe and spotter Richard.
