Here are 5 of our absolute favourites, some of the best luxury safari lodges in the Sabi Sand.
Pioneers of the African safari and members of Relais & Châteaux, Londolozi offers an immersive and sustainability-driven safari experience.

For couples on the ultimate honeymoon, a private vehicle is made available, like a chariot through the African bush – take this opportunity to wave like a royal without judgment.
For the active, a gym, as well as yoga classes, are available in the Wellness Centre. After a busy day, take advantage of the luxurious massage therapies on offer, available in the privacy of your room – can it get more decadent?
