The dishes include South African braais/ barbeques and African mezze platters.

The chef's trademark is cooking as much as possible freshly over the grills, thereby capturing the freshness and barbeque taste which combines excellently with the fusion of fresh ingredients.  Being also very well trained in Indian vegetarian cuisine and catering to individual needs, makes dining here a pleasant affair.

Morning safaris

An early morning call from the game ranger at the Private Game Reserve in South Africa awakes guests before sunrise, while the kitchen brews hot coffee or tea, and prepares refreshing fruit juices with a muffin, rusk or other freshly made delicacy.  

The Bush is already alive during this early morning hour, the air filled with birds as the rising sunlight can be seen.  The tracker watches the road for spoor, leaning forward intently to find any print left by a predator during its hunt of the previous night. 

Guests have the unforgettable opportunity of observing Africa's untamed wildlife in their natural surroundings including lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, giraffe, zebras, elephants and many more.

Morning walking safari

Besides exceptional dining and exciting game drives, guests staying at one of Sabi Sabi 's luxurious game lodges may experience a walking safari through the bush.

On the morning safari walk at the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve, guests set out on foot after breakfast. The walk is an opportunity to feel the pulse of Africa through the soles and experience the bushveld up close.

The Sabi Sands Reserve, which is home to this luxury game lodges, is home to about 350 different species of birds, making it, therefore, a paradise for birdwatchers. Raptors are plentiful, including 11 species of owl, the seldom seen cuckoo hawk and rare bat hawk.

There is an endless diversity of trees, shrubs and flowering plants, and whatever the time of year, no two bush walks through the reserve are ever the same.

Evening and night safaris

When the evening falls over the bush, guests and rangers, prepare for the night safari. As the temperature changes and sunset approaches, the inhabitants of the bush become restless, and the animals move out of the shade of the trees.

Guests can feel the change in atmosphere as the animals sense the transition into a time of increased danger. It is during these exciting evening safaris at the Reserve that the nocturnal hunters start stirring, and their prey needs to be alert for survival through the night.

During the evening safari through the Sabi Sands reserve, guests may be lucky enough to watch Lions prepare for their evening hunt. There are several nocturnal hunters in the bush and on the night safari, with the help of a spotlight, a leopard's eyes may reflect back from a nearby tree.

Sabi Sabi is such a beautiful lodge in the Kruger, I enjoyed my stay at The Earth lodge and definately had an experience that was unique and unforgettable.

The Game Drives were awesome and I will remember my stay to years to come.
