Experienced, knowledgeable rangers are paired with local trackers, and together they ensure a memorable safari experience. Trackers sit up at the front of the vehicle looking for fresh animal tracks, while rangers skilfully navigate into ravines and through thickets in pursuit of fantastic game sightings such as the Big-5 (Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo & Elephant), and various other species of wildlife like giraffe, zebra, warthog, impala, cheetah and jackal to mention the highlights. This is also a popular area for bird-watching.

The Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve has a reputation for its excellent leopard sightings, however what you see is never guaranteed as after all it is nature.
