Follow the movements of Sabi Sabi's sophisticated guests and you will find them to be electronically mobile, online savvy and demanding of fast, instant information at their fingertips. Their briefcases - if they carry one - generally holds a cell-phone, laptop or tablet, and very little in the way of paper!

In line with this trend, Sabi Sabi has abandoned printed brochures and marketing copy and gone 'paperless' as part of an ongoing commitment to minimising the company's environmental footprint.

A stunning electronic e-brochure has replaced the heavy paper booklet, and features magnificent images of the lodges, wildlife and staff at Sabi Sabi. It is beautiful to look at, environmentally friendly and easy to access - available on

Dozens of social media platforms keep followers updated on happenings at the lodges and keep the safari experience alive. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram are just some of the options available to those around the world who follow Sabi Sabi avidly, while the ever popular blog remains a very firm favourite. Updating current bushveld events has become second nature to the team entrusted with writing the exciting Sabi Sabi stories and the number of followers just keeps growing.

A Sabi Sabi app, launched earlier this year, is free for download from the iTunes App Store. It features all the information any guest could need - from the brochure to animal checklists, useful information and interactive applications (available at present for iPad only - click here to link to the Apple Store).

But while Sabi Sabi makes the most of the myriad social media and online platforms available while planning a visit, on arrival guests are encouraged to switch off the electronics, tune out the media and immerse themselves in the sights, sounds and unedited glory of the Sabi Sabi bushveld.

Sabi Sabi Selati: New lounge & Feb offer

The rich history that surrounds Sabi Sabi is never more evident than at Selati Camp. Its vintage, olde world character reverberates with memories of days gone by, when life was a little slower, a little more elegant and a lot more romantic. Styled on the exciting reef gold rush era, one of Selati's most beautiful and intimate areas is the lounge. This inviting spot is adorned with authentic railway memorabilia, relics of the 19th century Selati Line from which the lodge takes its name. Softly lit by oil lamps, furnished with deep comfortable armchairs and watched over by the warm, ever-attentive staff, this is an enticing area in which to relax and meet friends old and new.

After an extensive rebuild and redesign, the recently revamped lounge revealed a completely new look. A major change has the lounge now leading directly into the intimate boma and much-loved farmhouse kitchen. New floors, rich fabrics and glorious new furnishings, combined with the extension of space, glass and entrance-ways have opened up the lounge area without compromising its historic ambience and familiar characteristics. Neutral colours in soft natural fabrics still dominate, and reflect splendidly in the gleaming floor. The sensation of being out in the African bush is enhanced by the more open design, while the feeling of warmth and hospitality is as strong as ever. Sitting in the lounge sipping a glass of wine around a roaring fire, it is easy to imagine the brave pioneers and exciting gold rush days to which Selati pays tribute.

Each mealtime at Selati Camp is a celebration of style and taste. A choice of several dining locations make the most of the bushveld backdrop. Breakfast and lunch can be enjoyed on the outdoor wooden deck alongside the Msuthlu Riverbed. Dinner is served under the stars in the intimate boma or in the famed Farmhouse Kitchen - a warm and appealing replica of the farm kitchens of old.

This romantic setting is ideal for special occasions and Selati Camp has long been a favourite destination for honeymooners, couples and those seeking a luxurious break. Since taking over management of the lodge, husband and wife team Brett and Ashleigh Heasman have also added their personal stamp. Selati guests are enjoying the surprise special romantic touches on evening safari, fragrant rose petals strewn on the bed or in drawn bubble baths, and the delicious homemade delicacies resting on a pillow as a goodnight treat.

And as for the world prepares for the most romantic of months, Sabi Sabi celebrates romance in style. For every new 4 night reservation confirmed for the month of February, we will treat you and your partner to a couple's spa treatment at either the Bush Lodge Amani Spa or Earth Lodge Amani Spa. Amani Spa was recently voted by the readers of The Spa Traveller the Best International Spa in its category, so you will be sure to be pampered by our world class facilities.

Five Star Safari Splash at Sabi Sabi

While the Northern hemisphere is in the throes of winter, Sabi Sabi is enjoying another glorious summer with daily temperatures averaging around 30℃. Sunny blue skies greet every morning in the African bushveld, which is lush and green thanks to summer rainfall. Safaris are enjoyed in the pleasant coolness of the early dawn and evening, and the best way to beat the midday heat is to relax in the refreshing filtered waters of one of the lodges' award-winning pools.

Sabi Sabi was recently awarded 2nd place for the best hotel pools in the world by Conde Nast Traveler, a new accolade for our Lodges. With four uniquely beautiful pools between Little Bush Camp, Bush Lodge and Selati Camp, secluded pools at the Presidential Suites; and private plunge pools at each of the Earth Lodge suites, guests are spoiled for choice. Each pool has been designed to capture beautiful views of the bush, allowing bird watching and game viewing to carry on long after the return to camp from safaris.

Bush Lodge has two full sized pools adjacent to the wooden viewing decks; both shaded by indigenous trees and overlooking the unfenced bush and waterhole where animals gather to drink. Selati Camp's pool is set in a wooden deck looking out over the Msuthlu River towards a large grassy plain - perfect for spotting resident wildlife. Both the Mandleve and Ivory Suites offer secluded private pools for relaxing. Guests at Little Bush Camp use a swing-bridge to cross the Msuthlu River, discovering their discretely hidden pool - a picturesque setting surrounded by huge trees that filter the sunlight and provide welcome shade. Guests can also relax in Little Bush Camp's private spa baths which are a beautiful feature on the private deck of each luxurious suite.

Earth Lodge guests have the luxury of their own private plunge pools, intimate and totally secluded, flanked by comfortable pool loungers and with mini bars within easy reach. And, as an added experience, there is the option of enjoying a delicious cocktail or gourmet lunch at a table in the "day bar pool" with bare feet resting in ankle deep water - while being served by smiling, professional staff.

All the outdoor pool areas have luxurious sun loungers, fresh towels and attendant waiters ready to bring sparkling drinks to guests as they enjoy the glorious setting. Relaxing in the summer sun, wallowing in cool water and sipping cocktails surrounded by unspoilt bushveld adds a wonderful dimension to an already unforgettable safari.

Children visiting Bush Lodge's fully-fledged children's facility, the EleFun Centre, are encouraged to leave their mark by way of a colourful handprint on a designated wall. Hundreds of vivid prints, duly signed and identified by the young visitors, decorate the space. Children from countries all over the world join their local counterparts in leaving behind a handprint message that they have spent time at Sabi Sabi. 

And while the wall is a bright focal point in the centre, it's the bushveld setting, games, projects and novel activities that make the EleFun Centre such a hit with children of all ages. Catering for children from toddlers to teens, with 'edutainment' centred on a bushveld theme and run by qualified and fun staff, the centre is loved by all who visit. Programmes include identifying animal spoor, learning about different bird and animal species and what their names are in Tsonga, the language of the Shangaan people who live in the villages surrounding Sabi Sabi. Shaded by indigenous trees and featuring age appropriate activities, the EleFun Centre is offered at no cost to children staying at Bush Lodge. A large, safely enclosed area of lawn allows them to run around freely. At any time during the day our young guests can be found climbing, jumping, swinging, painting, reading, puzzle making, building, drumming or simply relaxing in the indoor or outdoor areas. In the hot summer months a supervised swim in the Lodge's cool pools is another welcome option.

Parents can relax during their Sabi Sabi sojourn, enjoy exciting bush walks and visits to bird hides, indulge themselves in the Amani Spa, or simply sink into quiet adult time, all the while being confident that their children are safe and happy. 

The EleFun Centre, which was created to be fun, safe and educational, is open every day and all activities are supervised by a highly professional team. Children are encouraged to take photographs on safari and have them displayed alongside the handprints and messages from all the past young guests who have visited the centre since it opened its doors.
