Bush Lodge | Today Camp
Sabi Sabi Game Reserve
Family Friendly Luxury Game Lodge All inclusive 5-star property
This is a family friendly camp with some of the largest rooms you will find in any game park. This is a larger camp that accommodates families with children, but still offers first class facilities. It is not all inclusive, so beverages are an additional charge, although you can book all inclusive if you chose. There is an elephant that frequents the lodge and I have heard people mention that they have seen this big bull elephant in camp. He was not there when we were there, but this is a picture of him at the camp.
Sabi Sabi is adjacent to the Kruger National Park, in one of the oldest proclaimed private reserves - Sabi Sand Wildtuin. This is 500 km east of Johannesburg. Easily reached by air from Johannesburg via Mpumalanga International Airport, with a short plane ride to Sabi Sabi Airstrip. Private air charters can fly into Sabi Sabi Airstrip directly.
The accommodations here are 25 oversized individual villas. All air conditioned with huge bathrooms and living areas. Total luxury in the rooms. Children are accommodated well. The rooms are spread out over a large area with manicured grounds between the villas.
Morning and afternoon game - drives are with knowledgeable rangers. The Sabi Sabi Reserve offers excellent opportunities to experience the big five, and other animals in the diversity of the bush. The land around Sabi Sabi camps is really quite unique and changes from area to area. We had outstanding rhino and lion sightings between Bush and Earth Lodge. The pictures we took are shown below.
Personal pictures from our trip to Sabi Sabi. Notice how close the land rover is to the Rhino.
Spa and Work-out Facilities
The camp offers health and wellness spa with many treatments available.
Dining and the Lodge Public Areas
All meals at Bush Lodge are buffet including dinner. There is a large variety of food at dinner and the selections are excellent. I believe they do all buffet because it works better with children. TV is available in the lounge but not in the individual rooms. There is a large swimming pool. This lodge has a "loading" platform for easy access to the land rovers. This may have been developed for families with grandparents traveling, but I found it a wonderful idea.

Internet facilities and conference services are available.
If you want to experience a first class camp with outstanding game viewing and take your children or you do not mind children being present, then this property is an excellent choice. They call this the "Today" of their Sabi Sabi collection. The design is not traditional African nor is it contemporary. A perfect balance of styles.
