Safari Rangers are
leading overland and fly-in tour operators to the world famous Sabi Sand Reserve, providing our very own complete safari tours to this prestigious private reserve, offering
you the opportunity to really experience the untamed
African bush and all it's indigenous wildlife, in style with everything laid on.
The Sabi Sand Reserve borders
the western edge of the Kruger National Park. No fence exists
between the Kruger Park and the Sabi Sands, so all the animals are free to roam in
and out unhindered.
Being directly connected to the Kruger National
Park is a major advantage for game viewing and has contributed to making the Sabi
Sand Reserve one of the most prestigious
private wildlife reserves in South Africa.
We have a lasting passion and closeness with
the Sabi Sands. It
is one of the most expensive
reserves in South Africa to tour to but more
importantly it is the 'best' private reserve for wildlife
in our professional opinion.
The Sabi Sand Reserve is world-renowned for it's Leopard sightings. Completely wild Leopards have become accustomed to the 4x4 Land Rovers permitting us to follow them through the bush even whilst they are hunting. It's all 'close up' Leopard viewing - mostly only a few metres away.
We operate in the wilder northern part of the
reserve (North of the Sand River), which is still
an affordable area
of the Sabi Sands and is very much
situated away from the mainstream tourist areas. One can still experience the
the South African bush in seclusion in this area of the Sabi Sands.
You will find the 'lodge' accommodation exceedingly comfortable.
The service is open and friendly, giving you that homely atmosphere.
All the 'off road' 4x4 game viewing drives and walking safaris are carried out
by professional game rangers and local trackers, who will always
indulge you with the best game viewing - it's all very traditional.
There is no 'best time' to visit the Sabi Sands
Reserve. It's just great to visit anytime. There are however two
distinct seasons that could determine when you would prefer to
Summer season (September - March) is the season
during which all the animals flourish because of the rain - it's
the time of plenty. Thunderstorms occur mostly at night. As a result the reserve is transformed into a green
paradise. It's the time to enjoy beautiful trees and flowers.
Hundreds of Impala lambs are born; staple diet of all the predators.
During the summer season you must be prepared for day temperatures of 27°C with max temperatures reaching 37°C. The temperatures fall to around 20°C at night, with occasional thunderstorms.
Winter season (April - August) is the dry season. Because it virtually doesn't rain in winter, the park is transformed into a brown and almost barren landscape. The animals have to concentrate at the perennial waterhole's and rivers. The grass is low, the bushes and trees have lost their leaves. As a result one can have an unobstructed view through the bush making the game viewing much easier.
During the winter season, you must be prepared for temperatures dropping to 7°C at night with the odd night at zero°C. Average temperatures during the day reach a comfortable 20°C.
