Game drives with experienced trackers and guides got us closer to the animals than I ever imagined we would be.

If you can go to both Idube and Lukimbi, they are a perfect match! It is not a luxury lodge but it is well run, has excellent rangers, a homely atmosphere and has amazing amount of Big 5.

It was very cool to see them around the lodge during the day. The staff is very friendly, the food was very good, the room was beautiful. But it is the game... More

Both Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands property provided opportunity to see game-active, at rest, hunting or eating prey. The guides were knowledgeable, respectful of animals and appreciative of sightings.

Our family just spent a wonderful 4 days at Idube Game Reserve in Sabi Sands. The staff at this small, family owned and operated establishment were warm and welcoming throughout our visit.

I could not have asked for a greater safari trip. We saw the big five on our first game drive, and continued to see them most days, even saw a cheetah.... More
