Exquisitely sculpted into a hillside, almost invisible in the surrounding landscape, the superlative Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge is known as one of Africa’s most environmentally sensitive lodges. On arrival, a hidden corridor leads guests down to magnificently designed guest areas that are open to a panorama of uninterrupted bushveld. Thirteen luxurious suites feature individually designed furniture, private plunge pools and ensuite glass-fronted bathrooms (with indoor and outdoor showers.
Gourmet meals are served in a dining area that overlooks a waterhole and uninterrupted grasslands or in an outdoor boma sculpted from tree roots. Guests can ideal away a quiet afternoon in the secluded library or wander through the art gallery. A variety of rejuvenation treatments is available in the serene Amani Spa, while the meditation garden offers the ideal setting for moments of introspection. Activities include twice-daily game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles and guided bush walks led by an armed ranger and Shangaan tracker.
What we love about Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge
- Try to spot the entrance to the lodge as you arrive – it’s not as easy as it sounds!
- Delight in a dinner for two in the magnificent underground wine cellar, surrounded by more than 6 000 bottles of rare vintages.
- Indulge in a soothing treatment with a touch of Africa at the Amani Spa – we recommend the Sensational Bush Bath & Ikêtla Massage.
