We will once again collect you for an early morning game drive to try and find the elusive animals that you might have missed on your previous drives. After your Early Morning Game Drive, we will return to the lodge. Once you have checked out your professional Driver/Guide will be waiting to transfer you to the Sabi Sands Game Reserve.

Sabi Sands has a high concentration of wildlife and is known for the predators, especially the cats. Although the Sabi Sands is a private reserve and is a more exclusive safari experience, it forms part of the Greater Kruger Park with its borders being mainly unfenced with the national park. Late afternoon and into the evenings are a great time to spot wildlife, after which you will make your way to the lodge for dinner and an opportunity to have a relaxed evening.

Refresh from your short inter-lodge transfer and enjoy some high tea and some time relaxing by the pool before heading out on your sunset drive. Sundowners will be served as you watch a spectacular sunset over the African Bush. Once the sun has set, the spotlights come out and it’s in search of your predators. Dinner is served at the lodge.
