Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve ranked World’s Best Family destination, South Africa
Sabi Sabi ranked in Tourism & Leisure: World’s Best Family destination
Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve, Kruger National Park / South Africa
With the wonderful set up for kids available, it is no wonder that the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve was last month named one of the world’s best family destinations – and top 10 in Africa and the Middle East by Travel + Leisure magazine. Effortlessly combining international standards of luxury with a unique brand of African hospitality has made the Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge in the Kruger National Park one of the world’s most sought-after lodges. Local Shangaan staff members are all inherently family-oriented and relish the added dimension that children bring to the bushveld experience, while introducing them to the splendour of a private game reserve.
Guests are welcomed with open arms and warm smiles at this luxurious lodge in South Africa and guests soon find themselves enveloped in the sense of tranquillity and timelessness that is only found in the unspoiled African bushveld.
At the Elefun Centre tailored, fun, varied and enriching programmes for the toddler to ‘tween’ age group are available. The centre is managed by Andrea Grindstad, who is wonderful with the children – a perfect mixture of fun-loving and responsible which made us completely comfortable leaving the children in her care.
Bush walks through the reserve are available upon request. Accompanied by a ranger, guests enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of the bush from a different perspective. Afterwards, therapists at the Sabi Sabi Amani Spa at Bush Lodge, pamper guests of all ages. This Bush Spa provides a special children’s menu of treatments such as massages, manicures and pedicures for the under 12’s.
The Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge had recently hosted a Nikon family weekend, where local celebrities and their families were invited to spend time at the lodge. The EleFun Centre was a buzz of activity games and treasure hunts, with the added incentive of the families being tutored on getting the best possible results from their Nikon camera equipment. By all accounts the weekend was a resounding success – not surprising when every aspect of the lodge ensures a 5-star luxury experience for all ages, while taking into account the needs of children and families. No luxury is spared but special attention is paid to child-friendliness at meals, on safari and at rest times to ensure that all ages get the most out of their visit and our young generation leave as the conservationists of the future.
