Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge, which is situated within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, is one of four completely separate luxurious, all-suite, award-winning lodges with very distinct characters and atmospheres.

Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge is sculpted into a slope of the earth, almost invisible, as its camouflaged into the landscape, and uses texture, light and space cleverly. Its rustic rough mud walls remind you that you are in wild Africa and offer an experience like no other.
