Bordering the Kruger National Park
Outlook Lodge Sabi River is found in one of South Africa's most well-known safari regions. Located near the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and bordering the Kruger National Park, the lodge offers guests an intimate stay with Meru-style tents. The accommodation on offer allows guests to be able to take in the beauty and tranquility of their surroundings. Escape to and experience the incredibly-beautiful South African bushveld at Outlook Lodge Sabi River. The lodge, located just 6km from the Kruger National Park’s Paul Kruger Gate, is the ideal place to relax and immerse yourself in the tranquility of your surroundings.
Your Sabi River safari experience starts at our departure point in Johannesburg.Your journey to the camp is incredibly scenic and takes you through some of South Africa’s most captivating routes, past open fields and green, mountainous terrain. You’ll travel through the highveld and then on towards the beautiful Lowveld area. During this time, we’ll stop to grab a quick bite to eat (own expense) as well as stretch our legs.
Once you arrive at the camp, you’ll be welcomed by our team before being shown to your accommodations. After a little relaxation time, where you’ll get the chance to take in the beauty of the South African bushveld around you, you’ll embark on the first game drive of your safari - a Sunset Drive with South African National Parks (SANParks) inside the Kruger National Park. You’ll be transferred to your departure point by our team.
The Sunset Drive is a truly special experience as it gives you the opportunity to try and find the park’s nocturnal species, which includes some of the big cats. Your SANParks ranger will also do his or her best to share info about the park as well as the abundant bird and plant life there.
You’ll then be picked up by our team and transported back to Outlook Lodge Sabi River for dinner. In the evening, meals are served in our specially-designed dining area, which allows you to enjoy traditionally-South African meals against a backdrop of open bush and a starry sky.
Your mornings begin with an early wake-up call, coffee or tea, and snacks, before your first game drive in the Kruger National Park. You’ll then hop aboard our specially-adapted open safari vehicles for the drive to the park as well as your game drive in the park with one of our knowledgeable guides. Kruger safari game drives are usually between 3 and 4 hours long and allow guests to learn more about this world-renowned National Park as well as the wildlife and birdlife that reside here. You’ll also be able to hopefully spot the famous Big 5 - namely lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo. After your game drive, you’ll return to the Camp via Paul Kruger Gate for a 2-course breakfast. The chefs are well-trained and do their best to prepare hearty, wholesome meals for our guests. You’ll then get to relax at the camp before lunch.
During your time at the camp, you may get to see some of South Africa’s well-known wildlife species roaming around as our camp borders the Kruger National Park. Often have elephant, buffalo, hippo and many antelope species visiting us. Hyenas and leopards are also found at our lodge.
After lunch, you’ll get to go on your second game drive of the day. As with your morning drive, you’ll meet at our dining tent for snacks before departing for Kruger Park. You’ll hopefully get to spot the animals that you haven’t as yet on this game drive, which extends into the early evening. However, park gate opening and closing times do vary based on the different seasons.
Following your game drive, you return to the lodge for dinner. Your chefs will introduce themselves as well as what’s on the menu before you dig in. Dinner time is also a great time to get to know your fellow guests as well as chat about some of your and their best moments on this Sabi River and Kruger safari so far. After this, you’ll retire to your accommodation for a great night’s rest.
You’ll wake to the sounds of the tranquil African bush - a truly magical experience. We’ll meet at our usual spot for a refreshing cup of tea or coffee and safari snacks before your last game drive in the park. If there’s anything you’d still like to see on your Kruger safari - be sure to tell your guide. While they can’t guarantee sightings, it’s always a good idea to let them know. After a morning spent exploring and experiencing the Kruger National Park, you’ll return to Outlook Lodge Sabi River for breakfast. You’ll enjoy a cold and hot breakfast before preparing for your journey back to Johannesburg. Once you’ve said your goodbyes to the team at the lodge, we’ll make the 6 to 7-hour journey back, stopping halfway to grab some lunch (own expense).
