SABI SABI LITTLE BUSH LODGE RATES: Sabi Sabi Little Bush Lodge Rates

Hidden on the banks of the Msuthu River lies the newest addition to Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve's family of 5-Star lodges, Little Bush Camp.

Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve acquired Londolozi’s Safari Lodge on 01-March 2006 and has renamed the property “Little Bush Camp”.  Little Bush Camp will complement Sabi Sabi’s existing Bush Lodge, which has a similar historical African ambience and warm, homely atmosphere. Commenting on the move, Sabi Sabi managing director, Patrick Shorten, said : “Given the proximity of Little Bush Camp to our existing lodges, it is an ideal transaction, and the additional land will enhance our extensive traversing area. We are very excited to add this beautiful little gem to our existing successful portfolio of Earth Lodge, Selati Camp and Bush Lodge”.

Little Bush Camp is situated in the shade of indigenous riverine trees on a dry riverbed and has an intimate, rustic feel that blends with the 5-Star accommodation and absolute luxury. The lodge features air-conditioned double suites, en-suite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers and private viewing decks. Thatched roofs, draped mosquito nets and wooden and stone finishes complete the picture and make for the perfect private escape for families and small corporate incentives. The habitat has been well managed over the past 20 years and features open areas of bush that make for excellent cheetah and white Rhino sightings as well as being ideal for viewing plains game such as zebra and wildebeest.

The warmth and vibrancy of Bush Lodge, combined with more intimacy and seclusion makes this an ideal bush retreat for friends, families or small groups.

Little Bush Camp offers luxury accommodation for family, friends, or small groups.

Exuding the same warmth and effortless hospitality that characterises Bush Lodge, Little Bush Camp offers unparalled intimacy and seclusion.

Six luxury suites, each with a private viewing deck overlooking the riverbed, are decorated in contemporary African design, complete with luxury furnishings, full bathroom en-suite, indoor and outdoor showers and air-conditioning. Thatched roofs, romantic mosquito nets draped over the comfortable double beds and beautiful wooden finishes complete the picture of an exclusive safari getaway.

Delicious dinners eaten outside under gently lit trees are a wonderful experience loved by all.

This jewel of the South African bushveld boasts all of the features associated with an exceptional safari lodge - beautiful setting, excellent cuisine and abundant wildlife.

Sabi Sabi's Little Bush Camp offers not only luxurious creature comforts, but a host of adventures as well. Tracking Africa's big game including the Big Five in open vehicles by day and at night accompanied by qualified game rangers and Shangaan trackers, and going off road for exceptional close wildlife encounters, make for a truly memorable experience - the highlight of your safari holiday in South Africa.

Southern Africa intrigues everyone who is lucky enough to experience its power and magic. The concept of 'Safari' conjures up images of adventure, thrilling landscapes and absorbing wildlife. Sabi Sabi Game Lodges are located in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve which is adjacent to the Kruger Park. Safaris in this part of South Africa are extraordinarily rewarding as all of the fences between the Kruger National Park and its surrounding reserves have been removed. Whilst staying at Sabi Sabi you will experience the ultimate in luxury safaris.

Animals on the Reserve have not been hunted for over half a century; resulting in them becoming habituated to - and therefore not threatened by - safari vehicles. Visitors can therefore look forward to luxury safaris which offer the unique experience of being close encounters with animals as they continue unperturbed in their natural patterns of hunting, feeding, mating and suckling.

The reserve is blessed with a great biodiversity of habitat and wildlife giving an excellent chance of close encounters with the 'Big 5' - elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard - as well as wild dog and cheetah. With over 300 bird species, the reserve is a birdwatcher's delight.

Safaris take place each morning and evening in open Land Rovers which drive through a wide variety of habitats, allowing you to view the vast interactions of the wild. After breakfast, guests on guided walking trails can experience the natural environment on foot. The dedicated, skilled and passionate Rangers lead you to discover miracles of Nature you may never have dreamed existed.

The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is a mostly flat landscape of undulating crests with some rocky outcrops, bisected by the Sand River.

The characteristic species of the Sabi Sand are impala, greater kudu, giraffe, buffalo, lion and leopard. Lions are the only truly social members of the cat family, and sightings of lion prides are the order of the day.

Open water channels and pools are favoured by hippo. Reedbeds are favoured by buffalo and elephant. Riverine forest along the river is green all year round, and is the haunt of leopard, greater bush baby (galago) and bushbuck.

The dainty-hoofed klipspringer and rock dassie (hyrax) are the only larger mammals restricted to rocky outcrops in the Sabi Sand. Chacma baboons use the outcrops as vantage points.

Bird diversity is high, with over 40 species of raptor including Hooded Vulture, Secretary Bird, African Fish Eagle,Bateleur, Brown Snake Eagle, Dark Chanting Goshawk and Giant Eagle Owl. Cuckoos, Rollers, Kingfishers, Hornbills, Shrikes, Starlings and Weavers are well represented. Some common birds along the Sand River are the Paradise Flycatcher, Heuglin's Robin, Collared Sunbird and Green Pigeon.

Open water channels and pools are favoured by Pied Kingfisher and African Black Duck. Reedbeds are populated by Burchell's Coucal, Redfaced Cisticola and various Weavers. Some common savannah birds are the Green Spotted Dove (formerly called the Emerald Spotted Wood Dove), Woodland Kingfisher, Blue Waxbill, White Helmetshrike, Lizard Buzzard, Yellow-billed Hornbill and Lilac-breasted Roller.
