A totally unique safari lodge aimed at guests who are wanting to take the safari experience to the next level. You don't expect to find such an impressive wine cellar, spa or gym at a lodge. The guides for the game drives are incredibly knowledgable so really add to the experience.

My wife and I spent 3 days at the Earth Lodge at Sabi Sabi. It was our first experience on safari and we enjoyed it very much. Staff are friendly and competent and the lodge is very upscale and beautiful. Our game ranger, Lazarus, was a great guide and did everything he could to make sure that our safari drives...

The Lodge was magnificent. The staff were so marvelous. So inclusive and interested in your complete holiday. The game Rangers were simply wonderful to be around, so understanding of their responsibility to the traveller and the animals they are show casing. The food was exquisite. I was so happy there. Hope sincerely I can go back some day.

We just completed our fourth stay at Earth Lodge and haven't been disappointed yet. The rooms are first class and set right in the bush with animal sitings from your room on an almost daily basis. The food is the highest quality with a 5 star chef serving you dinner on a nightly basis. The service is amazing with an...

I don't know where to start. The rooms are spectacular and are right in the bush. The main hotel facility is very casual and open. Meals are the finest prepared by their chef. Game drives are awesome. We saw all the large animals up close and sometimes I thought too close. Their guides were expert and kept us informed about...

The property is stunning, the food is simply exquisite, the game drives are first class. However it's the personal service and attention to detail that puts Earth Lodge at the pinnacle of all the places we've ever been.

Sabi Sabi Earth is truly a first class experience. From our greeting upon arrival to our luxurious rooms it was a phenomenal stay. The living quarters (so much more than a suite) were classy, yet comfortable. In addition to the comfortable beds and beautiful bathrooms, they just thought of everything...binoculars, books about Sabi Sabi, the animals and birds. I loved...

We stayed here with a group that took up 10 of the 12 suites. We were in #5, but I would suggest requesting one between 7-12 because that side of the lodge tends to see more animals wandering thru their back yards than those of us at the other end - probably because there are more trees. One guy even...
