We have decided to include. 4 night stay in Sabi Sands as part of our 3 wk stay in South Africa. As with many other TA members, I need help with deciding on the private lodge to seek accommodation for July 2012. We are most excited about the animal sightings but do enjoy some comforts in our stay. I have read all other postings and seem to have ended up with Mala Mala, Leopard Hills, Lion Sands, Kikmans and Sabi Sabi Private Reserve. I am asking for comparison between these on the basis of chance of animal sightings, location ( near river etc ) , value and general comfort of accommodation.
