A River Runs Through It Experience
At your Sabi Sands safari lodge dramatic views are enjoyed from every corner of each suite. Start your new life together in luxurious surroundings and enjoy amazing experiences together. Warm afternoons are spent cooling off in your private plunge pool or simply soaking up the beautiful scenery. You can watch game at the river whilst you recline on your padded loungers. Sumptuous meals and intimate wildlife encounters are all part of the unforgettable honeymoon experience here.
The 3 Day A River Runs Through It Package is ideal for a romantic African wildlife safari in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. This area shares a fenceless boundary with the Kruger National Park and is renowned for its Leopard and Big Five game viewing. Off-road driving ensures exceptional sightings and rangers are constantly in touch with each other to keep track of animal movements. Back at the lodge, you can linger over a candle-lit dinner, re-living your experiences and later fall asleep in deep comfort lulled by the distant yipping of a Jackal.
Day 1: Johannesburg to Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve
Start your honeymoon with a flight from Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport to a romantic safari lodge in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. You will be met by your ranger and introduced to the area. A grove of ebony trees lends its shade to this gracious lodge, where you will spend two nights and three days in luxurious comfort. You can explore the lodge and enjoy high tea before an evening game drive or simply relax and savour the deep peace and tranquillity here. Freshen up in an al fresco shower or soak in a deep bathtub before dinner, which is served under the stars around a blazing boma fire.
Game viewing activity: Afternoon game drive.
Day 2: Safari Lodge in Sabi Sands
The day belongs to you and you can move at a pace that suits your mood. Awake to the river rolling slowly past your front door and watch Elephant make their morning ablutions. The game viewing continues all day, whether on a game drive or from the comfort of the shady main viewing deck.
You could also choose to rise at dawn and over hot beverages and biscuits discuss with your ranger the sights you hope to see on the morning game drive. Strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of your game viewing experience. Along the way you will stop at a scenic location for refreshments before returning to the lodge for a fortifying breakfast.
Interpretive guided bush walks are also available for those who want to experience the sights, smells and sounds of the African bush. This is a fascinating insight into the finer details that are missed on game drives. After lunch and a siesta you could set off in the late afternoon on an evening game drive. Along the way enjoy sipping cocktails together at a sundowner stop before continuing the drive which now searches for nocturnal animals. On your return to the lodge you will have time to refresh before another memorable dinner.
Game viewing activity: Morning and Afternoon game drives. Optional bush walk.
Day 3: Sabi Sands to Johannesburg
This is the last day of your luxury South African Safari in Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve.
After a morning activity and breakfast, you say farewell and then depart from your safari lodge for your return flight to Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport.
Game viewing activity: Morning game drive.
