This was one of my favorites in the Sabi Sabi area. The care and skill in building a safari lodge that was totally one with nature is incredible. From outstanding service, expertly prepared meals, and the best game viewing around, this is one safari lodge that is worth the money.

Situated in the heart of Sabi Sand Game Reserve, the Earth Lodge will make you feel as close to the nature as possible, while offering the most exquisite and luxurious accomodation.
It's designed to blend in with the nature, with wood and clay and earth being used as construction materials. Every villa has it's own swimming pool.
The food is delicious, and the staff friendly and helpfull.
You will go each morning and each afternoon in safaris, accompaniated by staff who is well trained and more than eager to answer all of your questions and explain everything. Vehicle of choice for the safaris: Land Rover Defender, with open top, modified especially for safari.
You will certainly see the Big 5: Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffallo and Rhino, but also a large number of birds, small mammals, monkeys, and insects. To help you remember all these, the lodge provides each room with little books, with all the animals that you may encounter, so, bring them in the safari, and, each time you see a new species, just check the box corresponding to that animal.
As for the price, you get what you pay for: complete luxury, so expect to pay a lot.
This lodge in particular is also featured in Great Escapes vol. 1, a book by the publisher Taschen, if you want a more convincing opinion about how great this place is.
Enjoy your stay!

Sabi Sabi does an amazing job of building luxury into the surrounding and not disrupting it and the earth lodge is a great version of that. rooms set under rock formations and lots of indoor/outdoor public space. The food was delicious; don't get squirmy about new types of game you will miss out on the experience. Strange to have such luxury in the middle of a national park but once you embrace it its a peaceful and beautiful place to be
