Sabi Sands Big Cat Safari

The Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve is one of Africa’s premier destinations, a wildlife enthusiasts’ paradise. Sabi Sands forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park, where wildlife can move freely and are in great abundance, including Africa’s Big-five.

This Sabi Sands Big Cat Safari adventure is based on Photographing all of our unique and wonderful animals, but focuses specifically on the Big Cats (Lion, Leopard and Cheetah).

You do not need to be a professional photographer to join - if you have a passion for wildlife, even if your camera of choice is a Smart Phone, you will enjoy this unforgettable experience.

The Safari is led by Professional Guide and Wildlife Photographer Armand Grobler, whose photographs have won multiple awards and have been recognised worldwide in magazines, TV programs and even the International News, where his ‘Elephant Itch’ photograph was published around the world.

It will be an unforgettable adventure, filled with laughter, information, fun and of course, spectacular photographic opportunities!

Our Sabi Sands Big Cat Safari will be held at the breathtakingly beautiful, luxurious yet rustic Nkorho Bush Lodge, a 4-Star Lodge with air-conditioned rooms, WIFI and more!

Make the most out of your African adventure and join us on a truly authentic African Safari Adventure!

Day 4...

·     The usual early morning rise with steaming cup of coffee and rusks.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road.
