Earth Lodge - Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve
Earth Lodge encapsulates the philosophy of “Tomorrow.” Taking its cue from the surrounding environment, Earth Lodge has been described as ‘the most environmentally sensitive lodge in Africa.’ Care, consideration, conservation and co-operation are the pillars on which the lodge was built. Care for the earth itself; consideration for the fauna and flora; conservation without compromise; co-operation with local communities. This philosophy culminated in the creation of Sabi Sabi’s 5-star Earth Lodge, an extraordinary, groundbreaking safari retreat that reflects Africa’s immense artistic talent. Sculpted into a slope of the earth, with textures and hues borrowed from nature, the lodge merges so well into the surrounding bushveld that it is virtually invisible. On arrival, a concealed pathway winds down to a dramatic entrance opening to a panorama of vast bushveld. There are only 13 suites in this intimate lodge, each individually decorated and gloriously luxurious, featuring furniture sculptures created by renowned sculptor Geoffrey Armstrong. Exquisite soft natural fabrics and linens, en-suite glass fronted bathrooms with deep stone baths, indoor and al-fresco showers, private plunge pools and patios with a view onto the African plains, plus on-call butler services – this is truly luxury bush accommodation. The magnificent Amber Suite boasts its own steam room, study and kitchen, and, of course, a private Land Rover. Earth Lodge meets and exceeds the highest international standards, with a well-stocked library, intimate bar, art gallery, sheltered swimming pool, meditation garden; and an underground wine cellar with a collection of over 6000 bottles of wine. Delectable meals are served in the indoor/outdoor dining area overlooking a waterhole – or at night in the magnificent outdoor boma. As an additional indulgence, Earth Lodge now presents the new, full-service Amani Spa. Each morning and evening safari vehicles depart into the Sabi Sabi wilderness. Sabi Sabi is within the Sabi Sands Reserve, a recognised 'hot spot' of biodiversity which makes for an astonishing variety of wildlife – including over 200 mammal and 300 bird species. Safaris are enjoyed in open Land Rovers with close encounters with the Big 5 being a regular occurrence. Environmental awareness walking safaris add an extra dimension to the bush experience, allowing a close-up look at the fascinating smaller creatures of the bushveld. Earth Lodge is a celebration of ecological responsibility, which belies its 5-Star rating and standing as one of the world’s top 10 destinations. No visitor is unmoved by its presence, and everyone leaves a little richer in spirit.
