Explore the diverse nature of South Africa by land and sea, combining a luxury safari adventure at Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve with breath-taking coastal landscapes at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, both members of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World program, which allows visitors to experience an authentic adventure. 

Revel in the beauty of the African bush at Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve, enjoying a three night stay at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge - a celebration of the natural mineral wealth of South Africa with threads of gold, silver and copper throughout the lodge.  The unique architecture allows for a true African experience in this environmentally sensitive lodge.  Sculpted into the earth, the lodge has unobstructed views over the bushveld, with just 13 luxurious suites leading out onto a private patio with plunge pool. 

Discover the wonders of nature on early morning and afternoon safaris in open vehicles, guided by expert rangers and Shangaan trackers.  There is also the option of enjoying a guided environmental awareness safari on foot to gain a unique perspective of the bush. 

From the bush, head to the whale coast to relax in the eco-paradise of Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, nestled between the mountain and the sea.  Just two hours from Cape Town, Grootbos is situated in the home of the "Marine Big-5:" whales, sharks, dolphins, seals and penguins.   

Enjoy a three night stay in an expansive free-standing suite, featuring a private deck with panoramic views over the surrounding country and coast. Feast on the finest cuisine and locally sourced wines, enjoy a rejuvenating spa treatment in the ancient forest and discover the floral and marine life by foot, horseback, 4x4, boat or plane. 

Jacada Travel offers a six night safari at Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve and Grootbos Private Nature Reserve from $6,500 per person from the UK. This includes international and internal flights, all transfers, three nights at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge on a full-board basis with all game drives, and three nights in a luxury suite at Grootbos Garden or Forest Lodge on a full board basis and activities.
