One of the reasons I love South Africa is that there really is something there for everyone. For me, there is nothing better than staying somewhere where you really feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, surrounded with nature and wildlife. The Sabi Sand Wildtuin is just incredible. Having been the game reserve in which I experienced my first game drive, it will always be special to me.
I was fortunate enough to stay at and visit many of the lodges here and everywhere I went, I found the staff were incredibly welcoming. I was blown away by the knowledge and passion of the guides and trackers. They managed to find us all of The Big Five during my stay. On my most memorable game drive we even came across a three-month-old baby rhino and a herd of around 300 buffalo wallowing in the mud by a waterhole.
