People with great vision

The Sabi Sand as we know it today has its roots as a formal association dating back to 1948 when the landowners formed this private nature reserve. Credit for the association, however, should go to the original pioneers of this private game reserve in the late 1920's and early 1930's.

Of these pioneers, no less than six of their families are now third and fourth generation owners of the land - a credit to the foresight of their forefathers who loved and respected Africa's flora and fauna. As now, fences were unheard of, with only cairns of stones marking the corner beacons of individual properties.

Sabi Sand is situated in Mpumalanga, South Africa, the Sabi Sand game reserve is a wildlife sanctuary which forms part of the greater Kruger National Park game preservation area.

The Sabi Sand shares a common 50km (31 mile) unfenced eastern boundary with the Kruger National Park and no fences exist within this area and animals are free to roam unhindered through the enormous conservancy with habitat types ranging from riverine thicket to open savannah.

The Sabi Sand is an association of freehold landowners, many of whom manage commercially active photographic safari operations. Sharing a common environmental management program, this association is administered by a warden reporting to an elected executive committee.
