Two of Sabi Sand Reserves finest lodges - Savanna and Dulini - are working together to offer their shared guests the opportunity to shun the traditional vehicle transfer, in favour of taking a wilder, more adventurous approach and walking through the game rich Sabi Sand, between the two lodges. Both lodges boast exceptionally high standards of luxury and service, however each has its own unique atmosphere and identity allowing for two totally different experiences within the Sabi Sand Reserve. The adventurous walkers will experience the chance of getting up close to fauna, flora, birdlife and wildlife. Whilst the pace will be leisurely, the experience will take approximately 6 hours including a light bush breakfast. Guests will be walking through this big game environment within the safe guidance of our specially trained rangers and trackers and will have the chance to marvel at some of the smaller, but no less impressive creatures which can only be fully appreciated when travelling through the bush on foot. The experience is guaranteed to fascinate and excite guests who will be exploring areas rarely visited by vehicles.
