Arrival at Singita Sabi Sand

You’ll never forget the first time you touch down at Singita Sabi Sand‘s air strip. After a brief flight over the seemingly endless grasslands and bushveld of the Kruger National Park, a pale ribbon of tarmac comes into view, cutting through the lush green carpet below as the plane approaches the clearing. A small herd of zebra nibble casually on the grass, completely unperturbed by your imminent arrival.

Within seconds, the aircraft is deftly lowered to the runway and comes to a smooth standstill in front of a small, thatched “terminal”, and you wait for the propellers to stop and the doors to open. The steps to the airstrip are lowered from the plane and a warm breeze fills the cabin with the unmistakable smell of the African bush; a mixture of dry grass, fragrant buchu leaves and the promise of an afternoon thunderstorm.

Your bags are whisked away by an efficient porter as your field guide and tracker introduce themselves and offer you a cooling drink and a steaming towel. Together they will care for you for the duration of your trip, escorting you on twice-daily game drives, teaching you the laws of the bush, preparing your evening gin and tonic, and sharing with you the delights of Singita’s 45,000 acre concession in the Sabi Sand. Once you are feeling refreshed from your journey, it’s time to jump in the game viewing vehicle and head to the lodge, where the adventure really begins.

Experience Rwanda

Tucked between Tanzania to the east, Uganda to the north and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west, Rwanda is a remarkably small country nestled in a 10,169-square mile pocket of land brimful of high-altitude forests and shimmering lakes. Known affectionately as “The land of a Thousand Hills” due to the endless stretches of undulating hills in its topography, this tiny country offers as many experiences too. And Rwanda’s warm heart and gentle spirit are increasingly beckoning likeminded travelers to embrace its beauty.
