My wife and I traveled in August to Southern Africa, where westayed at Sabi Sabi Selati and Earth Lodge. Sabi Sabi is outstanding.At Selati Camp we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite, though all theregular suites were lovely. The ambiance was very laid back and quiteromantic. The guiding (game drives) was outstanding. At Selati onehuge elephant sauntered into camp about lunchtime and we all watched itfrom about 20 feet away while it proceeded to drink from the swimmingpool. Meanwhile a score or more of elephants and herds of wildebeestwere visible from the deck at the water hole. Also saw 15 lionssleeping en mass. We saw lots of Rhinos, giraffes, tons of elephants,cape buffalo and some spectacular leopards. Great food. Very lovelyplace. As we were leaving Selati for Earth Lodge a leopard came intothe camp stalking a bushbuck. The birds alerted the bushbuck, whichstarted barking like a dog and the leopard and bushbuck stared eachother down for a half hour. Later that day the leopard killed a Kudunearby.
Earth Lodge was simply spectacular. Like living in a sculpture.Amazing suites and public spaces. Perhaps the nicest place we've everbeen any where in the world. Also great food, lovely staff and a great ranger/guide.I really wanted to see a leopard in a tree and we wound up watching aleopard eating an impala in a tree for an hour (without any otherrange rover coming over). The sighting just kept getting better andbetter and better. It was a spectacular place to end our extended trip.
