Sabella Private Retreat is a private lodge nestled on an elevated edge of the
Springbok flats’ basin, offering magnificent views of this natural wonder…
only 230 km (2,5h drive) northeast of Johannesburg in a malaria free area.
The ultimate in affordable luxury and privacy, Sabella Private Retreat offers 6 self-contained private, standalone apartments aptly named after a famous South African wine, accommodating up to 14 guests. Ideal for family getaways, small safaris, corporate groups and romantic quests.
Sabella offers a range of activities such as an MTB track with a good combination of single and jeep tracks, enough elevation, rocks and sand to keep the experienced and novice biker or trail runner busy. The signature 15 m lap pool provides a beautiful backdrop to the first completed hole of a 9-hole private golf course.
The lodge forms part of a Wildlife Sanctuary with a vast variety of species such as sable, baboons, giraffes, zebra, blue wildebeest, nyala, gemsbok, waterbuck and kudu amongst many more - sometimes an occational leopard! Wildlife can be viewed on scheduled daily game drives, field guide accompanied walking safaris or from the privacy of your sleeping unit’s patio. Sabella recently earned its Bird Friendly Establishment status with Birdlife SA with a qualified bird guide that can assist guests in spotting the rich diversity of bird life in this cross-over bio-diversity.
No bushveld experience is ever complete without an evening in the boma unwinding in front of the fire while building up an appetite before indulging in a sumptuous food and wine gourmet experience in our beautifully decorated dining room.
Rarely can guests be accommodated in such privacy and affordable luxury with such an array of unspoilt Bushveld experiences.
