Idube is a safari lodge situated in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, in the heart of South Africa’s premier wildlife conservation area of the Greater Kruger Park. Game, including the Big 5, is viewed really close by from open Landrovers, or spotted on guided walks. All our experienced rangers and trackers are trained to give guests the best possible wild life experience.
The lodge has 10 comfortable chalets set in an indigenous garden of tall trees and cool, green lawns. Originally designed to blend into the bush with rough, natural coloured bricks, plastered walls round the outside showers have been added creating a pleasing contrast. Tiled roofs create a clean, cool interior. The thatched bar and entertainment areas have an immediate appeal and are the focal areas for guests to gather. The open lounge is a great place to relax, whilst waiting to see what animals will come wandering in front of the lodge.
There is an early morning game drive and a late afternoon/evening game drive over an area of approx. 24,700 acres. Guests can expect to see some, if not all, the Big 5, as well as many other species of game and some of the over 300 species of birds. Animals are usually seen from very close quarters, the sighting is professionally handled and controlled. Drives are normally 3 to 4 hours long, with a stop along the way for tea, coffee or sundowners.
In between drives, guests can enjoy the swimming pool which is well situated for both bird watching and game viewing, whilst cooling off with a refreshing drink in hand. Idube happily hosts families of nyala and warthogs, which are seen almost daily around the entire lodge area. Many guests prefer just to sit on their private deck enjoying the quiet and watching squirrels, monkeys or the many other creatures that have made Idube their home.
Idube is dedicated to giving guests a genuine and informative experience in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
