Idube Private Game ReserveSabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa
Idube Private Game Reserve is situated in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, in the heart of South Africa's premier wildlife conservation area. Game viewing from open Landrovers, with experienced rangers and trackers, is outstanding, with the Big Five seen really close to vehicles.
Head for the captivating bush kaleidoscope of Idube, a world of adventure and discovery set deep in the wild heartland of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, part of the world renowned Greater Kruger Park. An exclusive family owned lodge, Idube is dedicated to giving guests a genuine bush experience.
We take a maximum of 20 people and this gives us the time to take extra special care of our guests. If you have any particular dietary problem, be sure to let us know, so we can ensure the meals are just right for you. If there is anything else you need, please ask, we'll do our best to arrange it. Remember that private meals can be organised for honeymooners or for special events.
Idube is also a great place to entertain for business, to run small conferences, or to have a wedding with a difference. For bigger groups, Idube can easily arrange to combine with other lodges nearby, with joint dinners for the group at special venues.
Idube Private Game Reserve at a Glance
Idube Private Game Reserve Accommodation
Our exclusive lodge has ten en suite chalets, each individually decorated, with air conditioners, overhead fans and high ceilings.
Each suite has been refurbished giving a very fresh and attractive look, with draped mosquito nets giving a touch of safari romance. There is also mosquito gauze on doors and windows.
Private wooden decks have been added to each suite and have quickly become the favourite place for guests to enjoy both the tranquility of the lodge and a place to view visiting animals.
Enjoy a little romance and adventure of showering under the stars, while listening to the gentle hoot of an owl or the call of a far off jackal.
No need to stop enjoying game viewing for meals, our covered deck has no walls to block your enjoyment.
This is where we serve a full breakfast, delicious lunch and tempting tea. Unless we whisk you away to another great venue, of course!
After an exciting night drive, guests gather at the thatched bar to swap tales of all their great sightings. Then it's time to enjoy a feast in the boma under moonlit skies. Our talented chefs combine the best of European and African cuisine, and venison is featured regularly. Rangers sit with guests at all meals, so you can continue hearing the best of bush tales.
Dinner in the bush is something no visitor will forget. From the time you arrive to see the firefly light of many lanterns, you know you are in for something special. Mouth-watering smells drift into the air as you stand around the fire. Glasses of red wine glow in the firelight, with darkness and the bush beyond the magical circle of sand.
Our colourful open lounge deck combines comfort with a great view of the riverbed as well as those and the African animals coming down to drink at Shadulu Dam or to graze on the lawns.
Gather up your camera, sunglasses, hat and binoculars, its time for that eagerly awaited Landrover safari!
Walks are lead by your Ranger every morning after breakfast, and if you would like to join, you will find it an absorbing experience, as well as a chance to shake down all that fabulous food. Emphasis is on looking at the small things not easy to pick up on the drive.
