Sabi Sand, adjacent to South Africa's flagship reserve, the Kruger National Park,
is possibly best known as home to a handful of the most luxurious private game reserves in southern Africa,
including Mala Mala, Singita, and Londolozi.
There are no dividing fences between Sabi Sand and Kruger, allowing the prolific wildlife to roam freely between the
two. The Sabi Sands area - and Elephant Plains in particular - has earned a reputation as one of the top spots
in the world for viewing and photographing leopards in the wild.
