Along the Kruger National Park’s western border, in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, lie a number of exclusive private reserves and luxury lodges. Frequented by the world's rich and famous, Sabi Sand offers some of the best close-up game viewing on Earth.
There no fences between the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the Kruger National Park, allowing unrestricted freedom of movement for animals and truly spectacular natural environment.
In 1961, due to the threat of foot and mouth disease and the continued hunting on adjacent private land, fences were erected between the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. The fence was removed in the 1990's.
