A quiet corner of wild South Africa? Well, it’s all relative. Tengile River Lodge is your beautiful – albeit temporary – home in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. It’s not fenced off in any way from the legendary Kruger National Park, but while that legendarily precious wilderness ranges over some 5m acres, Sabi Sand ‘only’ has about 26,000. It’s still plenty to allow thrilling sightings of leopards – twice a day if you fancy it.
