Sable is a bright and beautiful luxury amid the game-rich floodplains of Khwai, and the best news is that it’s as sustainable as it is sophisticated. Located right on the banks of a lily-covered lagoon, home to harrumphing hippo and a favourite drinking spot for the elephants and the buffaloes. The big game quite literally comes to you at Sable. However, as tempting as it is to stay in camp, you should venture out! For Khwai offers one of Africa’s greatest and most exclusive safari experiences. Have your binos ready for the lions, leopards, wild dogs, buffaloes, elephants and hundreds of dainty antelopes as you drive through the diverse landscapes. Each canvas-walled suite is a huge -55 square metres, and comes complete with mini-indoor seating area, writing desk, double bed, and some serious Afro-chic decor. Slide open the screen doors at the front for uninterrupted views of the lagoon, or take a seat on the veranda for a closer inspection.
