National Geographic Lodges of the World is more than a superior group of hotels. It is a collection of the world’s most desirable experiences in iconic locations. This affiliation is not a quality measurement, such as a five-star rating — it is a seal of authenticity and a reflection of shared values. National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World members are devoted to making a positive impact on local communities and are proven leaders in sustainable tourism practices.
Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge has been a proud member of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World since its inception in January 2015. Sabi Sabi is extremely pleased to announce that its entire collection of Sabi Sabi Lodges has now joined this prestigious brand — with four 5-star lodges having received the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World stamp of approval, distinguishing these iconic lodges and attesting to the fact that they meet the highest international standards in terms of experience, authenticity, and sustainability.
Sabi Sabi is committed to conservation of not only the environment, but also local communities and cultures. It has a long-standing relationship with adjacent communities and continues to assist and invest in the very homes, schools, and villages that its staff members hail from. Being family owned since 1979, Sabi Sabi is proud to offer visitors the world over a “luxury home in the bush.” This experience is only made possible through the passionate work of those who call Sabi Sabi home and who work to provide its combination of luxury and adventure on African safaris. Sabi Sabi follows strict ethics of eco-tourism as a custodian of the land, and protects and maintains this wilderness in its natural form through sustainable tourism efforts. This interpretation of the bush and its wonder stems from Sabi Sabi’s respect for the fauna and flora in this unique part of the world.
Sabi Sabi aims to have guests end their journeys with an appreciation for conservation and an understanding of how they too can be a part of Sabi Sabi’s journey and commitment to linking community, hospitality, and conservation — an approach it has successfully followed for almost four decades.
The selection process for accreditation as a member of the renowned National Geographic brand is rigorous. An acclaimed accessor of the brand visits the lodges for an audit, ensuring that each lodge offers an outstanding guest experience, while supporting the protection of cultural and natural heritage and embracing sustainable tourism practices.
Sabi Sabi is proud of this continued illustrious association, and pledges its commitment to the protection of resources and wilderness areas for future generations. Sabi Sabi, together with National Geographic, continues to unite Conservation, Community and Tourism.
