Families with children have always been welcomed at Sabi Sabi’s Bush Lodge. Now the family experience reaches a new level with the opening of the EleFun Centre, a fully fledged children’s facility within the lodge environs which fosters children’s awareness and appreciation of nature. The recently completed centre was designed by childcare professionals who set about creating a space that is fun, safe and educational. The EleFun Centre will be offering hands-on, interactive activities designed for 2 distinctly different age groups. The Junior Tracker programme is for 4 to 8 year olds, and the Junior Ranger programme is for children between the ages of 9 and 12.
For decades, visitors to Sabi Sabi have been intrigued by the local Shangaan culture and customs of nearby villages. Stories are shared by the many Shangaan staff members who call the private game reserve home; with their rich heritage, in-depth knowledge of the bushveld and local legends adding a fascinating dimension to a memorable safari. Now guests are able to gain even more insight into authentic village life by taking part in a tour of neighbouring communities during their stay at Sabi Sabi. Homes, schools, community centres and sports facilities are participating in the tour; and the proceeds from the small fee levied to guests all go directly back to the community.
