About This Sable Sands Slideshow

Although Sable Sands Lodge is not actually within the Hwange National Park boundaries, it is located in an area that does get a lot of wildlife sightings - right by Dete Vlei. The national park does not actually have barriers or fences, so the animals are free to roam outside the park boundaries if they wish, and they do! Dete Vlei gets visits from animals such as elephants, sable antelope, zebra, jackal, painted dog, buffalo, lion, giraffe, and cheetah to name a few. Sometimes the animals get as close as the lodge, and elephants are regular visitors to the swimming pool. You can see a guest observing the animals at the vlei. Sable Sands is great for wildlife photography.

In the slideshow, you can see pictures of the main lodge with wide open space, in it a bar, dining area and lounge with library. You will also see stairs that lead to the loft. The rondavels, generously spaced around Sable Sand’s central swimming pool, have been designed with flexibility in mind and can be arranged as twin, double or family rooms, with on-suite bathrooms and shower and complete with small private terrace areas. You will see the newer vlei rooms which are lined closer to the water source.

Our Opinion

Sable Sands is positioned in an area with fantastic game viewing, and although it is a mid-ranged safari lodge, you will be well taken care of.

Most safari camps in Hwange are highly priced, luxury lodges targeted at the very wealthy. At Sable Sands, they have aimed at the middle market, prices are much more reasonable and although not absolute luxury you are still well looked after in more than comfortable surroundings and are positioned in a fantastic game viewing area, that easily rivals any of the more expensive options.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
