About Sable Sands

Sable Sands is built on a rich cultural and artistic legacy, and sheltered by the stunning Sikumi forest, on the edge of the world-famous Hwange National Park. Part of the ancient royal hunting grounds of King Lobengula, the lodge was later visited in 1991 by her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II, and Prince Phillip.

Sable Sands has 11 traditionally thatched rondavels; designer bedrooms have added luxury complete with private terrace, and en-suite bathrooms, making your rondavel the perfect blend of ancient culture, nature and modern convenience.

This African forest home also has a refreshing swimming pool, a stunning main building with dining area, lounge, loft, library, bar and a terrace. From here you overlook the famous Dete Vlei, the long dried up river, which today frequently hosts wildlife visitors at the water holes. Here you have a chance of seeing sable antelope, giraffe, zebra and big herds of elephant and buffalo, lion, cheetah, painted dog, jackal and more.
