Accommodation at Idube
Head for the captivating bush kaleidoscope of Idube, a world of adventure and discovery set deep in the wild heartland of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, part of the world renowned Greater Kruger Park. An exclusive family owned lodge, Idube is dedicated to giving guests a genuine bush experience. Enjoy a little romance and adventure of showering under the stars, you never know what might join you.
Relaxing round our boulder pool is a great place to be in the middle of a warm day. Stretch out in the sun or under a shady canopy of trees, watch the birds as they swoop and dip round the water or just lie back, close your eyes and enjoy the sounds of the bush. Step onto our gently swaying bridge and you cross over to the sunken hide. From inside its cool walls, you look directly onto the dam and the animals as they cross untroubled in front of you. The hide is designed especially for photographers, so make sure you have plenty of film.
After an exciting night drive, guests gather at the thatched bar to swap tales of all the great sightings. Then it’s into the boma and under the moonlit skies, time to enjoy a feast. Our talented chefs combine the best of European and African cuisine, and venison is featured regularly. Rangers sit with guests at all meals, so you can continue hearing the best of bush tales. Dinner in the bush is something no visitor will forget. From the time you arrive to see the firefly light of many lanterns, you know you are in for something special. Mouth-watering smells drift into the air as you stand around the fire. Glasses of red wine glow in the firelight, with darkness and the bush beyond the magical circle of sand.
As you sit enjoying a traditional South African dinner, the quiet conversations of the guests is broken by awe inspiring roar of a nearby lion or the predatory hoot of a spotted eagle owl on the hunt. There is a sense of wonder, this is true Africa and you are a part of it.
