Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve is a private game reserve in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa. It covers an area of 60,000-65,000 ha. Situated near to the Kruger Gate, the park shares a common 50 km unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park to the east. Sabi Sand is the birthplace of sustainable wildlife tourism in southern Africa, and is the oldest of all the private reserves in South Africa. It has only ever been a wilderness area and is home to a vast wildlife population, which includes The Big Five, besides a number of endangered species. Flanking the Kruger National Park, animals pass unhindered between the reserves.
