Live Streaming from the Sabi Sands Wildtuin.
Nkorho Pan, comes to you live from the Nkorho Bush Lodge in the Northern Sabi Sands Wildtuin (Afrikaans word meaning game reserve). Sabi Sands Wildtuin is in the Eastern part of South Africa and shares an unfenced boarder with Kruger National Park. It is an association of a number of private landowners, many of whom run commercial game lodges, like Nkorho Bush lodge. There are a number of lodges in the Sabi Sands to suite almost everyone’s taste, including some of the world’s leading small hotels.
The Sabi Sands is 65 000 hectares, (about 150 000 acres) in size, and forms part of the greater Kruger National Park some 2.3 million hectares (5.7 million acres). It gets its name from two perennial rivers that flow through the reserve namely the Sabie River and the Sand River.

Over a hundred years of conservation has protected this area, and in fact brought back a number of species that had become locally extinct. One of these species is the White Rhino that can now be regularly seen in the Sabi Sands. Not withstanding the large diversity of other animals and plants found there, what makes the Sabi Sands famous is its “big five” sightings, lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo. This together with its well developed tourism industry has made this an ideal location for wildlife documentary film makers from Walt Disney, National Geographic, to Animal Planet. It is openly considered one of the best places in Africa through South East Asia to see and film Leopards.
