Saba Douglas-Hamilton was born in Kenya on June 7, 1970. Her name means "seven" in the local Kiswahili language, and was given to her because she was born at 7 p.m. on a Sunday, the seventh day of the week, on the seventh day of the month, and she was also the seventh grandchild in the family. She is the daughter of zoologist, Iain Douglas-Hamilton, and a great-granddaughter of Alfred Douglas-Hamilton, 13th Duke of Hamilton.

Saba spent her early childhood in Kenya, and was then educated in the United Kingdom, at the United World College of the Atlantic and the University of St Andrews, from which she graduated in 1993.

Since 2002, she has been co-presenter of the Big Cat Diary series, with Jonathan Scott and Simon King. She has also appeared in wildlife programmes set in other countries, such as India, Lapland and in the Arctic, where she filmed polar bears. Since 2004, Saba has presented a number of short pieces featuring vacation destinations in the BBC Holiday series.
