This camp in Kruger National Park has it all! Excellent position next to the Sabie river, friendly staff, sufficient shaded parking during off peak days. Well stocked park-shop. It us heartening to see big brands like Mugg and Bean give their renowned quality service in this camp. The only negative is that Mugg and Bean have the prime spot for...

We stayed for 1 night at Keartland Guesthouse. The villa has his own garden and prime views. It was a pity that we couldn't use the patio and garden as baboons were camping there . In the house on every window hangs a note with a warning to leave windows and doors closed and they even advise you to close...

If you can manage to snag one, I high recommend booking a "perimeter" safari tent. An excellent, affordable safari experience, with great views and plenty of comfort. It's nice having the restaurant -- also with great views -- available if you don't want to braai (the Mugg and Bean found was very cheap by international standards, and better quality than...

I loved this rest camp. There was so much wildlife here. Elephants, hippos, waterbuck, baboons all viewed from the deck attached to our tent. Lots of birds here as well. The tent had everything we needed however my husband preferred the rondavels in other camps we stayed at. It was wonderful for me falling asleep listening to lions roaring in...

Having stayed at other rest camps both in the Kruger and Addo N.P.'s we were very disappointed with the bungalow at Lower Sabie. Although it was relatively clean (except the table in the kitchen area which was dirty) the windows wouldn't shut properly so rattled all night as there was a storm, the mosquito frames were corroded and and lose...

One of the recently renovated perimeter bungalows, and very nice they are now compared to the slightly tired look of two years ago. All now semi units attached to another with a wall between them ensuring privacy on the veranda. Glass sliding door onto veranda provides good views complimenting the great views from the veranda area. Outside kitchen on the...

After staying 3 nights up at the Satara Rest camp, it was a pleasant surprise to see actual water at lower Sabie Rest Camp. The river flowing past the camp provided us with an idyllic setting. It allowed us to view hippos, elephants, etc. as they came down for a drink. This could all be viewed from the open patio...

I stayed there for 5 nights in one of the rondavels and visited the place several times from other places. The rondavels are a little bit on the simple side but rather good value for money. Mine was very clean and was serviced daily, but a little bit old-fashioned. My requirements were met perfectly. The location of Lower Sabie is...

We stayed at this rest camp for two nights. A great place to be in relation to the abundance of animals and sighting we had. The accommodation was very basic and small, however this was what was advertised. The restaurant only offered 'Mug and Bean' options. The shop had a variety of choices and one could easily find what you...

I know the quality of the government owned camps is not great but these tents were really old and need to be replaced. Quite well equipped but very basic. There was no mosquito net available. Tents which are located on the water side had a nice view!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lower Sabie graces the banks of the Sabie River, one of the few perennial rivers to flow through the Kruger National Park. Visitors cannot but feel soothed by the view towards the river and the Lebombo Mountains beyond. In this rest camp, the bounty and plenitude of nature are very evident, eloquently symbolised by the most conspicuous of its numerous trees, the mighty sycamore fig, which provides generously for the livelihood of many birds and insects. Not only do these giants produce fruit at least twice a year, but different trees produce fruit at different times, extending the gifts of life over many months. Watching the endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River establishes a sense of one's own place in the eternal cycle. ... more   less
