As mentioned, Lower Sabie is the best camp in the parts of Kruger we have visited. The wheelchair accessible room we slept in was clean and neat. It is however outdated and can do with a revamp. There are very old tiles in the room and bathroom. Some are cracked and left as is. The toilet roll holder has broken...

My wife and I had driven down from Skukuza to spend two nights at popular Lower Sabie restcamp. The position is stunning and the reception ladies friendly and very knowledgeable and helpful - very impressed. There is a charming Mugg & Bean which is in the beautifully designed thatched main building and looks out onto the river. The Parks shop...

This is my favourite camp which offers accommodation overlooking the Sabie River as well as semi-luxury tents in a bush-like setting. The Mugg & Bean is a must for sundowners or breakfast on the deck overlooking the Sabie River.

Campsite provides what you'd expect; large camping spots (were using a 4x4 mounted tent) with complementary barbecues (cleaned every day). Facilities were adequate and clean. Had some great sightings in the area.

We spent two nights in the FU4V Family Cottage. This unit is one of only two in the camp - two bedrooms both en-suite and a shared dining kitchen area - both have equally good views of the river. The family cottages are positioned at the far end of the camp which affords the guest great privacy as well as...

We booked well in advance and were able to secure one of the Perimeter Bungalows and we were very pleased with our choice. The Bungalow was comfortable with 2 single beds, AC, and also a fan. there was a safe but it didn't work as there is no way to open it and the office wasn't able to help. The...

After waiting for 11 months for a place in the tent camp we could only get 5 nights in a row. the next two nights we were in a bungalow in Lower Sabie - all river front. We saw most of the animals we wanted to see, however the numbers were disappointing and seem to be getting fewer. The bush...

Stayed in Lower Sabie from the 05/02 to 09/02. The room was well maintained and well serviced. The camp however would do well to keep the gardens better maintained. The shop and restaurant was great with great service. The biggest disappointment was all the day trip or the so called safari operators that park where they feel like and over...

Nice camp and GREAT mugg and bean restaurant with beautiful views over looking the river. We weren't super happy with our accommodations, but part of it was our fault. Spend a little more to have a better place in our opinion.

I first visited Lower Sabie in 2006 and fell in love. 11 years later I was worried that my return would be underwhelming but it didn't disappoint. Whilst the facilities are tired (rooms smelt damp and restaurant is now sadly a franchise) the soul and much of the character remains. A superb base to explore an area abundant in wildlife...

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
