I love Africa and I love the bush but coming home again for a visit, I really didn't expect to take up and pay for such run down accommodation in a proudly South African game park. I knew the tents were rustic which is why I chose the experience to stay 2 nights, to hear the game at night with...

I recently re-visited the Kruger (have been many times) we stayed at Lower Sabie for 2 nights in a Hut, this is fairly basic a room with 5 beds, there were 4 of us, wardrobe, sink, drawers with cutlery and basic utensils and a fridge/freezer. There were shared cooking facilities with constant hot water for tea and hotplates for cooking,...

What a trip. The camp is so peaceful and our rooms overlooked the Sabie River. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The rooms were equipped with everything from linen to cutlery and crockery. The air-conditioning was a life saver as it was really hot and humid. The restaurant wasn't very impressive, but we catered for...

This was our second time in Lower Sabie so we already knew what to expect. It has a very good location - a lot of wildife sightings around - we saw a leopard twice around 15 mins from the camp, no lions but others have seen them. We stayed in the perimeter hut - we had a fridge in the...

We stayed here one night and were not happy with our stay. The rooms are old, smell bad and are not clean. I would not recommend using the kitchen. Its old and dirty too. At night mice come at your terrace. In the morning there is mice poop all over. It stinks really bad. The Mug and Bean is a...

We stayed here for two nights with our tent. The first problem on arrival was that the ground is hard as concrete and destroyed three of our tent pecks. The second problem and that was a real shocker: there is no fridge for the campers! That is the first time we've experienced that in South Africa. Every camp site so...

We stayed in 7 different NP accommodations, this was the worst experience. At first sight we thought it is rustic, and we had riverview, but when going to sleep we discovered that we had co-inhabitants en masse. Bugs, mosquitoes, flies, ants everywhere, on floor, walls, in the bathroom everywhere, under pillows and bedsheets. It rained, and water came in. In...

My review is based on my expectation, that is a public basic camp in a beautiful location, and that is exactly what we got. We had a riverview tent which we highly recommend. You can watch hippos at night / in the early morning along the river banks. Room is very basic which we expected, however mosquito net was missing...

Although my wife and I enjoy travelling the world, visiting the Kruger National Park every year is still the holiday where we relax the most. We have stayed at all 12 Main Rest Camps & their 4 satellite camps and regard Lower Sabie as our first choice. Our favourite choice there is their fully equipped perimeter Safari Tents with their...

Wide range of food, all good quality. I had fresh salads, my husband had meat dishes- all well prepared and presented. Wonderful view over Crocodile river. Clean, Busy. Lovely surroundings! The cost was more than you would pay if outside of Kruger, but still ok considering. Plenty of space to sit in sun or shade, ample restrooms. Service depended on...

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
