We spent four nights here in early January. I loved this property, we ended up with a cabin overlooking the river, all the cabins have great views!

Our group of four book the luxury log cabin on the river. It was perfect for four people all together. The cabin has a beautiful deck, nice living room (with air con) and two bed rooms (air con as well). We enjoyed just relaxing at the lodge and swimming in the pool. This was a great place for a night...

We stayed there for one night only, after leaving the Kruger Park. What a wonderful place to stay. Friendly staff, good food and excellent accommodation. The food was great, and it was real value for money. We will return!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the banks of the Sabie River overlooking the majestic Kruger National Park lies Sabie River Bush Lodge, a bush lodge where you can "recharge your soul" and experience the African Bush. Situated a mere 19kms from the world famous Paul Kruger Gate and 13kms from Phabeni Gate, this is the place you want to be! Sitting on our raised pool deck enjoying great, friendly service and a cocktail with an African twist, one can view the BIG 5 and some of our smaller, yet beautiful, wildlife. With an extensive bird watching opportunity, there is no better place to sit back, relax and take in the natural beauty of the African Bushveld while all your needs are taken care of by our staff!
