Lower Sabie has some of the best wildlife in the Kruger Park. However, the bungalows are poorly maintained. They appeared to be old and dirty, with a very loud aircon and almost no water pressure. Unlike other camps you have no privacy from other guests as you and your neighbour stare right at one another due to the bungalow design.

The Crocodile Bridge entrance to Kruger Park up to Lower Sabie Restcamp is loaded with wildlife, including the predators (big cats, hyena, wild dogs). Early (as soon as the gates open around 6-6:30 am) on the road viewing is necessary in this popular part of Kruger Park. One morning, I left Lower Sabie Restcamp at around 6:45 am drove 5... More

If you want animal sightings with minimal effort, base your stay in Kruger Park in this camp. Even sitting at the restaurant you can watch buffalo, giraffe, elephants, crocodiles and hippos all enjoying the Crocodile River. Then, once on the road, the animal sightings increase. The camp books far in advance, so plan ahead. There are several types of accommodation... More

Amazing location in the banks of the river. Restaurant and shop facilities of the highest standard. An early morning game walk with Travis and Dingaan was just incredible. The knowledge, expertise and passion found nowhere else. A real asset to the Park. Well done

We stayed in a perimeter chalet at Lower Sabie, which is always the best, if you can get one of these. As this is the most popular camp in the south, it is hence the busiest. The perimeter units have been completely rebuilt, and whilst the interior and bathroom are spacious and modern, no consideration has been given to the... More

I've been visiting Kruger every year for the past 10 years and the one camp I haven't stayed at before was this one. Most of the time we camp but due to logistics we had to stay in a bungalow. The location of the camp is excellent for game viewing. The restaurant deck overlooks the sabie river and it's just... More

WE booked well ahead, and requested adjacent bungalows with river views, we got this. The bungalows were like the rest of Kruger Self catering - functional and clean but not too flashy. The Braai was nice and close to the kitchen which made it easy in the evenings. The perimeter huts mean you can hear the Hippos cavorting in the... More

I booked because of these good reviews on trip advisor and found it exactly the same as the over all reviews. I got the Bungalow number 3 with 3 single beds. The hut was very comfortable with a complete kitchen unit with all the necessary crockery. Every hut was given a separate BBQ so we had our own Braai there... More

I had heard a lot about this camp, the location is one of the best and the camp is not too big. The accommodation we were given was not the best unfortunately, but it was good enough for 1 night. The room feels a bit old and not maintained properly, but at least it is spacious and clean. I would... More

Enjoyed the game safari and the restaurant on site but the accommodation was sub standard. Run down. old, needs a complete upgrade if all the rooms were the same as ours. Government run so I guess that explains the reason as happens in many government owned assets in countries around the world. Pity as it is a great location by... More
