Lower Sabie Rest camp is my favorite of all camps in the Kruger park. It is quite central, not too close to the gates which means less day visitors traffic. The camp is a bit too busy and bookings should be done way ahead, but its a well catered camp. Mug and Bean caters for the restaurant and the shop... More

As a tourist in South Africa, time is typically limited. In my tourist eyes, given how much you pay for the cabin, entry fees, and game drives a la carte - I'd def recommend splurging the extra funds and staying at a private game lodge - preferably in Sabi Sands. 2 days even in Sabi Sands will be preferred, unless...

The Lower Sabie camp restaurant itself has a lovely view over the Sabie river .we had a good breakfast while watching a baby hippo... More

After hearing so many negative reviews about the Kruger Park in the past few months, I wasn't expecting much from our accommodation at Lower Sabie. Well, I had nothing to fear. Checking in was a breeze at 4pm on a Friday afternoon. After a quick coffee at the marvellous Mugg and Bean overlooking the river, we drove to our tented... More

We booked two cabins for 5 people total. Each cabin can easily accommodate 3 people. Cabins are reasonably clean, but not very big. The vote from the restaurant is amazing - it's right on the Sabie river. Food is pretty good, although options for vegetarians is pretty limited.

This is one of my favourite rest camps. The view is not as nice as Olifants but it is still a very pleasant view over the Sabie River, especially at sunrise and sunset. The reason I like this camps is because the cabins are nicer than average, it always has green grass and shaded areas for the kids to play... More

We chose Lower Sabie rest camp because of its location. We spent every evening in the restaurant watching animals coming to drink from the river while eating delicious dinner. The camp itself is old, but quite well maintained. We stayed in basic triple room with old furniture but with working fridge and AC. That was everything we needed. There are... More

I stayed at Lower Sabie for 2 nights in a BD2 bungalow. The camp is very large and has good facilities. The convenience shop is well stocked, and the one site restaurant Mugg & Bean had enjoyable food & nice service. It also looks out over the river giving you nice views during the day. Our bungalow on arrival had... More

We stayed here for one night. We had an apartment without shower/toilet, but this proved not to be a problem at all as the common facilities were nearby. The camp was booked full, but we did not find it crowded at all. Nice and calm.

We spent 3 nights in Lower Sabie. It's a very popular rest camp: while not reaching the magic atmosphere of Satara, it's in a fabulous locations and the views over the river from the fence, the riverside bungalows and the restaurant is very difficult to match anywhere. We got a BD2U bungalow, which is near the fence, with a view... More
