We really enjoyed our stay and Lower Sabie. The view is amazing. The Bungalows are ok, clean and with air conditioner:-) They also have a small store, where you can buy basic things and also a rest., if you don't want to cook. The food was really tasting. We would return for sure.

We really enjoyed our stay and Lower Sabi. We stayed in a pre erected tent and it was rustic but had everything we needed. The bar was a friendly and welcoming place and the food was nice. I loved that you could sit by the river and watch all the wide life. We saw so many hippos. If going into... More

Visited the Kruger Park for 5 days with my girlfriend and her family! We stayed at the Lower Sabie camp for our entire stay! My Girlfriend and I had our own chalet. For people coming here and expecting luxury...don't. The chalets are old built with wooden kind of grass roof, the toilet is very basic but has everything you need... More

This rest camp has a fantastic location right on the Lower Sabie River. The grounds are nice and green with good views of the river and also lots of birds to see in the camp. The shop is good and well stocked. We have been twice before and still enjoyed our stay despite a few negatives. The reception was very... More

The Lower Sabie area is richly diverse and the location of the camp and central restaurant etc... is truly splendid. With a modern restaurant it offers a welcome oasis for those to quench their thirst or enjoy a meal while watching Buffalo, Elephant, Hippo and others along the river. The chalets seem to have been recently modernized however they are... More

I was fortunate enough to spend two nights at the Lower Sabie Rest Camp, we stayed in an EB Hut with communal ablutions and communal kitchen. In my opinion Lower Sabie is the best camp in the south of the park, the Mugg & Bean Restaurant is great, the park shop is brilliant, a swimming pool to cool off and... More

and baboon-proof We stayed at a permanent tent fully equipped with kitchen. The kitchen is outside and in the summer you will attract many interesting insects if you are cooking at night. The refrigerator and food pantry are secured with a lock to avoid the problem of baboons raiding your supplies. The tents are nice and come with shower and... More

We stayed in the luxury tent. The tent was comfortable and had everything you needed. Because it was the middle of summer the heat is extreme. The tents get very hot and the ceiling fan does little to cool it down, I would recommend that you bring a floor standing fan. When cooking on the porch it is best to... More

The most popular of all the camps Lower Sabie is well maintained and provides for both families and couples/singles. The units are well furnished and equipped, many with beautiful views of the Sabie River. The camp boasts a new restaurant and a good shop. There are tented units as well as huts for two - four guests and family cottages... More

Stayed four nights at the BD3U bungalow on the perimeter overlooking the Sabie River in mid-December. Since this was a busy period, I booked it on the day the bookings opened in February. In July I emailed the camp with my preferred bungalow numbers, no.18 being the number one choice (as learnt from the Sanparks forums) and that's what we... More
