This is the second time we have stayed at Lower Sabie. Last year we had no view from our safari tent - this year we had one of the best!! The location of the camp is probably the best of all - all things considered. The Mug & Bean is as good as any - in other words VERY good... More

We spent only two nights in Kruger - one at Olifants and one at Lower Sabie. Of the two, we agreed Lower Sabie was the better. Our accommodation was a "tented camp" right on the river bank. This may not be everybody's cup of tea, but for my husband (who had never been to Africa before) it was pure magic.... More

The accommodation is really good, (as ever with Sanparks!) The verandah kitchen is clean and well looked after. The anti baboon defences seemed to work very well. (If only people weren't so stupid as to feed them it would help!) The view to the river is lovely, and the birdlife in the local trees is very entertaining. The staff were... More

In the past I had stayed at Skukuza and Pretoriuskop rest Camps ,but this is the nicest camp in my opinion, try to get a bungalow overlooking the river for top accomodation. Mugg & Bean opened recently, so nice food and can be done for a couple of nights. This particular Mugg & Bean books tables on the deck. Lots... More

Lower Sabie restcamp is in an excellent location in Kruger Park. Every time we stayed here we saw plenty of animals just outside the gate and at the nearby waterhole. I am definitely not a fan of camping or shared bathrooms whatsoever but staying in a luxury tent at Lower Sabie has never been a problem for me. They shouldn't... More

This was our second visit to the Kruger and we where not disappointed. We had four day to enjoy southern Kruger. Lower Sabie Restcamp is the perfect base for this task. The fasilities in the camp are frist class with good restaurant, snack bar and coffee shop. The pool is OK but could do with a bit of TLC. Our... More

My only complaint re LS would be that the camp would be the upkeep of the accommodation seemed a little lacking - our cottage had seen better days compared to others we'd stayed at and had a rather musty smell. But it's our 4th visit to Kruger and we always include a few nights here due to the spectacular location... More

We stayed at permanent tents and did self-catering, used restaurant and shop only for relaxing coffee or an ice cream. The tents are simple but comfortable, equipped with all that is necessary and baboon-proof (there is also a special man – baboon warden, who goes around the camp checking for presence of these animals). The tent itself is though slightly... More

Hired 3 huts right by the river front. Great location, very relaxing and overall fun! Staff on site are super friendly, tours were great, it has a good size pool and you will find everything you need. Can't complain about the huts except for the bats. 1 of the 3 huts was a little "bat" smelly. Suppose one should accept... More

Lower Sabie is a huge camp -- not our first choice but convenient for family with us who have small children and wanted air conditioning and a pool -- so the types of accommodation vary enormously. Ours was horribly disappointing, strongly reminiscent of school camps in the 1970s. The area outside our rooms was a dustbath (and a mudbath when... More
