Stayed in a bungalow overlooking the river. Great views of the river and we were able to see hippo. Magical place. The bungalows are maintained very well and have all the facilities required. Check in staff were wonderful and ensured our friends were right next door to us. The area is very well looked after and tidy. Braai (bbq) areas... More

Stayed in a brand new bungalow (76) which had hot plates, microwave, braai area, utensils & fridge. The trick with all the rest camps are to check before you book - the website can lack information especially with a rest camp like Lower Sabie which is currently undergoing upgrades to their existing accommodation...some bungalows offer only the bare necessities which...

We enjoyed our stay at this camp. It is a lovely spot and the view from the restaurant area in particular is stunning. Every aspect exceeded our expectations and our accommodation overlooking the river (and an easy walk along the fence to the restaurant) was everything we hoped for. On the Sunset Drive we had a great trip with a... More

Lower Sabie Restcamp benefits from a fantastic location on the Sabie River bank. We had very basic accommodation - even though we booked about 5 months in advance - without kitchen facilities and shower or toilet. We were very fortunate that the restaurant had just been renovated - and the renovation has been very well done indeed. They server good... More

We stayed in tent no 9 in early June 2014. It wasn't the tent we requested and was set in the bush with no view but did have a lot of birdlife around. It is quite close to Sunset Dam and each evening (4) the Baboons moved through . The fridge was in a cage and we locked the cage... More

After our first visit last year, with a bad experience with the baboons, we again decided to stay in one of the tents at Lower Sabie. We were prepared for the baboons this time, but unfortunately no warning signs or notices anywhere to be found, like last year. Other camps in the park do a better job, when it comes... More

At long last Kruger management have decided to offer some decent food. We have been visiting Kruger park twice a year for five weeks each time for the past ten years and have seen the catering go down and down at all the Sanparks camps so much so that we have self catered for the past several years despite the...

Sitting on the verandah of our huts sipping wine and listening to the hippos calling to each other in the river Sabie opposite was a magical Kruger experience - we looked up from lunch one afternoon to see an elephant meandering past on his way for a drink! I loved this place. The fixed tents we stayed in are situated... More

Lower Sabie is the first camp we stayed at Kruger. I was a bit worried as I had read negative comments on tripadvisor before; however, it was quite good. We had a tiny guest in our room (a baby bat on the curtain), but after all you are in Kruger! The staff was helpful and kind, the room and bathroom... More

The Kruger is a fantastic place to visit and there is nowhere better to see the animals in the wild in Kruger. The Lower Sabie rest camp is well located but, don't expect high quality service or facilities. Camp was fully booked and under major construction. We stayed in a communal hut, three beds in each room and no kitchen... More
