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

Second camp of our stay, and have to say vast improvements to 18 months ago on our last visit. Whole staff attitude had improved, very welcoming and friendly and fast check in service. Chalets again standard fare, maybe a little more worn than in previous years, but some had been renovated. Good choice of food & drink in shop to... More

Stayed for six nights in March 2015. By far, the most practical of the restcamps at Kruger National Park. The restcamp is about one hour's drive north from the Crocodile Bridge gate. Some of the best animal viewing is along the roads between Crocodile Bridge and Lower Sabie, so, this restcamp is very practical for good game drives. There is... More

Lower Sabie has a beautiful position. It is wonderful to hear and see the hippos and buffalos while enjoying a braai. However the accommodation we had was run down and tired. We stayed in 2 chalets both on perimeter. In the first one the bars around the outside kichenette cupboards were not really strong enough and the baboons stole our... More

We stayed there for two days and it's quite good, much better than the other restcamp we stayed, it's clean and spacious. Furthermore, the animal around this area is also easy to spot, strongly recommended.

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
