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

Lower Sabie is a beautiful camp on the Sabie river with comfortable accommodation, a restaurant and some amazing wildlife in the area. This year the sightings were spectacular. We entered via Malelane and started with a leopard sighting. The next few days were packed with another 2 leopard sightings, lions, wild dog, elephants, rhino, a big herd of buffalo and... More

Having stayed at many rest camps in the Krugerpark, this was the first time we stayed at Lower Sabie and in the newer chalets at the perimeter, next to the restaurant. A spacious bathroom, good beds and even a little kitchen with dining table and third bed. Also a very nice patio over looking the Sabie River. Really something else... More

Spent one night in a 2 bed cottage. Lovely situation by he river. Cottage was basic but adequate with comfy beds, aircon, and kitchen facilities. Restaurant serves a wide selection of good food and wine all at reasonable prices. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in a tent which had it's own bathroom! It was located in a quiet area with other tents. Slightly worn appearance but perfectly adequate for our overnight stopover. During the night my husband heard lion's roaring. We had dinner in the restaurant which was ok but the chips could do with longer cooking as they're not crispy. Very... More
