We camped in Lower Sabie for 3 nights. The ablution facilities are clean and looked after. Stand is a bit more private than in the rest of the Park. The change of the restaurant to a Mug and Bean was the best move the Park could have done. The verity of animals to see around Lower Sabie is great and... More

Lower Sabie Rest Camp is in the south of the Kruger Park, on the banks of the Sabie River. We stayed in a safari tent on the edge of the camp (overlooking the river) for 1 night. Would have liked to stayed longer, but the camp was fully booked so we headed over to another camp the next day. The... More

We stayed in a unit overlooking the river. Lovely views and ample lawn for the kids to play on. The camp itself is looking really good and one can see that management are paying attention to the small details that often get overlooked. Staff were efficient and friendly. We really enjoyed having a coffee on the beautiful deck at the... More

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...
