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

This camp's location on the bank of the Sabie river is among the very best in Kruger National Park for viewing of hippopotamus and buffalo. Nearby are wonderful viewing areas for other wildlife. The bungalow was spacious and clean. The restaurant, newly opened as a Mugg & Bean franchise, had an extensive menu of very average quality. The usual inconsistency... More

We luckily got an open space at the restcamp for the night saving us the trouble of exiting and entering the game reserve. The camp is laid our next to the Sabie river with the chalet having a lovely river view with hippos snorting. The chalet was clean but very smelly with bat dropping on the outside patio and kitchen... More

It is a very good camp to start your Kruger experience. We stayed in a safari tent without A/C, which was no problem as the temperature dropped significantly after sunset. We had tent 21 (LST2UZ), which has a nice river view and is protected by trees and bushes so that you don't have to share your dinner experiences with neighbors... More

Stayed for two nights and Lower Sabie by far was our favourite restcamp out of the 5 we stayed at. Stayed in BD2U Bungalow overlooking the River.The Bungalow was clean spacious with a large terraced area with outside kitchen and everything you need to cook your meal. There was also a Braai (bbq). Found it so relaxing on the terrace... More

Why oh why do San Parks always have to refurbish everything at the same time? All food outlets were closed for renovation but we saw no work going on for the 4 days we were there...fortunately food was available in the shop so we could braai....and the nearby train station Italian was great for lunch and breakfast...nearby = 40 minutes!...

I must admit to some trepidation booking a bungalow at Lower Sabie rest camp because I'd been told they were quite basic. In my case I booked a bungalow type BD3UZ which features 3 Single Beds (1 in Dining Area), Aircon & ceiling fan, Kitchenette, Disabled access, Wc and shower. I stayed for just two nights. The bedroom, kitchen area... More

First off, this wasn't the most posh of accomodations, nor did we anticipate it as such, so it did the job. We stayed in a perimeter rondavel (thatched roof) with an outdoor kitchen. We did some grocery shopping both at the grocery store onsite and at a local store in hazyview before we entered camp. We loved being inside the... More

It's hard to provide a review because we bypassed the safari excursions and restaurants here altogether, so we can only comment on the lodging and location, both of which are solid. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and practical (we had a big fridge in our room that helped prserve a lot of the stuff we brought along). There are grills... More

Good: This state run restcamp has a good location in the southern part of the Kruger National park directly on the Sabie river. Perimeter rondavels have a view of the river where you can see crocodiles and hippos. If you book 11 months in advance or are going out of season you can even get a perimeter rondavel with 3... More
