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

It had a kitchen on the nice sized verandah which included fridge (in cage), utensils, pot/pans, electric kettle for hot water to make coffee etc. Two days later we stayed in... 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

again I have been in the Kruger many times, but this place is really tired, ie, missing bath tiles, missing light bulbs, missing cutlery and plates, generally this "clamping tent" needs a total refurb. The major fault being the electric cooking rings when turned on blow the fuse and all the others we tried did the same! So only thing... More

Lower Sabie is the perfect location if you want a park that is easily accessible (a couple hours drive from the Skukuza, Crocodile Bridge, Paul Kruger, and Phabeni gate) and also has GREAT wildlife. We saw everything on drives around this area except lions-- we even saw a cheetah and a leopard. The drive between Skukuza and Lower Sabie is... More
