A weekend that I have been looking forward to had finally came to materialise when we checked in Sabie River Bush Lodge on Friday afternoon 12th Dec. We were welcomed by super friendly staff that made us feel at home in a blink of an eye. One could genuinely sense the spirit of belonging once the staff grabbed our bags... More

I only stayed at Sabie River Bush Lodge for one night, and then moved to Protea Gate Kruger Park after that for a conference. The people at Sabie River were very nice and I loved the viewing deck and eating area looking out at the river. This place is smaller and more intimate that Protea gate. The restaurant lets you...

Hi Thank you for staying at our lodge, your business is really appreciated. You are correct the price difference between the two "hotels" is vast and we proud ourselves on the friendly service and the home cooked meals that the lodge offers at the very reasonable prices. I will be checking up on the wi-fi as we have recently spent... More

We stayed here for two nights. The location is beautiful, nice veranda at the water where you can relax. The swimming pool is very small but good enough to cool down. Our room was clean and big enough with a safe and everything you expect. The service is excellent! Very friendly and helpfull. They gave us a lot of info... More

We were looking for comfort close to Kruger at a good price. The lodge did not disappoint. I found the rooms clean, nicely decorated, air conditioned and with a great shower. That was comfort. The setting of the lodge is just beautiful looking onto the river where elephants come to drink. Food was pleasant and varied each day. The staff... More

Good location...right on the river, can view Kruger on the other side. A busy township right across the road...but never any issues from that. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They did mix up the reservation a bit, as we had paid in full in advance...but thankfully I had printed off all transactions, and that was resolved. We were in... More

Spent 3 nights here. We were initially dissapointed that it was so close to the road and a built-up area, that a "luxury" room was very basic, that we were not able to order lunch, even though it says in the booklet that we could and that the dining room is a bit cramped. But... Food is really, very good... More

The lodge and its surroundings are beautiful and looked after. The river is a nice addition, and when it's not too cold having some nice wine on the deck is lovely. Down side: Our room was very basic as well as a bit small, and it was also located in the least nice corner of the place in terms of... More

We stayed here for 4 nights while exploring Kruger and I have to say we loved it. We stayed in a room which was great bed was comfy, shower was super powerful which we love and we both slept like babies. The food was brilliant, I must admit when you see the menu and there is only a few things... More

The Sabie River Bush Lodge is fairly close to one of the gates to Kruger National Park. That makes it attractive. And it actually is on the river. But remember that you will be sleeping in permanent TENT type shelters. The floors are concrete, the furnishing are all there, but the walls are a TENT and if your neighbors decide... More

This place is ideal for visiting the Kruger Park and entering via the Kruger Gate. We stayed in the cheapest available, i.e. a Safari Tent and can therefore only comment on that particular accommodation. The tent comprised of only the bed and 2 side-tables, 1 chair, no packing or hanging space, you live out of your suitcase. Your private kitchen... More
