Great place for caravaners, campers and simple chaleters alike. You are right by the river where you can pick up some trout for dinner with a bit of fly-fishing. The ablutions and wash-up place are always neat and the whole place is really well maintained. Town is in easy reach and the waterfalls and forest are just a short hike... More

The facilities and grounds are beautiful, tidy and well kept. However, the self-catering accommodation is shockingly bad. The utensils, bedding, carpet and even the curtains is something to be ashamed of. I will not recommend the chalets at all. Wonderful holiday/weekend break if you bring your own tent/caravan. Perfect for a family holiday break.

Very good although whilst making reservation I requested information on where to purchase a birthday cake for my daughter on 3 separate emails and not once was the cake request acknowledged. That being the negative the rest of the stay was enjoyable-kids loved it!

We have stayed here many times and will go back again, we had one of the chalets right on the river where we caught rainbow trout for the braai (bbq). There's plenty for adults and kids to do, hot and cold pools for swimming, bikes for hire, games room, play areas, tennis courts and more. A shop and restaurant also... More

Very good place for relaxing. Friendly reception, easy to access seeing spot, good restaurant foods. If I am allowed to wish so much, it's better to set signage to lead visitor easily from Sabie central.

What a lovely venue with good accommodation, however, we arrived late and searched for 20 minutes to find the chalet which is not visibly numbered. The bath is terribly stained and when brown water entered through the pipes, I realized " no small wonder". After checking after sunset, we had to find out you need to collect your braai grid...
