We stayed in the Tents (private bathroom) with a river view. The views of the Sabie river are so lovely. Nothing beats sitting out on your private deck/balcony with a cold beer and watching the wildlife pass by. If you sit for even 10 minutes, you're sure to see animals. Then at night, sitting out and looking at the amazing... More

You don't have a lot of choice when you want to stay in the Krugerpark. The lower sabie restcamp is very, situated at a bank of the river. The bungalow where we stayed was okay, but a bit outdated. But we did have a nice night and were well rested. But it's not cheap. Outside Kruger you get more value... More

Lower Sabie is one of the bigger Kruger camps. There's plenty of choice of accommodation types for different budgets - from camping to luxury riverside bungalows. The camp has a well stocked shop if you want to "braii" or you can eat out at Mugg & Bean that is reasonably priced with a good choice of menu. The real draw... More

To describe the tented accommodation at Lower Sabie rest camp as "luxury" is misleading. The accommodation is best described as adequate with a genuine "bush experience". The tents certainly provide more comfortable accommodation than you would have if you brought your own tent. For starters they have en-suite bathrooms with really hot water and proper, comfortable beds. The fridge, an... More

We have stayed at this rest camp before but this was the first time we rented a perimeter bungalow. We did not realize that the bungalows were semi-detached and so the gentleman who snored LOUDLY in the next unit bothered us a bit. The price for a perimeter wasn't really worth it in this camp.

After a long day driving through the Kruger and seeing so much we stayed over here. It was a lovely day and the meal in the Mug and Bean was very good, overlooking the river. Our bungalow was clean and comfortable with room to sit outside and braii if we wanted to. Note for future you can take food in... More

A small group of 8 + 1 of us had our part of the bush to ourselves and it was wonderful - no crowds for us! The accommodation was a taste of real Africa for us and we enjoyed our stay there. Information about baboons and other wildlife being opportunists was very obvious and it was special for us to... More

We stayed in a double rondavel with shared bathroom. The rondavel itself was quite small but suited our needs. Everything seemed clean except for the floors which turned our socks black. We just wore shoes after that and had no problems. There was plenty of hot water in the bathrooms and i never had to wait to use the facilities.... More

Did a night and a morning safari and was amazed at the wildlife seen during them.Well ,the big 5 was over before we even reached the camp entering from Kruger gate. The accommodation was neat and well kept, the common areas beautiful and Mugg and Beans restaurant top class.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lower Sabie graces the banks of the Sabie River, one of the few perennial rivers to flow through the Kruger National Park. Visitors cannot but feel soothed by the view towards the river and the Lebombo Mountains beyond. In this rest camp, the bounty and plenitude of nature are very evident, eloquently symbolised by the most conspicuous of its numerous trees, the mighty sycamore fig, which provides generously for the livelihood of many birds and insects. Not only do these giants produce fruit at least twice a year, but different trees produce fruit at different times, extending the gifts of life over many months. Watching the endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River establishes a sense of one's own place in the eternal cycle. ... more   less
