We stayed in small one bedroom houses, with a kitchen, washroom/shower and bedroom. It had a small porch with a table so you can eat outside. It was a decent size for two adults. There is no toaster and we would have enjoyed having one for toast in the am. The cutlery and dishes are very sparse so you have... More

We spend a couple of nights at one of the 3 sleeper chalets close to the restaurant. The chalet was reasonably well equipped but needed a good clean, especially above eye level. There were also no hand towels and we had to request these.

My boyfriend and I opted to stayed in a safari tent at Lower Sabie Rest Camp during our visit to Kruger. Situated at the perimeter of the camp, the tent overlooked Lower Sabie River providing us with an excellent view of grazing river animals from the comfort of our porch. Inside, the tent was spacious, clean and equipped with basic... More

Of all the camps in the Kruger, this camp has the loveliest of locations. Book a room on the perimeter overlooking the river, the extra money is well spent! Clean rooms and well-manicured gardens makes this camp a delight to stay in. Mugg & Bean has lovely location in this camp overlooking the river with its resident hippos and a... More

My boyfriend and I recently did a Kruger trip and stayed at Lower Sabie for the first time. Upon arrival to our unit it was immediate disappointment. There was construction going on and we received no warning, neither were we offered a discounted rate- instead of listening to the beautiful sounds of the bush we got to listen to hammers... More

If we can, we will be back. We had #12 a BD3U on the river. The bungalow was large & great for 2 people – although it sleeps 3. Clean & very well kept. While the restaurant - Mug & Bean - got old really quick, the rest of our stay was great. An afternoon game drive was very good... More

Have been a regular and happy visitor to Kruger and several other Sanpark sites for nearly 35 years now and have only ever had cause to complain about the condition of toilets at one lookout point. Generally we have found accommodation to be between acceptable and good.This trip however was badly marred by our three nights in a tent at... More

There was a Mug 'n Bean restaurant. During our dinner, we heard a lot of hippo noises from the nearby river. We saw a lot of wildlife near the camp. The tents were situated quite isolated in a quiet area of the park (except for hippo noises) There was cold water in the fridge on arrival.

This accommodation should be booked well in advance. If you want a good view then I suggest a perimeter unit is good value for money. All items are provided in the units kitchen. Take a good torch so you can spot small nocturnal animals along the fence line as well as hyenas. Rooms are mosquito proofed.

We were impressed by SANParks' facilities overall, and Lower Sabie was no exception. The store was well-stocked and reasonably priced, the pool was clean (but cold!), and the employees we interacted with were professional and friendly. We stayed in a perimeter safari tent for three nights and were completely thrilled with the experience of braaing on our porch while watching... More
