I will definitely be staying at this establishment again. It was clean and relaxing. The kids enjoyed it and we even saw an elegant and a hippo from our balcony. Was one of the nicest holidays we have ever had.

This is a lodge fronting the Sabie river (though the drought has made the water very low and look more like a stream). There is a pool fronting the river with deck chairs and we have met quite a few guests relaxing there. This is an okay lodge convenient for anyone visiting Kruger Park although we saw other nice lodges... More

Beautiful cottage at the Sabie river, nice restaurant, very friendly staff. At night you can sit by the pool watching (hopefully) the hippo's. Very good safari, good driver. Only minus is that there is no fridge in the cottage.

We had a great stay with fantastic service from very friendly staff. Great food with a super atmosphere really enjoyed the Saturday night braai. Idealy situated 18 km from Kruger Gate with safe parking. Appreciated the car cleaning. Only possible improvement if any is a bar fridge in the room. But not really an issue.

the place is good, and we like the outside area that faces the kruger park, in the afternoon animals will come over and enjoy the peace with you. the people are friendly. is a good alternative if you want to avoid the sanpark lodges.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the banks of the Sabie River overlooking the majestic Kruger National Park lies Sabie River Bush Lodge, a bush lodge where you can "recharge your soul" and experience the African Bush. Situated a mere 19kms from the world famous Paul Kruger Gate and 13kms from Phabeni Gate, this is the place you want to be! Sitting on our raised pool deck enjoying great, friendly service and a cocktail with an African twist, one can view the BIG 5 and some of our smaller, yet beautiful, wildlife. With an extensive bird watching opportunity, there is no better place to sit back, relax and take in the natural beauty of the African Bushveld while all your needs are taken care of by our staff!
