Spent a long weekend at Merry Pebbles in Sabie. It was a wonderful four days to relax and watch the wildlife. My husband done some fly fishing an I watched the resident otter fishing. Camping facilities are very clean and each spot has its own power point. Ablutions are clean and well maintained. The little shop is well stocked and... More

Lot's of great waterfalls to view in the Sabie surroundings, horseriding at Grant (Yorkdale stables) is lovely and the Blyde River Canyon is stunning. The house where we staid was clean and spacious, we didn't miss a thing.

Our stay at Merry Pebbles was really relaxing, we will definitely return. The biggest attraction for us was the mountain bike trails in the area. Our only complaint is that the hot water was not really hot, I suspect they run a solar heating system, which will be sufficient in summer, but not really in winter.

Stayed in the lodge with family and friends. The location is awesome, close to attractions and activities. Enjoyed the lodge facilities such as heated pool, volleyball etc. Reception and restaurant staff were very friendly. However, the rooms were quite cold due to winter, no sufficient heating provided which affected the sleep quality. Cleanliness and room service can be improved. Nevertheless,... More

We stayed in one of the large 3-bedroom houses in the campground. As far as accommodation goes, the house was adequate, basic, and average. It was quite cold, and even though we had the fire going, it didn’t really warm the house up much. The place was roomy and bright with a full kitchen for self catering. The best thing... More

We stayed at Merry Pebbles 8th and 9th July in the Plettenburg unit. The resort has a beautiful setting and the amenities seem adequate ( we weren't able to use all them due to it being winter and our sight seeing expeditions ). My advice though is to not use the Plettenburg or trailer type units if you have a... More

Very pleasant resort. Be sure to check the accommodation type before booking, we initially had a Plettenburg unit which is quite small for a family of 4. The manager at the reception had no problems upgrading us to a larger unit on the afternoon of check-in, the unit is called a Tulbach. The resort is very well maintained, and although... More
