First off, this wasn't the most posh of accomodations, nor did we anticipate it as such, so it did the job. We stayed in a perimeter rondavel (thatched roof) with an outdoor kitchen. We did some grocery shopping both at the grocery store onsite and at a local store in hazyview before we entered camp. We loved being inside the park and the rangers at this camp, notably Marte, are top notch. We did several sunset drives and a bush hike with Marte and she is by far the most memorable part of staying at this camp, along with barbecuing on the braai outside and hearing the hippos bellow from the sabie river. We traveled off season in March and it was great. Would absolutely stay here again.
- 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
