We stayed in a perimeter chalet at Lower Sabie, which is always the best, if you can get one of these. As this is the most popular camp in the south, it is hence the busiest. The perimeter units have been completely rebuilt, and whilst the interior and bathroom are spacious and modern, no consideration has been given to the...

I've been visiting Kruger every year for the past 10 years and the one camp I haven't stayed at before was this one. Most of the time we camp but due to logistics we had to stay in a bungalow. The location of the camp is excellent for game viewing. The restaurant deck overlooks the sabie river and it's just...

WE booked well ahead, and requested adjacent bungalows with river views, we got this. The bungalows were like the rest of Kruger Self catering - functional and clean but not too flashy. The Braai was nice and close to the kitchen which made it easy in the evenings. The perimeter huts mean you can hear the Hippos cavorting in the...

I booked because of these good reviews on trip advisor and found it exactly the same as the over all reviews. I got the Bungalow number 3 with 3 single beds. The hut was very comfortable with a complete kitchen unit with all the necessary crockery. Every hut was given a separate BBQ so we had our own Braai there...

I had heard a lot about this camp, the location is one of the best and the camp is not too big. The accommodation we were given was not the best unfortunately, but it was good enough for 1 night. The room feels a bit old and not maintained properly, but at least it is spacious and clean. I would...

Enjoyed the game safari and the restaurant on site but the accommodation was sub standard. Run down. old, needs a complete upgrade if all the rooms were the same as ours. Government run so I guess that explains the reason as happens in many government owned assets in countries around the world. Pity as it is a great location by...

Second camp of our stay, and have to say vast improvements to 18 months ago on our last visit. Whole staff attitude had improved, very welcoming and friendly and fast check in service. Chalets again standard fare, maybe a little more worn than in previous years, but some had been renovated. Good choice of food & drink in shop to...

Stayed for six nights in March 2015. By far, the most practical of the restcamps at Kruger National Park. The restcamp is about one hour's drive north from the Crocodile Bridge gate. Some of the best animal viewing is along the roads between Crocodile Bridge and Lower Sabie, so, this restcamp is very practical for good game drives. There is...

Lower Sabie has a beautiful position. It is wonderful to hear and see the hippos and buffalos while enjoying a braai. However the accommodation we had was run down and tired. We stayed in 2 chalets both on perimeter. In the first one the bars around the outside kichenette cupboards were not really strong enough and the baboons stole our...

We stayed there for two days and it's quite good, much better than the other restcamp we stayed, it's clean and spacious. Furthermore, the animal around this area is also easy to spot, strongly recommended.

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
