We booked at Sabie for the evening for a quick getaway. It was fantastic! Food and accommodation excellent. Will definitely book again! Can maybe just improve your wheelchair accessibility. No other problems!

Excellent location and staff. Very atmospheric. Beutiful, well kept grounds. Staff is excellent. No personal 'tipping' allowed, a tipbox on a voluntary basis at the end of the stay. Well stocked bar and restaurant at the Premises. Poolside clean with sufficient lounge chairs overlooking the river.

Staff were friendly, food and accommodation were excellent. Had a lovely stay there staff go the extra mile to be helpful. Stayed in the family lodge and had an amazing view of the Sabi River. Animals come to the river in the morning and evening. Close to the gate of the Kruger National Park.

We stayed in a tent and had a lovely time. Only thing that can be improved is dinner. A buffet would be perfect. Safari was very well organized a we were lucky to see a lot of game. The ranger (Lucky) was good and great fun.

The grounds are lovely, situated on the banks of the Sabie River. We saw hippo fighting one morning and spotted water buffalo on the opposite bank. The weather has been mixed... More

We came with a Group of 13 motorcyclists for 2 nights and a full day Safari in Krueger NP. Initial mix-ups with regard to our booking were expeditiously cleared up by a friendly and motivated staff. Meals and Service were really excellent. Only the guides on the Safari were not really informative and hardly understandable as they talked Little and... More

What wonderful and inexpensive place overlooking the Sabie River and close to the Kruger Gate of Kruger Park. We spent a relaxing evening here before entering the Park. Would consider staying here instead of inside the park were it not for the later main gate opening times in the morning.

Apart from being in complete need of decoration the shower and toilet stunk and our room was... More
