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.

Nice Camp site ..allbeit a bit small. We love the drives around there and Sunset Dam is lovely. We are campers with a motorhome and enjoy Lower Sabie very much.. The Mugg & Bean Restaurent is also quite adequate and the shop keep a decent selection.

The two bedroom two bathroom unit was neat and clean. However, some attention needs to be given to detail like checking that air conditioners and fans are working. There was enough play area for small children. The restaurant should invest in a generator as loadshedding has

the rest camp is nicely positioned on the south eastern part of the park and gives one the opportunity to travel short distances to other rest or picnic spots. The large deck allows one to view game with breakfast or have a long sun-downer in the afternoon heat. Staff have

Yes our perimeter bungalow did have everything we needed including cutlery, pots, dishes, etc. From what I recall, our unit had 2 beds. As for the view, ours was great but probably all the perimeter ones are pretty good. Hope this helps.

I wouldn't plan as if you'll get much sleep after you return from your early hike and get ready for checkout. I'd expect that you can take a shower to wake up, but not much more than that. There's not a whole heck of a lot to do there in the evenings anyway, so try to get your rest before your morning walk, not after it..........if possible.

The perimeter tent does not have a bathroom attached where as the luxury perimeter tents do. After booking on line I also telephoned the camp to get the location that we wanted. Be aware that the tents are not luxury. The luxury is merely that there is a bathroom attached. Have a look at the pictures that are posted with the reviews to get an idea of what they are like. I absolutely loved it because of the view and listening to the sounds of all the animals while we were falling asleep. Hope this helps. Feel free to message me if you want more info or pictures.

I tried exactly 11 months before to the day - all gone. I phoned the camp, Pretoria, and on line - but if you look at Krugerpark. Krugerpark tour. - funny they all have availability for the accomodation we wanted. The agents block book them or take options, what I'm trying to find out is when they release the unwanted ones back to SAN parks.

"Only get units with attached showers/toilets"
"river front bungalows"
"Avoid huts 25, 26 and 27."
"Choose an updated perimeter room with a river view"
"Choose a riverside bungalow. Check the camp map and arrange beforehand with the camp reception. It is so worth it!"
