Best price-quality ratio we have seen in the region, the food at their restaurant is excellent and the lodge offers a unique terrasse and a pool from where you can actually watch some animals of Krueger National Park.

We stayed in one of the riverfront tents and it's nice and clean, and the view is beautiful. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We loved the new upgraded bathrooms!!! , but was missing a plug for the hairdryer. This was our 2nd visit and we will definitely go back again.

We stayed two nights this month at this lodge. We really liked our stay. We had one of the cabins that overlooked the Sabie river. We saw hippos there both evenings. The quality of the food, lodging and overall experience was very good in relation to price.

We visited Sabie River Bush Lodge on one of their excellent value 3 day full board and game drive packages plus we added on an extra day to visit the Blyde River Canyon. We stayed in a deluxe room, which we found to be adequate and clean. The food was very good and the drinks were very reasonably priced.
2 huge hippos visited and stayed for many hours in the river directly in front of the lodge whilst we were there and I believe elephants were there the day before we got there.
The staff were brilliant and fantastic ambassadors for South Africa, Kruger and the owners and managers of the lodge. The policy of not tipping individual staff was very fair to all, but like us you can leave a collective tip in the tip box on departing.
The game drives were beyond expectation and we viewed the big five + over the 3 days. It was a bit cold travelling to the Paul Kruger gate, so rug up before hand. The guides were very qualified in the flora and fauna of South Africa and could spot animals and birds of interest from quite a distance in the dense bush.
The only slight criticism is the room was quite cluttered with furniture and since we had a huge amount of luggage after a 4 week cruise the room looked as if a our teenager grandchildren lived there. It may be of benefit to the owners if they stayed a night in each room to improve the efficiency of their rooms at a minimal cost.
Well done Sabie River Bush Lodge. You are a credit to the tourist industry and South Africa.
