We stayed in a perimeter view chalet. Nice outlook over the Sabie river . Room functional but needed a refurb. Clean and well looked after. The Mugg and Bean caters for a lot of people and is now a smooth efficient operation. Ate breakfast there often and thought it was the best M and B in the park. Fantastic view...

I stayed at LS for 2 nights in a perimeter (riverview) bungalow BD2U. Last trip, we also stayed in a LST2U safari tent. The view from both is fantastic and you can hear the wildlife at night (hippos, hyena etc.) and great place to enjoy the sunset, and if you are still in camp, the sunrise (with a morning coffee)....

We stayed at Lower Sabie for two nights during our stay in Kruger. It was one of the more popular camps because of its location on the river which drew a lot of animals in. From the restaurant alone we saw hippos, crocodiles, elephants, and water buffalo. Even booking 6 months in advance the bungalows with bathrooms were already all...

Lower Sabie has some of the best wildlife in the Kruger Park. However, the bungalows are poorly maintained. They appeared to be old and dirty, with a very loud aircon and almost no water pressure. Unlike other camps you have no privacy from other guests as you and your neighbour stare right at one another due to the bungalow design.

The Crocodile Bridge entrance to Kruger Park up to Lower Sabie Restcamp is loaded with wildlife, including the predators (big cats, hyena, wild dogs). Early (as soon as the gates open around 6-6:30 am) on the road viewing is necessary in this popular part of Kruger Park. One morning, I left Lower Sabie Restcamp at around 6:45 am drove 5...

If you want animal sightings with minimal effort, base your stay in Kruger Park in this camp. Even sitting at the restaurant you can watch buffalo, giraffe, elephants, crocodiles and hippos all enjoying the Crocodile River. Then, once on the road, the animal sightings increase. The camp books far in advance, so plan ahead. There are several types of accommodation...

Amazing location in the banks of the river. Restaurant and shop facilities of the highest standard. An early morning game walk with Travis and Dingaan was just incredible. The knowledge, expertise and passion found nowhere else. A real asset to the Park. Well done

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...

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
