We enjoyed a 3 night stay, the lodge is small and well located on the Sabie River close to the Kruger gate, we found the rooms to be adequate and very clean, all the staff are amazing, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast and dinner was great and the pool deck overlooking the river is a nice place to relax...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the banks of the Sabie River overlooking the majestic Kruger National Park lies Sabie River Bush Lodge, a bush lodge where you can "recharge your soul" and experience the African Bush. Situated a mere 19kms from the world famous Paul Kruger Gate and 13kms from Phabeni Gate, this is the place you want to be! Sitting on our raised pool deck enjoying great, friendly service and a cocktail with an African twist, one can view the BIG 5 and some of our smaller, yet beautiful, wildlife. With an extensive bird watching opportunity, there is no better place to sit back, relax and take in the natural beauty of the African Bushveld while all your needs are taken care of by our staff! Join us on a guided safari in our open vehicle into the Kruger National Park for a chance to get closer to the amazing animals the Kruger National Park boasts home to. ... more   less
