Stayed for two nights and Lower Sabie by far was our favourite restcamp out of the 5 we stayed at. Stayed in BD2U Bungalow overlooking the River.The Bungalow was clean spacious with a large terraced area with outside kitchen and everything you need to cook your meal. There was also a Braai (bbq). Found it so relaxing on the terrace overlooking the river listening to the Hippo's and watching the buffalo.
We booked on the Sunset drive and sunrise tour which were both fantastic the guides knew their stuff and were very informative. Saw Hippo, Rhino, Buffalo, Elephant Giraffe etc.. The highlight was seeing Lions lying in the road on the sunrise tour amazing.Our guide was brilliant.
The Restaurant served basic and simple food which was adequate. They seem to serve the same food at all of the restcamps where there is a restaurant.
There is a well stocked shop everything you would need for your stay. We were surprised at how well socked the camp shops were.
The pool was excellent and great for a refreshing dip after a long days drive.
Couldn't fault this restcamp it was great and would definately return.
- 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
