We luckily got an open space at the restcamp for the night saving us the trouble of exiting and entering the game reserve. The camp is laid our next to the Sabie river with the chalet having a lovely river view with hippos snorting. The chalet was clean but very smelly with bat dropping on the outside patio and kitchen area. Apart from this, the game reserve is always a pleasure to visit. It was a pleasure to see that the restaurant area is now contracted to a M&B franchise. Although recently established the service was good and the food was as can be expected from any similar franchise. It will be delightful to us to see other camps like Skukuza also going this route as our experience with the locally run facility is not commendable.
- 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
