Here is an option that is both comfortable and new, so nothing is "holey" or broken. The luxury tents are currently far better than the regular "safari tents" that are to be refurbished in the coming months. We found ours to be well equipped with a fully kitted kitchenette, a proper fridge/freezer (not a bar fridge), a dining table inside...

For the price you pay for accommodation, it is a little tired and needs upgrading, the area along the Letaba River and surrounding game drives make this a good place to stay. Saw plenty of Hippo, Elephants, Kudu, Giraffe, Wilderbeast and lots of birds.

Lower Sabie is my favourite Kruger destination. We stay in the luxury tents, which are a little worn, but I hear they are upgrading this year (2017). The joy of the tents is the river view. Sitting outside your tent after a game drive watching the river and all the animals. You can hear bigger animals cross at nights. It's...

Lovely site with a range of accommodations to choose from. Great restaurant with amazing views overlooking the river - that was my favourite spot in the camp site! Plus it has a decent sized shop. The safari drives and the guides were excellent. We are planning to come back again!

The camp in general is great, with a nice view from the restaurant, a good organization, etc. I chose a tentes camp with disapointed me a bit but made the job: it is clean and confortable.

The Kruger National Park is an incredibly special place and after my previous review thought that management would have had sufficient years to sort out the issues. Sadly the mismanagement of Lower Sabie is now at point whereby an audit of the rest camp is needed. The manager is not doing their job properly and SANPARKS should launch a full...

After staying at Skukuza, Satara and Lower Sabie main rest camps, this is definitely my preferred camp. It has a lovely river location and is in a prime game viewing area, and did not fail to disappoint with the number and range of fantastic sightings. And for this reason it will continue to draw me back. However, like most of...

We love to visit Kruger whenever we are in South Africa. For animal sightings it really never disappoints. On this trip we witnessed (off a main road totally unexpectedly) a leopard kill as well as all of the other big 5. We always tell ourselves that you don't stay in the park for the accommodation but for the easy and...

I love Africa and I love the bush but coming home again for a visit, I really didn't expect to take up and pay for such run down accommodation in a proudly South African game park. I knew the tents were rustic which is why I chose the experience to stay 2 nights, to hear the game at night with...

I recently re-visited the Kruger (have been many times) we stayed at Lower Sabie for 2 nights in a Hut, this is fairly basic a room with 5 beds, there were 4 of us, wardrobe, sink, drawers with cutlery and basic utensils and a fridge/freezer. There were shared cooking facilities with constant hot water for tea and hotplates for cooking,...

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
