The resort is now top class. All renovations done to the hotel and Chalets have ensured this to be a 5 star resort. All staff were helpful and friendly. Hippo Dam has been cleaned up and is now absolutely amazing to sit at and enjoy the wildlife. Golf course in spite of the drought is in top condition.

Excellent I love my timeshare at Sabi. It is close to the KNP and if one just wants to relax on the grounds, this is perfect as well. I love birding and managed to get a nice list just walking around the golf course

A wonderful place to stay. I've stayed there many times in the past and will, after a three year absence, definitely be back. I regard SRS as the safest place to stay in Mpumalanga. I wish I could go there every weekend.

I don't know whether our room had been renovated or not, but it was very small with nowhere to put the luggage! I believe there is a pool with hippos in it, but we didn't see it. Staff very nice, food adequate only.

Was looking forward to visiting Sabi River following the hotel renovations. Food is still of excellent quality but the a la carte menu is a little limited. Buffet is excellent. Small issues with lack of maintenance in the room but the upgrade certainly worked. Unfortunately service on the patio is still lacking at times. Nothing has changed in this regard...

Stayed at the Sabi River Sun resort for 5 nights in early March. Lovely staff, food and hotel, well kept grounds, and superb 18 hole golf course, with the added hazards of hippos and crocodiles. Everything to commend about the place, with no faults worth reporting. Well worth a visit.

Excellent family holiday but didn't see the hippos. Bit dissapointing as we walk whereby staff indicated they were. Golf excellent. Could get a bit hot but pool facilities was great. Bit far from Pretoria though

This place has an elegant and colonial feel. Location is good, took us just 10 mins to the Kruger for our game drives. Staff were always as helpful as you could want them to be. Restaurant options were good; we stayed 3 nights and found the food & menus to be above average. We were also given enormous packed lunches...
