A range of lodging options is available from a luxurious guesthouse to family cottages, huts, bungalows, safari tents and campsites at Lower Sabie Rest Camp in Kruger Park. Lower Sabie’s accommodation caters to a variety of guest requirements and also boasts wheelchair-friendly accommodation.
An innovation at Lower Sabie has been the addition of dreamily romantic, semi-luxury 2-bedded tents, positioned so as to secure intimate privacy for each one.
Each has its own small bathroom and kitchenette, and some have the added advantage of a river view for sightseeing. Three of the tents have been adapted for use by visitors with impaired mobility at Lower Sabie Rest Camp in Kruger Park.
Visitors cannot but feel soothed by the view over the perennial Sabie River and the Lebombo Mountains beyond, which form the natural boundary and act as a highlight of the Kruger National Park. Expansive green lawns are shaded from the remorseless African sun by majestic Sycamore Fig Trees, providing the setting for a breathtaking panorama.
The Sycamore Fig Tree provides generously for the livelihood of many animals, birds and insects. Other trees in the area such as Marula, Natal Mahogany and Fever Tree flower at different times of the year ensures that the gifts of life are extended over many months.
Large numbers of game are attracted to the abundance of water, sweet grass and foliage in the vicinity of Lower Sabie Rest Camp, giving rise to a diversity of game, almost unequalled anywhere else in the Park. The area is also rich in Lion, Cheetah, Elephant, Hippopotamus, Rhino, herds of Buffalo up to 800 strong, and is known for its high density of Warthog.
Lower Sabie Rest Camp has everything you need for a successful bushveld holiday, including electric power, emergency road service, basic first aid assistance, fuel station (selling petrol and diesel), licensed restaurant, cafeteria (offering convenience food), laundromat, well-stocked shop (selling groceries, wine, beer and spirits, as well as a selection of clothing, books and curios for shopping in Kruger National Park), and picnic facilities for day visitors.
The addition of a swimming pool has proved to be a popular enjoyment of guests, especially the younger ones. Film shows on conservation and wildlife are shown on certain evenings.
