There is a small self catering kitchen unit just behind the tent and has all that you would need to cook for yourself. Their is also your own brai to use, which...

This was my fourth visit to Sabie River Bush Lodge, and I hope not the last. The log cabins are just fine for two couples, the views from the terasse are stunning even thoug the hippoes had chosen not to be at home this time! Everybody in the staff is friendly, we enjoyed talking and joking. Breakfast as well as...

Very nice hotel with great pool deck overlooking Sabie river. Nicely decorated rooms, good food (especially breakfast), cheap drinks and good service. Only problem was that internet didn´t work but we only stayed for one night.

Beatiful place and view, the outside area has a nice garden and the deck with the pool next to the river is perfect, if you are lucky yo can see animals from kruger. The service is very good, they are all very kind and helpful. Very well organized safaris, with breakfast included. Thanks we had a great experience!

After a very long drive from joburg (due to terrible traffic and many accidents) we finally arrived only to find that our requests for a couple of rooms with single beds had been ignored. This doesn't make for happy guests. Only after many many requests were the beds fixed up. I guess the most disappointing part of our visit was...

We spent four nights here in early January. I loved this property, we ended up with a cabin overlooking the river, all the cabins have great views! But honestly, even if you have no view it doesn't matter, you are barely in your room! The meals were delicious and felt like homemade, healthy food. Not the typical greasy restaurant fare....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the banks of the Sabie River overlooking the majestic Kruger National Park lies Sabie River Bush Lodge, a bush lodge where you can "recharge your soul" and experience the African Bush. Situated a mere 19kms from the world famous Paul Kruger Gate and 13kms from Phabeni Gate, this is the place you want to be! Sitting on our raised pool deck enjoying great, friendly service and a cocktail with an African twist, one can view the BIG 5 and some of our smaller, yet beautiful, wildlife. With an extensive bird watching opportunity, there is no better place to sit back, relax and take in the natural beauty of the African Bushveld while all your needs are taken care of by our staff! Join us on a guided safari in our open vehicle into the Kruger National Park for a chance to get closer to the amazing animals the Kruger National Park boasts home to. ... more   less
