What a wonderful experience from the accommodation, to the food to the service. We were a team of 5 adults and 2 children and we all felt the same way about our stay. The staff consistently went out their way to make our stay here the best that it could be Even waking up to our cars washed and clean for the day. The tented rooms was luxury camping and very enjoyable. Will definitely be coming back here on our next Kruger Park trip.

I knew nothing about booking a safari holiday and arriving at Sabie River Bush Lodge was more luck than judgement but we certainly fell on our feet. Our room was amazing with its traditional thatched roof. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The view from the restaurant and decking were stunning. We had a great 4 day stay and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation just outside Kruger.
