Experience the joy of camping at Mackers Camping
in a setting among the mountains and indigenous trees on the banks of the Sabie River - offering idyllic charm and tranquility at its best. No swimming pool, no putt putt, no entertainment...only peace and quiet and the gentle sound of the water over the rapids.
The camping sites are 2 kms down from the main road - Our road is accessible by most vehicles in the winter months( even the little Toyota tazz and ford figo can make it down ) and hi-rise and 4x4 vehicles in the summer months, depending on rainfall and if you are towing. Perfect for 4x4 trailers/caravans and tents.
There is night security for your peace of mind.
The area offers mystical forest magic - lace up your boots and venture on one of the bush walks along the Sabie River whilst spotting the abundant bird life. Indulge in a swim in the crispness of the rapids and natural rock pools - or merely relax at your site and enjoy the tranquility of the river flow.
