Latest Reviews
The lodge, especially the friendliness of the staff and its situation aside the Sabie river is excellent. Just the noise from the nearby road reminds on the close civilisation. We had a fantastic relaxing stay even if it was only for two days.
Patrick Rosenthal Mar 2019
Fantastic place, situation on the river was amazing. We got to see hippos and elephants from the comfort of our cabin porch! Level of service provided was fantastic, staff were all warm and welcoming, would definitely recommend to a friend.

Chris Eksteen Aug 2015
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.

Wakefield Wakefield Jun 2015
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.
