    We had an excellent three days stay in the lodge, on one of the Cabins near the river. The location was very good , near Kruger park. The staff was incredible friendlly and helpful. Sabie river bush lodge is a small and peaceful area. The resturant was cosy and had good food and drinks. we highly recomend to stay at Sabie River Bush Lodge.

    The bush lodge is located just outside the Kruger Park, at 20minutes drive from the paul kruger gate. The location is perfect, the adjacent to the river with a big terrace with fireplace and lots of chances to see game from there.

    We stayed in Bungalow 1, a very comfartable 2 bedroom cabin overlooking the Sabie River and the egde of the Kruger park, durring our 3 nights stay we saw Buffalo, Elephnats, a Mogoose and various birds from our deck. The lodge has well trained friendlly staff and a morning drive with Lucky is a well worth the early rise and money, we saw all the big 5 by 08h30 hrs!!! WHich left him a tough task for the rest of the morning..... the lodge is 15 minutes away from the Paul Kruger gate and have got our bearing we took advatange of our rental car and took a second in a visit the next day, which again was extremely rewarding. we worth trip.

    Great place. We did not stay long, but it was enjoyable all the same. To be recommmended. Good value for money and a good place to hang out after a long trip from johannesburg.

    What a wonnderful and inexpensive place overlooking the Sabie River and close to Kruger Gate of Kruger park. We spent a relaxing evening before entering the park. Would consinder staying here instead of the park were is not for the later main gate opening times in the morning.

    All perfect, structure wonderful, neat,clean and comfortable. The view of the animals on the river was a suprise, the pool and the restaurant a gem. And finally the fire in the evening................................... African experience to be repeated.

    We stayed here for two nights during our SA round trip. The lodge is located directly to Sabie River with nice view to the Kruger park. In the evening we could watch some hippos looking for food at the river.

    The staff is very kind and the rooms are very beautiful and clean. Also the food was very delicious.

    The lodge has its own game drive agency. We took park in the morning drive and could see all the big five during this tour. It was very great.

    Thanks alot for this nice stay. We'd come again :)

    The following sums it all up, all with marks out of 10- Staff, location,accommodation, welcome, food, ambiance, cleanliness, room size and comfort and last but not least value for money. Basically there are no 9s out of 10 here. We will be back and hopefully this review will help others to have the sort of wonderful stay we had. Many thanks to Sabie.

    We spent two night at Sabie River Bush Lodge. We stayed in a river facing luxury room and this was nice, though bit outdated, with nice views on the garden, pool and river. The best feature of this hotel i s the terrace overlooking the Sabie river and Kruger Park. On the first night we saw Elephant s, Buffalo's, Hippos and lots of birds, while having a glass of wine on the terrace! incredible experience. The breakfast was really good with an extensive buffet. Dinner was correct for the price you pay. We would recommend this place as it is well situated near to Kruger gates and has a nice terrace (deck) with stunning view

    I'll go back..... Sleeping in a luxury tent with storm, lighting and thunder (fortunately the tent was strong enough:) ) and the sound of dozens of animals is a very special experience. A hypo splashing through the water in the middle of the night, a buffalo at your fence in the evening, elephants passing through at the other side of the river. We had it all :)

    The resort is directly next to the Sabie River with great chances of spotting game. we weren't there at the right time but other people saw approximately 15 elephants and other animals at the river.

    Absolutely perfect start to our visit to Kruger. We had optional evening and full day guided tours into the park. Our deluxe tent was delightful. We had the end unit which was private and had a deck overlooking river. Food was great. Pool was pleasant. And enjoyed visiting with other guests around evening bonfire

    We had a wonderful stay at Sabie River Bush Lodge! We stayed at the river frontage bush tent and its pretty worth it! We saw about 20 elephants, Buffalo and hippo fro our balcony in the evening passing by the river. This was an amazing experience! We had a private bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower. Tent was clean.

    Kruger Gate is about 20/25 minutes away. We booked a full day drive, it was amazing. We all saw the Big 5 ( even lions hunting Buffalo!), cheetahs, zebras and so many else. This was awsome!

    A beautiful Lodge, great position right opposite the Kruger. Saw a family of Elephants at dusk come for food and water, Magic. Lovely room, friendly staff and great food. Wish had stayed longer.

    It was our first stay at Sabie River Bush Lodge and it was wonderful. Unfortunately we had only one night to stay. It is very close to Paul Kruger Gate so you can do self-drive at well or you can book a full-day or half-day trip to to the kruger National park at reception from Sabie River Bush Lodge. We stayed in a tent with a stunning view over he garden, the pool and directly into the bush, we always saw some Elephants near the fence. The accommodation is not knew but totally clean. The restuarant has a perfect African style and nice breakfast, lunch and dinner! Hope to come back for some days more!

    I absolutely love this hotel. Being able to look over the river into the Kruger was of elephants visiting the river at dusk, a real treat. Room was lovely and very clean. Food excellent and staff very helpful. Even cleaned our car without being asked. would love to return for longer stay.

    Great lodge located at the edge of the Kruger Park. At breakfast on the first day we saw Rhions and during lunch the second day there were elephants at the river. The accommodation is super clean and the people are really friendly.

    The family apartment/villa right on the river was clean and comfortable. The view over river was fabulous! we enjoyed watching elephant washing during our lunch and buffalo early in the morning and hippos right in front of our balcony at night. Fantastic ! the deck is a lovely place to relax the pool is a small and rather tired looking, but will cool you down. The location is great.

    My favorite place we stayed in South Africa. Nice rooms, great pool overlooking the Sabie river where we saw elephants the first day. The food was superb - this place is such a good value for money, very reasonable priced. Staff very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They even wash your car every day!!! Wish we could have stayed longer.
