    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.

    Hi, I m at the Sabi River lodge at the moment on our way to the Park. Firstly I wanted to pay with Diners and was told that Diners is not accepted. We arrived early and directed to the deck and told that a waiter would come and take our order and that at 2 the keys would be delivered to us. No waiter after an half an hour. My husband had to get up and call one. 3 o'clock came nothing. I then phoned the number given by booking.com. Shortly there after the receptionist came down and apologised that she did not follow up when the cleaners were finished. it is hot as hell here and then get to the room and the aircon does not work!!!!!!! I notices that was also only a shower which I cannot use as I have an autoimmune disease. I asked the receptionist if there was a room waith a bath and shower and he said no. We are still waiting for the aircon to be fixed. NOT HAPPY!!

    Stayed at Sabie River Bush Lodge during August 2015 - I liked the layout of the well maintained property, the view from the lodge and the fact that my car was washed every morning. Great decking area overlooking Sabie River with a small pool. Occasional game views in Kruger Park, while having a drink and relaxing. Probably the best holiday I have ever had. Kruger is amazing! - Source booking.com guest reviews

    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.

    This is a return trip and I'm pleased to say that the Sabie River Bush Lodge is still on form! Wonderful stay. The river location is fantastic and a variety of wildlife can be seen across the river in the park. We saw elephants, monkeys and some beautiful birds. We stayed in tent 4, as we did last time and it was clean, comfortable and just what was needed. The staff are all very attentive and could not be friendlier. The breakfasts are very good - cereals and cooked. The evening meals were good. The quantity more manageable than most SA meals and the daily variety good. Looking forward to my next stay.

      Hi Ian great to see that you have returned to the Lodge and that you have noticed that the standards have remained the same since your first visit some two years ago. Your observation of the service standards are spot-on, we have been rewarded with our 3rd Service Excellence award from Tripadvisor for 2014, this is indeed a great achievement by all the staff and management of the Lodge. Hope to see you in the not to distant future. Regards Dale

    The lodge has a great location on the banks of the Sabie river where we saw elephants, hippo and buffalo during our stay. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent game drives with Willem and panorama route tour with the guide based at the lodge, Life Food was very tasty.

    “Wonderful stay”

    I stayed at Sabie River Bush Lodge with my husband in May 2015 for 3 nights. We had an amazing time at the lodge and on safari with William. The staff were so very welcoming and attentive to our needs. The chef went out of his way to cater to my needs (vegetarian and gluten free), the veg curry was delicious!

    We arrived here by transfer to then go to Kruger Park the following day. We had a wonderful time in this extremely relaxed setting and watching animals come to the river which was just where we had dinner. It was surreal to see these animal on the boundaries on where we were sleeping (cordoned by electric fence so don't worry) I don't think many places would have animals so close yet in the comfort of your lodge. We organised everything from here with the help of great staff with excellent customer service second to none.
    The chef here catered for our needs making delicious gluten free vegetarian and meat dishes - gourmet curry. This place had a homely cosy feel.

    Rizen who was present on our arrival was such a genuine person who was always there even on his birthday ! Darren who also works at the location was always readily available to provide us with information and ease our minds during our stay. I really can't say enough but as a seasoned traveller, the customer service ranks the best even when I compare it up market International hotels

    William took us on our all day safari and went out of his way to find the big five. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge and he took us so close to the animals that I don't think many would have. He went out of his way in making our safari an experience to remember.

    Life was always there when we needed transfer - (yes Life is his name). He is a humorous individual giving us a count down in terms of minutes to our destination. Intact Life pointed out one of the best scenes we experienced before arriving at the check point of Kruger Park. The moment was surreal when we saw at least 15 elephants cross the river guided by older male and female elephants and the true bond between these animals as they coordinated themselves before crossing. Thank you Life for your hospitality

    I definitely recommend this place if you are looking to go safari and to relax at a very reasonable prices compared the many. They take care of everything and it really does not have to be expensive to enjoy this level of service. Please tip these guys when you leave. They too have children and families but despite their struggle they will always leave you with a smile. A beautiful country with beautiful people.

    I just wanted to reach out and say that I had the amazing opportunity of staying at the Lodge in the beginning of the month.
    I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay. I was so impressed by the rate, and the value for money aspect.
    The staff were all at the right place at the right time at all times. I was shown around, and taken upstairs to see the restaurant and meet the team there. They explained the breakfast and dinner times. There was a constant staff presence, and I felt really safe.
    The bathrooms were really clean, and the water pressure in the shower was spot on.
    The tent / bedroom is really spacious and the beds SUPER comfortable.
    I thoroughly enjoyed dinner, and the presentation thereof. Again for what you are paying, it was real value.
    My cherry on the top was walking towards my car this next morning, and it was cleaned. I was blown away by that.
    Please give a very big thank you to the whole team who made my 1 night stay so enjoyable. I left a small tip at the end, and I loved your note where it states that it takes an entire team, and your team are amazing.
    Well done to you guys! It now makes perfect sense why our Guests love to stay with you.
    Kind regards

    Great place to stay near Kruger gate! Staff was incredible at every turn. They even washed our car while we were on safari. We had a wonderful talk with the owner during our stay and learned much about South Africa and the area. Dinner was included in our stay and was delicious. Wine was also available for sale. We were lucky to see the hippo grazing on the river a few times during our visit and enjoyed watching her and taking photos. Room was very comfortable and quiet. I wish we could have stayed longer to take advantage of the amenities like mini-golf and the pool! Also, we did a guided morning game drive through the lodge and our guide was fantastic! A large lunch was included in the price. Absolutely loved this lodge and would recommend! I hope to return one day!

    What an amazing oasis this place is. After driving 500kms from Johannesburg..... we stopped overnight here which was our first night stopover booked for our Safari Tour. The accommodation is clean, tidy and spacious. Our unit overlooked the waterhole and swimming pool. The meals are well prepared and great choices. Breakfast was also what ever you required to start the day. Nothing was to much trouble by all the staff, who were very pleasant and out to please. We would love to stay there again, and highly recommend to anyone on their way to the Kruger gates not that far away. Thankyou.

    I had a wonderful time at Sabie River Bush Lodge on the weekend of 12-14 December 2014. Who would forget the exceptionally great service from all the staff members! I'm already looking forward to our next holiday at Sabie River Bush lodge. The food was divine, the rooms were super clean, not to mention the aircons that served a great deal with the humid temperatures. Thank you guys!! Keep it up!!!! The food is absolutely amazing especially the fresh bread rolls that I couldn't stop stuffing my face with!! I even took one to eat on the road!

    My daughter and boyfriend stayed in a luxury "tent" for 2 nights, she was constantly "Whatsapping" me via he phone using the free WiFi.
    The comments just continued, Dad, this place is amazing, Dad the people here really look after you, Dad our accommodation is unbelievable, Dad the safari trips are incredible, we saw so many animals. And the best one from her was "I think today was the best day of my life, that elephant was about 2 steps away!"
    To all at the Lodge and the safari guides, a massive thanks for making my daughter's stay truly memorable. Candice, thank you for arranging things and for making me feel totally relaxed about leaving my daughter in your care!

    I recently had the privilege of staying at Sabi River Bush Lodge and have only words of praise for this piece of paradise.
    From the time of our arrival to the time of our departure we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were fantastic, rooms were well appointed and comfortable and the food was just great.
    We even had a herd of Elephant in the Sabi River to greet us on arrival - Thanks for organising this welcoming committee.
    To all at Sabi River Bush Lodge - Thank you for a memorable stay and I will most certainly be back!

    I just wanted to drop you a note on behalf of my parents regarding their stay last week at Sabie River Lodge.

    Once again, they thoroughly enjoyed their time there and happily recommend it to their friends.

    They specifically wanted to mention how fantastic the food was. I think on their previous visit they were a little disappointed but they couldn't stop talking about how delicious the meals were this time, especially the breads and muffins.

    Please can you pass this message onto your management team … and thanks for making my parents stay so great.

    Regards

    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.

    “Experience of a lifetime”

    Stayed for five days, went on four Kruger Park Safaris.
    Accomodation was comfortable, clean and affordable. Meals were varied each day and were good, quite large by my standards. We stayed in the safari tents overlooking the Sabi River which is in Kruger National Park. Perhaps a highlight was after returning from a safari we were sitting on the deck when over the bank opposite came at least 27 elephants of all sizes, they progressed along the river bank eating with babies suckling from their mums, next another group of elephants appeared over 40 that we could counts, these magnificent creatures stayed around for several hours, using the river to drink all within metres of where we were. The staff were great our driver "Life" was knowledgable and determined that we would see the big five, which we did plus many other animals.
    One sour note of our stay was the Manager Steve, who was quite rude and abrupt we had arranged a visit to a local hotel which was confirmed from their office only to be told we wont be taken, no explanation. At checkout costs on the bill did not tally up with what we did. A night safari, had acharge to drop us atb the Kruger gate and pick up afterwards, not mentioned till the bill.
    We had a great time, two new cabins were nearing completion, these looked like they would be family friendly.

    Good value, a great base for the Kruger Park”

    Our party of 16 descended on the Lodge for a 3 day stay.
    We had local and international guests, some of whom wanted to explore the KNP, and others the scenic beauty of the Lowveld.
    The Lodge is especially convenient for those wishing to visit the Park.
    Accommodation was good, and varied, some normal chalets, others tented and self-catering.

    Staff were very friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful.
    The setting is great, with the river flowing by just meters away, and attracting a variety of game and birdlife.
    Bar prices were reasonable, and all-in-all, it was a great start to our safari week!

    “Recharge your soul”
    What a beautiful lodge!!!!!!!! my boyfriend and I had the most amazing time here :) it was so peaceful and stunning and it made us relax so beautifully. The staff were out of this world, definitely a 10 out of 10 for the service and friendliness :) We ate dinner on the beautiful deck lit up by a huge bonfire and sipped on amarula before heading to bed early and having the most amazing peaceful sleep ever. The food was outstanding and the place really did recharge our souls. we will definitely be back and I would recommended this place to everyone... go and recharge your soul at the best place to stay near the Kruger.

    Great value for family of four, we stayed in one room but we all slept well and were comfortable.”
    We are a family of four (children 11 and13) and stayed here for 3 nights. We had a great time. We were in one room ( this wasn't clear when booking) but we were quite comfortable, we were so tired after safari we all slept well! The food was good, there was a choice of 3 starters, 2 main and 2 desserts they were very accommodating as I am vegetarian. The staff were very friendly and were helpful when my daughter was unwell. We looked at the tent accommodation and they looked good from the outside!

    “Fantastic haven”
    Isn’t it strange, you can read a review here and it makes you weary of someone. Well we spent three nights here around the Skukuza Half Marathon and we found *all* of the staff. We were SO fortunate to have a family of elephants there the first evening right on the other side of the fence It was so lovely to just watch them "being" and then to watch them cross the river.
    Lucas is also deserving of a mention - his interactions with us were pure top-notch hospitality.
    We stayed in room 10 for the first two nights, then moved to tent 4 for the last night when it became available.
    There was some "background" noise from the local township however it was not troubling and became a "white noise" until it stopped late evening.
    We will be back.

    “Perfect wedding venue!”
    What a fantastic experience! We recently stayed at Sabie River Bush Lodge with a bunch of our friends and family. During this time we also booked out the entire lodge for one day to celebrate our wedding! Organizing a wedding in South Africa from the United States can be particularly challenging, however, Sabie River Bush Lodge was incredibly accommodating and the perfect venue for our big day. SRBL took care of all the catering (awesome lamb spit included), decorations (both the ceremony and reception) as well as cocktails and other drinks throughout the day. All we had to do was show up. Although it was not required of them at all, 3 employees stayed up until midnight serving drinks (and got up again at 4am to make breakfast – and it was delicious). Patrick built a wooden pagoda for us to stand underneath while doing our vows, and planted a beautiful garden in the boma. Overall the setting is absolutely gorgeous. We had our ceremony in the boma with the guests facing the river, and our reception on the big wooden deck - overlooking the river. Stuart did an amazing job with logistics and meeting all our needs – everything from a special cupcake recipe to snack and cocktail suggestions. Candice and her team handled all the decorating and flower arrangements – we could not have asked for a more professional service and the outcome was stunning! All the staff members were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the whole weekend – they really went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant and our wedding beautiful. We have received so many compliments about how lovely everything looked and how amazing the service was – I would highly recommend Sabie River Bush Lodge not only as a stopover to Kruger, but also as a wedding venue.

    Our base for our safari at kruger park. But when you have elephants, hippos, warthogs and more just accross the river the safari comes to you. After a days spotting in the park you can sit on the decking with a beer and let them come to view you. !!. Rooms basic but clean and comfortable. Good air con as was very hot.. All you need.. food. Good and tasty. And a canny bunch serving.. a really enjoyable stay.. highly recommended. .

    We stayed at the Sabie River Bush Lodge for three nights and enjoyed our stay a lot.
    The room was very nice, the food good and our guide Kylie amazing. We enjoyed her very much and had a very good time on the game drives. She knows a lot about the Park and animals living in it. We had good laughs with her.
    All together we loved our time at Sabie River and would recommend it to friends.
    Kylie, thank your being such a great guide and understanding my love for Hippos.
    We are looking forward to our next visit.
