We were looking for a place to stay just outside the park so we wouldn't have to rush to the area to make the gate closing time at Kruger. This lodge was perfect for that and has a lovely location on the river, good beds, clean rooms, pretty good food, friendly service.

Choose either units 4 & 5 or the cabins as these are the best options. The view is amazing as you look directly onto the Sabie river & into the Kruger National Park. We were lucky to spot a couple of hippos whilst having breakfast. The staff were very friendly, the meals were average. Not much to do after supper,...

Had a great time, saw the Big 5 in one afternoon with Lucky, our driver/guide. Staff at the lodge were terrific. We even saw the hippo not only in the water during the day but when it came out at night to eat.

I can not say enough good things about the staff at SRBL, from the front desk, to the restaurant staff to our great safari guide Stephen, all very friendly and accommodating. Property and rooms very clean and well kept. View from the pool deck is great and very relaxing to sit out there, watching the hipos in the river while...

My wife and I stayed here on our roundtrip tour of Kruger Park from Johannesburg. The lodge is close to Paul Kruger Gate and well marked with signs. The service and staff are excellent. The food is amazing and dinner is a full course meal. We didn't arrange any game drives or activities through the lodge but they are available....

Beautiful place to stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely gardens and right on the river. Restaurant good but slightly limited menu. Sadly we were unable to get a room with a river view which would have really enhanced our stay.

I had the privilege to stay 2 weeks at Sabie River Bush lodge. Two weeks of pleasure! I booked a river frontage tent and it was fabulous. You can hear the road but never too loud to be disturbing. Looking out over the river and the Kruger on the other site. 2 crocs, some hippo’s with their laughing sounds and...

Very pleasant stay, with very pleasant, friendly and obliging staff. Avery neat and tidy Resort. I was impressed with car being washed every morning. Good Man Foster!! The Tent (2) was awesome. Perhaps the only negative points, were that the kitchen and bathroom facilities were not attached directly to the tent, but it was not a real issue, for our...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the banks of the Sabie River overlooking the majestic Kruger National Park lies Sabie River Bush Lodge, a bush lodge where you can "recharge your soul" and experience the African Bush. Situated a mere 19kms from the world famous Paul Kruger Gate and 13kms from Phabeni Gate, this is the place you want to be! Sitting on our raised pool deck enjoying great, friendly service and a cocktail with an African twist, one can view the BIG 5 and some of our smaller, yet beautiful, wildlife. With an extensive bird watching opportunity, there is no better place to sit back, relax and take in the natural beauty of the African Bushveld while all your needs are taken care of by our staff! Join us on a guided safari in our open vehicle into the Kruger National Park for a chance to get closer to the amazing animals the Kruger National Park boasts home to. ... more   less
