Sabie Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 56 photos

The town of Sabie is in a region known as The Escarpment, part of the Drakensberg mountain range. It was where we spent our first night in South Africa. It's about a 4 hour drive east of Johannesburg, and is a convenient stop if you're on your way to Kruger National Park. Sabie itself is a small town with few attractions of its own, but there are a number of hotels, campgrounds and a few resorts due to its convenient location. Nearby are dozens of waterfalls, and the panoramic, scenic vistas of Blyde River Canyon.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet small town, close to great views, and Kruger; nice hotels!
  • Cons:nothing bad here
  • In a nutshell:Great place to stop on the way to Kruger! Worth at least a couple of days.

    SA is such a beautiful country. It's on my wishlist, you bet! God's window sure is a great viewing spot.

    Wow, that lodge does sound and look like a great place to spend a night or two!
