About The Sabie Townhouse
Greg and Kate offer guests a warm personal welcome to our lovely distinctive home, constructed of river stone and local timber, peacefully situated overlooking the stunning natural beauty of the Sabie Gorge.
Without exception, the many guests who have stayed with us comment on the uniqueness of our home and that photographs on the website do not do it justice. From the verandah you can catch a glimpse of the hyrax enjoying the early morning sunshine, the occasional fish eagle calling, pretty little sunbirds flitting from flower to flower sipping nectar, and we have even been lucky enough to have a hippo wander by or you may like to take a short stroll with a bottle of chilled wine across open bushveld at sunset to sit on the rocks and admire the gorge and river below.
The emphasis of our spacious rooms is to offer guests comfort and a place to relax and feel at home. All have a separate private entrance and the majority overlook the lush gardens. Children are welcome, so we have family suites available. We are also wheel chair friendly, pet friendly (by arrangement), and arrange special rates for larger groups. Sumptuous breakfasts are served either in the dining room or on the verandah overlooking the sparkling blue swimming pool. We offer warm and friendly hospitality a home away from home.
The Sabie Town House Guest Lodge is within walking distance of Sabie village with its selection of shops and a very good choice of restaurants.
Sabie is a small, relaxed and friendly town set among the pine covered Drakensberg mountains of Mpumalanga. Our cool mountain air is fresh and pollution free and sparkling water ensures that Sabie remains free of malaria and bilharzia. The summer climate in Sabie is delightful - warm days and cooler nights (temperatures between about 14 and 30) whilst winters are even better, with early morning mists curling through the mountains, followed by warm dry days and crisp cold nights when the stars seem close enough to touch. (Temperatures between about 8 and 22.)
Within a 10km radius of Sabie are a selection of truly beautiful natural waterfalls, some of which include delightful walks through the forests. There are many picturesque routes to neighbouring towns such as White River, Hazyview and Graskop.
Sabie is located on the Panorama Route which is one of the scenic highlights of any tour through South Africa, stretching along the escarpment it includes some magnificent tourist attractions such as Blyde River Canyon, with its famous Bourke’s Luck Potholes, God’s Window, the Three Rondavels, and the nearby historic 1800’s gold mining town - Pilgrims Rest.
Also within a short distance is the world famous Greater Kruger National Park – two million hectares offering a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa.
The park is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals. We will gladly help you plan your excursions, or put you in touch with local tour operators. At the end of your day, why not take a dip in our pool, enjoy a sundowner overlooking the Sabie Gorge whilst unwinding and reflecting on your day’s exploration and planning your next day’s exciting venture.
We strongly urge you to “linger a little longer” in our area and enjoy the popular tourist attractions and adventure activities. This is a magical area.

We had a short but great stay. The Sabie Townhouse is a very secured guest house, ideally located for doing the panorama route and moving on to Kruger Park. The garden, swimming pool and pool-house/bar were exotic and had an inviting, feel-at-home atmosphere. Very good price-quality balance and friendly staff. The Lion Room was perfect for our family of 5, however the bathrooms could do with a small refurbishment.
Absolute friendly and helpful hosts. Spacious and well-equipped room. It is an absolute insider tip for Sabie.
This was a lovely spot to stay and break up the drive between Joburg and Kruger National Park. The rooms are spacious, the breakfast is delicious, and the owner is kind and helpful. We would definitely recommend this location to others.
We had a wonderful time. A shame that we only stayed one day. It has a nice swimming pool and area to to chill near the fire. We ate at the wild fig tree restaurant great food.try the kudu steak.The breakfast could not have been better, so much choice and great banana cake.The place makes you feel like home.
