The small town of Sabie is right on Mpumalanga’s Panorama Route, which means it’s in the middle of some fabulous scenery, surrounded by waterfalls, forests and gorgeous views.
There are great mountain biking trails in the forests near the town, you could do an abseil down the Sabie Waterfall, go kloofing (canyoning) in the Mac Mac River, play a round of golf at the Sabie River Sun, or go for a walk.
Sabie is at one end of the long, steep, Long Tom Pass, which is fun in a car and challenging on a bicycle (uphill, anyway). It also has some great views.
Sabie is close to the Kruger National Park, so it’s a good place to base yourself for a few days of game viewing.
Sabie is a pretty little town with a lovely Herbert Baker-designed cathedral, a pleasant square and – in case you decide to ride in – a hitching rail outside the bank.
