Sabie River Bush lodge is a nice lodge situated outside the main gate of Kruger. As mentioned in their internal review with myself they proclaim to be a bush lodge yet are located a mere 80 Metres from the main road which is busy until after 12 and traffic begins at 4.

The setting of the Sabie River Bush Lodge is beautiful and the staff friendly and helpful. The family room advertised is tiny and not suitable for a family staying beyond one night. The weekend was overcast and cold and this lodge is totally not suitable for cold weather as it's to open and exposed. The accommodation is suitable for couples but not families.
