Loved: views from property, supply of wood for fireplace inside chalet, decent breakfast included, common lounge and games area and the very friendly and helpful staff. They offered numerous activities but can't speak on them as we didn't use any.Needs improvement: checkin/booking service, cleanliness of bathroom and kitchenette/crockery, upkeep of children's playground equipment. TV not available in individual rooms.The property was too close to the main road, so we heard mainly traffic noise and didn't get to enjoy the wonderful views and serenity which is expected from a weekend getaway in...

Things to do in and around Sabie

Mac Mac Falls

(11.3 km from Sabie)

The impressive 70m Mac Mac Falls is one of a collection of waterfalls in the Sabie area. It’s worth walking the easy 3km Secretary Bird Walking Trail from the pools and through indigenous forest.

Lone Creek Falls

(7.7 km from Sabie)

4 reviews

Lone Creek Falls is a well-known spot and is part of the waterfall route in the area of Sabie, Mpumalanga. A short 200 m walk from the parking will take you to the foot of the 68 m waterfall. If you'd like to experience the falls in solitude and...
