Sabie


A Drakensberg mountain retreat in Sabie


Perched on the mighty Drakensberg Escarpment some 1,000 metres above sea-level, Sabie is a mecca for outdoor-enthusiasts. The town’s neighbours include pouring waterfalls, bubbling mountain streams, and one of the largest man-made forests on the globe. The area is a versatile host to the adventurous backpacker, family on holiday, and the luxury-loving vacationer. This is an ideal stopover for those wanting to explore along the way to Mpumalanga’s Blyde River Canyon and the renowned Kruger National Park.

Nature-lovers can hike up to the Lone Creek, Maria Shire, or Horseshoe waterfalls. And there’s more: mountain-bike across forested terrain, white-water raft down rushing streams, or abseil to the base of rock-faces. And be sure to grab binoculars when heading outdoors so that you don’t miss the area’s prolific birdlife.

A mere four-hour drive from OR Tambo or 45 minutes from Kruger Mpumalanga Airport, Sabie offers an array of accommodation to suit every persuasion and every budget. The town is home to a number of restaurants and its streets are dotted with craft and curio stores for those who want to take a piece of Mpumalanga home with them. Sabie is a great add-on when visiting the Kruger National Park and Blyde River Canyon.
