Set in a deep valley surrounded by enormous man-made forests (some say the largest in the world), Sabie is a lovely little town for budget travellers. The area is exceptionally beautiful with myriad mountain streams, waterfalls and wonderful walks.
Sabie is close to the Sudwala and Echo Caves, God’s Window, Graskop, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Kruger National Park, a reptile park and Pilgrim’s Rest.

The town is malaria and bilharzia free.

Sabie lies on a fertile escarpment that is mind-numbingly lush year round. There are acres of plantations, orchards and forests with numerous waterfalls and hiking trails. The town is centrally situated between the Kruger National Park and Blyde River Canyon and has plenty of adventure activities to offer. The climate here is cooler than in the Lowveld so it makes a pleasant stop in summer.

Follow the Sabie River to Hazyview and with luck, you may stumble upon on a lone prospector panning for gold in the river or find a Jock Of the Bushveld plaque which marks the passage of the famous dog and his master, Sir Percy Fitzpatrick.

After exploring waterfalls, forests, canyons, whirlpools, hiking trails and caves, backpackers can settle down for the night at Billy Bongo Backpackers or relax in the great atmosphere at Sabie Backpackers before heading out the next day with their own extreme adventures and tour company.
