The Sabie Town House
Greg and Kate offer guests a warm personal welcome to our lovely,
distinctive home, constructed of river stone and local timber, peacefully
situated overlooking the stunning natural beauty of the Sabie Gorge. Without
exception, the many guests who have stayed with us comment on the uniqueness of
our home and that photographs on the website just do not do it justice.
From the verandah you can catch a glimpse of the busy little resident sunbirds sipping nectar from the strelitzias and hibiscus in the garden, hyrax enjoying the early morning sunshine, amongst the natural rock outcrops, the occasional fish eagle calling and we have even been lucky enough to have a hippo wander by! Or you may like to take a short stroll across open bushveld to sit on the rocks and admire the magnificent gorge and Sabie River below.
The emphasis of our spacious rooms is to offer guests comfort and a place to relax and feel at home. All have a separate private entrance and the majority overlook the lush gardens. Children are welcome, so we have family suites available and we are wheelchair and pet friendly (by prior arrangement). Sumptuous breakfasts are served either in the dining room or on the verandah overlooking the swimming pool. We offer warm and friendly hospitality
The Sabie Townhouse is within walking distance of Sabie village with its selection of shops and a very good choice of restaurants. We also serve hearty home cooked dinners on early request. Sabie is a small, relaxed and friendly town set among the pine covered Drakensberg Mountains of Mpumalanga. Our cool mountain air is fresh and pollution free and sparkling water ensures that Sabie remains free of malaria and bilharzia. Why not try your hand at catching a wild trout in the Sabie River while surrounded by towering majestic mountains?
The summer climate in Sabie is delightful, warm days and cooler nights (temperatures between about 14 and 30) whilst winters are even better, with early morning mists curling through the mountains, followed by warm dry days and crisp cold nights when the stars seem close enough to touch. (Temperatures between about 8 and 22.)
Within a 10km radius of Sabie are a selection of truly beautiful natural waterfalls, some of which include delightful walks through the forests. There are many picturesque routes to neighbouring towns such as Hazyview and Graskop.
Sabie is situated on the Panorama Route which is one of the scenic highlights of any tour through South Africa. Stretching along the escarpment it includes some magnificent tourist attractions such as Blyde River Canyon, with its famous Bourke's Luck Potholes, God's Window, the Three Rondavels, and nearby historic Pilgrims Rest.
Also within a short distance is the world famous Greater Kruger National Park - two million hectares offering a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. The park is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals.
We will gladly help you plan your excursions, or put you in touch with local tour operators.
At the end of your day, why not take a dip in our pool, enjoy a sundowner overlooking the Sabie Gorge whilst unwinding and reflecting on your day's exploration and planning your next day's exciting venture.
We strongly urge you to "linger a little longer" in our area and enjoy the popular tourist attractions and adventure activities. This is a magical area.
