Bert, I saw a nice communal boma (completed) and pics of it somewhere, in the area of the EH huts around number 36 - the ones near the camping area. Cannot remember about the paving :redface:

Hi - everyone, I'm seeking clarification regarding the BD2U and BD3U bungalows at LS. Are they both equiped with cooking utensils / cutlery ? Also, other than 2 vs 3 beds what are the main differences between the 2 types of unit.

Were planning to come to Kruger in November and would dearly love to stay a few nights at LS, as weve not stayed there before.

Hope someone can help with my questions :lol:

Thanks, Higgsie

Good day Higgsie

The BD2U's and BD3U's at Lower Sabie are fully equipped, i.e. cutlery, cooking utensils. The difference between the two is mainly the kitchen area. In the BD2U the kitchen is outside, but in the BD3U the kitchen and the third bed is a seperate room with a patio in front.

Both are very beautiful accommodation with lovely views on the river.

Warm welcome to the forum Higgsie!

Just click on each of the bungalow types and along with descriptions it shows photos of each one to give you an idea.

Hi Jarodd, if you have a look at the Map you can see the BD2's listed from about 73 upwards. Just below the BG2's

Here is the swimming pool. Not the best picture, I'm afraid.

Any mites out there able to confirm the size of fridges in EH 2,3 and 5 huts?
I think I remember under-counter size / bar size fridge in EH3 .
Just wondering if it's bigger in either of the other types of huts?
I am also wondering if EH2 huts seem particularly small inside as I've only seen from outside and they did seem to be tiny?
Many thanks if you are able to help!

hi Kite
was in Lower Sabie last week and stayed in the EH3 and EH2 huts opposite the swimming pool-they have been renovated in the last 2 years and have full size fridges-yes they are quite small but good enough for a night or 2's stay-they have built a nice communal kitchen in the middle and the braai's are also quite new.

New EH4 huts at Lower Sabie

Unread post by spargish » Fri Jan 08, 2016 10:45 am

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all had a great start to 2016.

I recently made a booking for March this year, I noticed that Lower Sabie now have EH4 huts? I decided to book the hut. Has anybody stayed in these? Where about are they ? have you got any pictures?

Thank you all

Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures but you will not regret it as it offers more than the usual huts

Yes they were opened in December. We stayed there over the Christmas long weekend. The Huts are near the pool area. They are spacious and the nice thing about them is that they have a verandah, cupboards for luggage, a sink, all utensils including pots and there is also a space in case you would like to bring a hotplate stove


Do you perhaps remember what number your unit was?

Are these huts joined together like the 3 and 5 bed huts or separate?
