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?

All the huts and bungalows that I have seen at Lower Sabie are either semi detached or attached in long rows or in clusters.
Maybe there are some hidden free standing ones other than the guest house or tents for us to discover, but there is not much space available for free standing!

The New EH4 huts are not newly built they are part of the old Family Bungalow (FU5) which was a 2 bedroomed 5 sleeper number 66 (see picture

Family Bungalow (FU5)
http://www.sanparks.org/parks/kruger/ca ... &resort=18

The 2 sleeper was converted into a 3 sleeper and the rounded corner which was a 3 sleeper was converted in to a 4 sleeper the Wc and shower and the wooden fence outside has been removed. There is also been a new communal kitchen that has been built facing the huts just behind the amphitheatre
(see map http://www.sanparks.org/assets/docs/par ... ie-map.pdf ) catering for huts from number 49 to 66. Its the part of the camp where there is along row of huts joined together and only the corner units are rondavels.

We stayed in number 66 which is the corner rondavel unit which had a mini kitchen and enough cutlery and crockery to cater for 6 people. There are pots an a pan no stove though.

Hope this information helps

New safari tents being built in Lower Sabie! I believe there are 5 new tents going up presently and another ten to be refurbished in the future.

Hi all. After "enjoying" 40 degree + temperatures in the safari tents last December, I am hoping to have an air conditioner this year. I would like to choose between an EH2 and EH3 (was lucky to get the EH3 today) and would like to know which huts mites prefer. In looking at the forum pictures, it seems that the EH2 are slightly more private and more traditional in feel, while EH3 are side by side like a hotel. Also, being so close to the pool, are the EH3 exceptionally noisy?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.....

Horace

Lower Sabie tents are receiving a make over - photos by Joep Stevens, taken two days ago:

Thanks DB .

Any pics and info on the new ablutions that you mention. Did they maybe upgrade the big old rondawel ablution block, that was static for a while?
And then that rectangular block south of the clover leaf huts is in dire need of upgrading.

So far I have logged 279 nights in Lower Sabie Huts and now that I am retired this will increase even more. Greatest all round value accommodation those Lower Sabie Hut 's.

Wow, that is an impressive amount of nights Shidzidzii! I am open to correction but I think there is a brand new ablution block opposite the gate to the pool. They were building it when we were there in January.
