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.
