I have a question, apologies if it has already been discussed.

The EH5 huts at Lower Sabie seem to have dropped off the price lists, although still showing on the latest map. Are they being converted to something else? Because I stayed in one last year and they were renovated (incl crockery & cutlery) so I am surprised to not find them available anymore?

Wilmaw, I really don't have an answer to your question to date, hopefully Roaneric our accommodation specialist will be able to confirm otherwise I will have to try and find out for you. :thumbs_up:

Hi wilmaw

That is weird. I was there in January and they were still there. No idea why it's not on the price list anymore. I will be in LS in 7 weeks time and will find out for you if you can wait that long. :thumbs_up:

Luxury Tents at Lower Sabie

Unread post by penolva » Mon Oct 23, 2017 2:31 pm

We stayed in a very 'rustic' River View tent at LS in 2015 and absolutely loved it although it was in quite poor condition. We tried to book it again for next October this morning but with all the problems with the phone lines because of two month bookings by the time we got through only the 'Bush View' luxury tent was available. We took that in the hope of a cancellation for a river view during the next 11 months. Looking on some reviews however it seems not all the tents have been refurbished and some photographs looked horrendous as they have obviously deteriorated even further since our visit.

Can anyone tell me if the renovations of the tents are completed, if the Bush View ones are worth having or should we try for a perimeter bungalow if we can get one online tomorrow or again look for cancellations. We had such a great time with our rustic tent last visit we are obviously disappointed to miss out but we got everything else we wanted after trying different phone numbers for an hour. Great help in the end from the Cape Town office. Even have 3 nights best view cottage in Biamati :) Thanks Pen

Penolva, as far as understand the tents are all to be upgraded and renovated to the luxury ones now.
I don't think they are even renting the others out if there are any still to be done, due to multiple and ongoing complaints re the condition of them.

They do look lovely and I think keep an eye on availability for a river view one which might become open due to a cancellation.

Thank you so much Elsa for the reply. I am glad they are not renting out the ones waiting for renovation. I will keep a look out in case the river view ones suddenly come on line as I notice that there are none available for months and months in the future which seemed very odd. You have given me some hope!! :gflower: :dance:
