 Road into Sabie from Hazyview

Sabie, South Africa, sits in beautiful hilly, forested surroundings and is a terrific base from which to explore Kruger National Park, sixty-four kilometers east; Blyde River Canyon; and the Panorama Route. There are several waterfalls in the area to discover with beautiful views from Long Tom mountain pass, nine kilometers southwest on the road to Lydenburg.

The town itself is small enough to discover on foot and is full of history. A late-ninteteenth-century gold rush established the town, and there are still a few of the old buildings standing, notably the Trading Store. The Trading Store was built in the twenties, St. Peter's Anglican Church was dedicated in the early twentieth century, and the Huntingdon Residence was built in the late nineteenth century. The tourist office in Market Square is very useful for local maps and helpful advice; you can also check online for information on walks, hikes, and biking routes in the area. There are two supermarkets, several international ATMs, and plenty of accommodations for all budgets (including Sabie, South Africa hostels). Sabie even has its own brewery, producing hand-crafted beers. Tours around the brewery are available, but book in advance, as they need a minimum of four people.

There has been a bit of upheaval as far as backpacker places are concerned in Sabie. Recently, one of the long-running Sabie, South Africa hostels has closed and is now up for sale, due to the death of the owner. However, another Sabie, South Africa hostel that closed in a few years ago has now reopened on its previous site to fill the void. Sabie really does need a backpackers' because of its location, so chances are there will always be a Sabie, South Africa hostel open here. Because of this, it's probably best to book your Sabie, South Africa hostel well ahead of your arrival in this case.
