Wild at heart

Be swept away by the glorious surrounds of the newly renovated Sabi River Sun Resort

Natural selection

Take some time out in nature at this beautiful retreat right on the banks of the Sabi River, on Mpumalanga’s famed Panorama Route. Offering you creature comforts in the midst of the splendour of the African bush, the 80 ha Sabi River Sun Resort is the perfect escape, whether you’re craving a little adventure or simply a great game of golf.

Best rest

All 60 of the cosy en-suite rooms exude the warmth and comfort associated with true African hospitality. The forest greens and earthy browns echo the colours outside, while the soft, rich textures keep the space luxurious. But you’ll never have to leave the resort’s beautiful grounds too far behind, with views that show off the best of the lush riverside location. Despite the wild surrounds, stay connected with the complimentary WiFi and DStv on your private flatscreen.

Work it out

Should you need to put in a few hours’ work, the business centre has a number of facilities on offer, including copy/fax stations, a courier and limited secretarial service. There are also several meeting rooms that are ideal for conferencing.

Out and about

Just 12 km from the Kruger National Park, it’s all about adventure at Sabi River Sun. There’s an amazing array of activities on offer, including game drives and bush safaris, tennis courts, a bowling green, squash and volleyball courts and a jogging trail. And after a long, hot day, cool off in one of the five swimming pools. Golfers can putt on the resort’s beautiful greens – the scenic surrounds and challenging course make this well-tended 18-hole fairway a regional landmark. The larger water hazards even play home to hippos and crocodiles.

Make a meal of it

Sesonke Restaurant serves up hearty, tummy-warming fare, including a variety of delicious dishes unique to Africa. The menu’s combination of innovative options and traditional favourites ensures that the whole family is happy. Dine indoors or on the terrace with its sweeping views of the grounds, immersed in the sights and sounds of the great outdoors.
