Sabie, the tiny picturesque forestry town, is a peaceful hamlet that is conveniently situated in the heart of the Panorama Route and in close proximity to the wildlife adventures of the Kruger National Park. Known for its scenery and beautiful waterfalls, the name Sabie is derived from the Shangaan word ‘ulusabi’, meaning fearful. This description stems from the crocodiles that used to roam the Savie River, but today there are still plenty of fears that you can overcome in this unassuming little dorp. Let’s start with the fear of heights! Head out for a paragliding adventure and see the beauty from above or feel your adrenaline soar as you abseil down the Sabie Falls or go Kloofing in the Mac Mac River. For a different kind of adventure, head into the bowels of the earth on a caving adventure.
Although the town often positions itself as a stopover en route to the Kruger National Park, it is definitely worth a longer visit! So come to Sabie and endulge in a wide variety of adventures!
