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!

Sabie Adventures

Abseiling

Feel your adrenaline level soar and your pulse race as you abseil down the Sabie Falls in Mpumalanga. But then feel your blood pressure drop and your heart rate slow as you take in the wonderful scenery. All trips are fully guided and all equipment supplied.

Caving

Get down and get dirty and explore the cave systems near Sabie on an escorted tour. All equipment, including overalls, helmets and candles, is supplied. Yes, candles. It’s a walk on the dark side, and chances are you will feel a little adrenaline rush as you step into the unknown.

Kloofing

Kloofing, or canyoning the Mac Mac River is just so much fun. Walking down the side of the river on the banks, jumping into deep pools and sliding down rocks is what kloofing is all about. You alternate between extreme adrenaline and extreme relaxation. The Mac Mac Falls are close to the Mpumalanga...

Paragliding

The Sabie Paragliding Launch site is called Maucberg or Sabie Ridge.  This is one of many paragliding launch sites in the area the next closest being paradise falls.  The only paragliding company currently offering tandem flights in the area is the Lowveld Slope Soaring Club or LSSC. ...

Tubing

The Sabie River has a few not too big and not too technical rapids so it’s perfect for tubing down on specially designed Gecko inflatable one-person rafts. Lots of scenery, lots of exercise, a bit of adrenaline and loads of fun.
