The town of Sabie is situated in possible one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa. The Lowveld with its sub-tropical climate is home to green gorges and beautiful tropical fruit farms like mangoes, bananas and litchis. The picturesque town of Sabie is situated on the banks of the Sabie River. Before the town into what it is today the Sabie River was teeming with crocodiles and the local Shangaan people called uluSaba meaning fearful river. The town came into existence after HT Glynn and JC Ingle found gold in the area and formed the Glynns-Lydenburg Gold Mining Company. Today the main industry in this area is forestry and it is home to some of the world’s biggest man made forests. Sabie is about 360 kilometres from Johannesburg and approximately 60 kilometres from the world renowned Kruger National Park. Because of its relevant close proximity to Gauteng many city dwellers head out to this beautiful part of the country to escape the hustle of the city and relax in Mother Nature. For the most part this province is malaria free, but always remember to consult the relevant organisations before undertaking your journey – this is especially important for pregnant women, children and the elderly.
