Eating in Sabie

There is a diversity of Restaurants in and around Sabie. The three which are  currently recommended are all within walking distance of Wayfarers.

For a very good traditional restaurant meal which also has some exotic South African dishes, try The Wild Fig Tree. You can sit inside or outside, depending upon the Weather. They are now also serving excellent Pizzas on most days, at a very competitive price. Try The Wayfarers Pizza, its a Regina with Salami, Olives and extra Mozzarella Cheese. Its not on the Menu, but is delicious! The Wild Fig Tree will no longer be open on Sundays.

Opposite is The Woodsman, with a good menu and plenty of atmosphere, and sport on large screen televisions. When the weather is good, you can eat outside on the deck. The Service  can be on the slow side, so be patient!

Another Restaurant where the Steaks, Trout and Pizzas are recommended is Merry Pebbles, on the Old Lydenburg Road, next to The Sabie River.

 

A  Restaurant which is now well established is  The African Elephant, situated where the Spur Restaurant used to be.  The food is good and prices are competitive, and the Wine List is extensive, but not expensive!. And their Service is very friendly. Look out for their Specials.


At the end of November 2014, The Sabie Brewing Company opened its Restaurant in Glynn House, just before Petenas Pancakes, as you come into Sabie. They have a number of Craft brewed beers to try, and a deck with a good view.

 

CURRENT NEWS!

 

There is a Buzz in the Air in Sabie, since Monday December 5th, The SPAR Shop has been under new Ownership and Management, and the shop has undergone an instant makeover. There is not only Stock, and Fresh fruit, but some different items have already appeared on the shelves! Good luck to Raymond and his team!

 

2016 was  another very dry Year, which was a good time to visit the area, and the Kruger Park in particular! We  were well below the Annual average rainfall, although in December 2016  we recorded 289 mm at Wayfarers, and everything is green and verdant again, although Winter was particularly cold, and very dry again.! We have had three succesive months with more than 200mm of rain, for the first tome since March 2006! Good sightings are still being reported from Kruger,so a great time to see all sorts of Animals and Birds in the Rivers, Dams and Waterholes.   There is a beautiful African Fish Eagle at Nyamundwa Dam.  At Skukuza, the Cattle Baron eventually opened its doors to the public at the end of October 2014, and we were there! It is a very impressive, upmarket Restaurant, which should please a lot of visitors from all over the World. However, if you want to be assured of a table inside, in the air conditioned area, it seems that you must now reserve a table in advance!

The Roads Around Sabie.

The road to Nelspruit, from Long Tom Pass,R37  has been resurfaced, and the roadworks are  finished. The road is now excellent, with Cats Eyes the entire distance, and all the lines are being repainted.There are no potholes for the entire distance between Sabie and Nelspruit. The Long Tom Pass is also a good road between Sabie and Lydenburg, but thereafter is not so attractive, with a lot of bad potholes between Lydenburg and Dullstroom. Take care on this stretch.

The road to White River is in good condition, and is recommended for driving at night, as there are excellent cats eyes. However there are some  potholes ,as you approach White River in both directions.

Look out for Speed Traps coming into Sabie from White River, near Harmony Hill, also leaving Sabie for Long Tom near York Timbers offices, and coming from Graskop, just by the Bridge coming into Sabie. A new place for trapping has recently surfaced, 21 kms from Sabie, on the R37 to Nelspruit.

The road to Hazyview from Sabie can be split into three sections. The first part is the Forestry section and is in surprisingly good condition,the second sector is The Plantation section, and here the road has been improved, and it is good to report that in the third segment, namely The Hospitality  section, right through to Perry's Bridge, the potholes have been repaired, but now that the rainy season is here, the potholes will have re appeared. 

In Sabie itself, there are a number of poor stretches of road. Unfortunately the Old Lydenberg road to Lone Creek Falls is,once again in a shocking state of disrepair from the fourway stop to York Timbers. Once past York Timbers sawmill, the road improves.  Kerk Street, past the Police Station is one to avoid. Malieveld Street has also deteriorated, and there are a number of potholes to avoid.

If you are lost, please phone  and we will advise you how to find us.
