The Lone Creek River Lodge is situated in the town of Sabie on the Drakensberg escarpment in Mpumalanga, South Africa. The Lodge overlooks the Sabie River and the Sabie River valley and is close to the main attractions of this region, for example, a number of waterfalls, the Panorama Route, Pilgrim’s Rest and the Lowveld with the Kruger National Park and a large number of private game reserves.
The Lodge is a complex of different accommodation options. The Main Manor House offers five comfortable rooms, each with an en suite bathroom and a balcony overlooking a fresh water pool, the gardens and the Sabie River. The eight Timber Lodges and the main Manor House are located on either side of the scenic road leading to the Lone Creek, Bridal Veil and Horse Shoe Falls. The Timber Lodges provide family accommodation for adults with children. Eight suites are situated on the banks of the Sabie River.
The Lodge has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The wine cellar boasts the finest of South African wines.
In our opinion the timber lodges are a good 3-star level option, especially for families. We would grade the suites at a basic 4-star level. The units, while not luxurious, offer lots of space, good privacy and a great location - fronting onto an expansive lawn and the Sabie River - really a large stream this close to its source. A timber pedestrian bridge across the Sabie River gives access to miles of hiking paths, most of which is suitable for mountain biking as well.

The scenic Panorama Route, with various viewpoints, runs along the top of a section of the escarpment between the Mpumalanga Highveld and Lowveld. It offers incredible views, we strongly recommend it. The Route may be approached from Ohrigstad or from the logging town of Graskop.
The Blyde River Canyon is located in Mpumalanga - South Africa, just north of the town of Graskop. It is the third largest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon (USA) and the Fish River Canyon (Namibia). It is the largest green canyon in the world.
The village of Pilgrim's Rest in Mpumalanga Province exists because of the discovery of alluvial gold in the small stream in the valley where the village was later founded. The discovery was made in 1873 by Alex 'Wheelbarrow' Patterson. He was a gold prospector (panner) and arrived in the area with all his belongings on a single wheelbarrow.
