Sable Hide


Our thoughts

The Sable Sleepover Hide is situated approximately 10km from Phalaborwa Gate in Kruger National Park. It is very basic accommodation but a great experience. Booking in advance is a must. Although they provide a torch, having your own might come in handy. We were quite excited to stay at Sable Hide – it’s an incredibly unique experience. The sounds of wildlife at night reinforced that we were in the midst of their habitat and the sense of solitude made it a memorable experience overall. We had anticipated that the waterhole would be smaller however, the sunset and treefrogs were music for our souls.

Let me tell you about my incredible experience staying at the Sable Sleepover hide in Kruger National Park. It was an absolute dream! The hide itself is simple but well-maintained, providing a cozy and interesting atmosphere for a memorable stay. Being surrounded by the beauty of Kruger National Park made it even more special.

Spending an evening at the Sable Hide guarantees an awe-inspiring adventure that will forever leave an indelible mark on your memory. Brace yourself as the sun gracefully disappears below the horizon, enchanting you with the most mesmerizing vistas of the lake. And if that’s not enough, prepare to be captivated by the magnificent symphony of roaring lions nearby. This unparalleled experience immerses you in the boundless wonders of nature, creating treasured moments that will truly echo in your heart.

We experienced the exhilaration of a night in the Sable Hide, where the lions’ mighty were roaring, which kept us both captivate and on our toes. We were in the heart of nature, surrounded by its hidden wonders, for an adventure that left us thrilled and slightly spooked. Comfered by the protective “fence” ensures that we could witness the awe-inspiring beauty of the wildlife, all while enjoying a safe and unforgettable experience. We were to be blown away by the jaw-dropping views as the sun sets that painted the sky with vibrant hues.
