Driving into Sabie in the Mpumalanga Province, one is presented with a panorama of emerald-painted forests interspersed with waterfalls tumbling down rocky sandstone cliffs. Here, millions upon millions of trees are planted annually to replenish the great demand for paper and wood products worldwide.
Gold was discovered along the Sabie River’s edge in 1895 and Sabie can, like any gold rush town, boast of legends built, of instant wealth creation and destitution, and of unusual characters filling the history books.
Sabie is a Tsonga word meaning fearful, named at a time when the Sabie River was the domain of the man-eating crocodile.
The town is located in one of South Africa’s prettiest regions and in big game country, near to the Kruger National Park and surrounded by other renowned private game reserves.
