A truly unique Kruger experience - overnighting in a Kruger hide. Sable Sleepover Hide, situated approximately 10km from Phalaborwa Gate, and is a unique accommodation facility where guests get to be part of nature. A bird hide by day, it transforms into a primitive overnight dwelling by night, where a select few can experience the Kruger National Park nightlife first hand. The hide overlooks the Sable Dam where an abundance of animals gather to drink. Hear the lion roar and the hippo grunt meters away from where you sleep, and know that this is a true African experience. The hide provides the opportunity for guests to enjoy complete privacy, as it must be reserved in its entirety (minimum of 2 and maximum of 9 guests at one time). The living area contains a boma with braai (barbeque) facilities. There is no electricity. (One light, that operates for about 5 hours, is provided on request.) No organised activities are available from Sable Sleepover Hide; however, guided game walks or game drives can be pre-arranged with Phalaborwa Gate, subject to availability.
