The small country town of Sabie is nestled in the mountains of Mpumalanga. It is a good base from which to explore the many waterfalls, mountain streams, lofty view points and caves in the area. Sabie is also an outdoor adventurers delight as there's very little that can be done in the open air that can't be done around Sabie.
