Cold & Wet weekend in Sabie

Cold & Wet weekend in Sabie

Post by DeonP on 27th April 2010, 18:43

Just got back from a really great weekend in Sabie despite the COLD & WET weather.
Stayed at the Woodsman in Sabie again.
Wonderful friendly atmosphere with great accomodation and wonderful food.
We went to look at the Soccer Stadium in Nelspruit. Just not sure they know it is happening SOON as it doesn't look complete.



Shawn, the architect, ofcourse noticed that the orange pillars are giraffes
Look carefully at pics above
The famous bike hanging from the rafters in the pub at the Woodsman

Fun sign outside the Woodsman

Secure parking at the Woodsman

Very beautiful church in Sabie

Stopped off in Pilgrim's Rest for lunch at the Stables - really worth a visit. Great food. Run by the same family of the Woodsman. Parked our bikes in front of the Museum.
More people looked at our bikes !


Always nice to go away, but always nice to come home !

Welcome back and thanks for sharing. It was at that same Woodsman pub that we had to stop in the middle of the Sabie GS challenge (en route to the lunch stop) to have a beer or two!

Thanks DP for a fantastic weekend and cool photo's
We should now qualify as offroaders with all the potholes we had to deal with and the state of the bikes

The-city-previously-known-as-Nelspruit narrowly missed losing its 4 SWC matches because the stadium pitch wasn't on program.
At 100 days to go, it was bare again - the previous two attempts to get the necessary grass quality failing (cutting corners using mixed seed?)
Then the FIFA pitch consultant personally got on the tractor and showed them how to do it - with the required rye grass seed.
On 10 March it looked like this inside:


"Not too shabby eh, Nige...?"

Judging from the outside though, they may need to hire in some surplus Sandton "Mom's taxi" 4x4's
...to ferry fans from the street to the entrance gates !

From what I understand the construction is done.. only cleaning up left.. and another month to do that.
Apparently parking facilities for only 5000 cars - there will be a depot/bus system from where spectators will be transported to & from the stadium.

Smile hijack off.
