The Sabie area was popular as a camping and resting place for hunters and explorers long before the discovery of gold. The Sabie river, originally known as 'ULUSABA' (the river of Fear) flows through the town. It obtained its original name from the raging waters and many crocodiles in the river. Sabie is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains, Mount Anderson 2284m and Mauchsberg 2115m tower above the town. Gold was discovered in Sabie by H. T. Glynn during a shooting practice with friends, when a stray bul1et chipped a rock, revealing gold. This led to the discovery of a rich reef and the establishment of the town of Sabie. Initially the indigenous trees were chopped down for use as props in the mines, but fortunately commercial tree planting had been started as early as 1876, which proved useful as the inevitable shortage of timber was soon apparent. The continued planting of Eucalyptus, Black Wattle and various Pines has led to one of the greatest man made forests in the world and one of the biggest sawmills.
