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.
