Lower Sabie graces the banks of the Sabie River, one of the few perennial rivers to flow through the Kruger National Park. Visitors cannot help but feel soothed by the view towards the river and the Lebombo Mountains beyond. In this rest camp, the bounty and plenitude of nature are very evident. This is eloquently symbolised by the most conspicuous of its numerous trees, the mighty sycamore fig, which provides generously for the livelihood of many birds and insects. Watching the endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River establishes a sense of one's own place in the eternal cycle. Guided bush walks and day and night game drives provide the perfect opportunity to experience this natural splendour intimately. Guests can also visit the Sunset Dam and Nthandanyati Bird Hide, which are located close by. The accommodation at Lower Sabie is suitable for many different guest requirements: campsites, huts, bungalows, family bungalows and a luxury guesthouse are all found at the camp.
