Lower Sabie Restcamp in the Kruger National Park

Lower Sabie Restcamp in the Kruger Park is one of twelve Restcamps in the Kruger National Park. "Restcamps" are larger camps with shops, restaurants and offices. They normally also have other facilities like pools etc.

Lower Sabie Restcamp is located next to the Sabie River downstream from Skukuza which is also built on the banks of the Sabie River. A large dam was built at Lower Sabie, which offers a very good view from the restaurant's deck over the dam.

Lower Sabie is a modern camp with neat ablutions and also safari tents that are very well placed next to the river.

Places to visit in the vicinity are the Sunset Dam, Mlondozi picnic site, the Nhlambanyathi Hide, Gezantombi Dam, Hippo Pools in the Crocodile River and others.

Quite large Conferences can be held here, with all the paraphernalia like overhead projectors etc. available. Enquire at the reservations link below.

For game drives, walks, bush breakfast and bush braais, enquire at the Lower Sabie reception office when you book into the Camp.

From Lower Sabie Restcamp, turn left into the H4-2 and left again over the bridge on the H10. Turn right on the S29 and right again towards the Mlondozi Picnic Site, which is a beautiful site with a wonderful view over the veldt and the Mlondozi Dam. You can have breakfast here while watching the many animals in and around the dam.

After enjoying this beautiful place, return to the bridge and turn left towards the S28, a gravel road that is well known for its Rhinos, Elephants, Cheetahs and Lion sightings. Also keep your eye peeled for Old Duke, the tusker who broke both his tusks in a relatively short period.

On the S28, there's a left turn towards the Nhlambanyathi Hide, which can be very productive if there's water in it. It, however get dry quite early in the season, and then it is little better than just a place to stretch legs and maybe something to drink.

From the hide, carry on for some distance before turning right to make a detour to the Duke Waterhole. Then back and on via the Nhlanganzwane waterhole to the H4-2 and the Gezantombi Dam where one stand a good chance to see elephant, lion, buffalo and the other usual animals. Try to spend some time here before moving on to the S25 and the Hippo Pools in the Crocodile river.

The Hippo Pools is not far away and sometimes there is an armed guard who takes people for a little walkabout to see the views over the Crocodile river onto "Civilization".

From Hippo Pools go back to the H4-2 and turn left past Gezantombi towards Lower Sabie. This tar road is also one of the very good roads to enjoy gameviewing on. Lions, leopards, cheetah and even sometimes wild dogs may be seen here if the luck holds. Just before entering Lower Sabie Camp, go past to the Sunset Dam before coming to camp for a good campfire, a braai and drink before going to bed.


In order to help people to get to know the Kruger Park better, we wrote a book containing large pictures, short descriptions, GPS Coordinates and travel times of more than 300 waypoints like camps, picnic spots, waterholes, dams, viewpoints and other interesting points along all of the public roads of the Kruger Park

The book is written in the form of a 20-day tour, taking the reader on a virtual tour through the park, giving the reader a rare graphical oversight over the park. Use the many GPS Coordinates to enjoy a pre-visit to the different places on Google Earth to make your virtual tour even more fun!

Although it is possible to follow the routes in 20 days, few people have the time available to travel all the routes described in the book, therefore it will be a good idea to download the book and do the virtual tour and then, after that experience, to design your visit to the Park as well as the trips and places you want to see and experience. .....read more"
