Lower Sabie Restcamp - Kruger Park is some 35 km from Crocodile Bridge, situated on the banks of the game-rich Sabie River in the southern part of the Kruger National Park, with excellent sundowner viewing.
With its large lawns and shade trees this camp is a very popular family destination.
Due to the abundant foliage and waterholes in the area, game abounds here. There are various excellent drives in this area, especially the one flanking the rivers south bank, and lions are quite common in this area, usually under trees and bushes in the heat of the day, but early morning and late afternoon drives should lead to to various sightings.
A small dam situated only about 1 km from the camp often hosts crocodile, hippo and various species of birds.
