Under the impressive silhouette of the Lebombo Mountains, flanked by the Sabie river, guests to the Lower Sabie rest camp enjoy rustic, back-to-basics bungalow accommodation, as well as a wide variety of game and bird populations.
The camp, hugging the banks of the Sabie, accommodates guests in a range of units, including camp grounds, one-to-five bed huts, stilted, furnished tents, three or five-bed bungalows, and a luxury guest house with limited channel-access DSTV and a serene river view. En-suite bathrooms, fully stocked kitchenettes , and air conditioning make accommodation at Lower Sabie a breeze of comfort and accessibility.
The scenic grounds exhibit the area’s striking natural beauty ? symbolised by the definitive indigenous sycamore fig tree. Guests can take guided bush walks and game drives around the area, all supervised by informed and keen professionals - however children younger than six will not be permitted on game drives, while children younger than twelve are restricted from game walks.
Satelite activities to the Lower Sabie camp include outings to Sunset Dam, or birding excursions to the Nthandanyati Bird Hide, while the area itself is particularly good for spotting lion, elephant, cheetah, rhino, hippo, rhino, buffalo, warthog. Birding at Sunset Dam or from the Nthandanyati birdhide, makes for a vibrant and exclusive experience, with a huge variety of birds for the avid watcher.
Netled into knob thorn and marula savannah, this area boasts succulent, leafy trees and prevalent delagoa thorn and magic guarri, making it a well shaded, attractive setting in which to track animals, explore the African bush and enjoy a sundowner in the reddened twilight of the African dusk.
