The secret to seeing great game is to leave the a Camp within 1/2 hr of the gates opening in the morning. Plan your breakfast stop at a picnic spot about 2hr later and then return to Camp for lunch and to relax. In the evening, take about a 1 1/2hr round trip to explore the area near your Camp.

Directions to Lower Sabie Camp
The beautiful Sabie River, which runs through the southern reaches of the Kruger National Park, is well-known for it's large, meandering waters and the vast and diverse range of wildlife that it attracts. Lower Sabie Rest Camp, situated on the banks of this perennial river, is one of the park's most popular and rewarding.
The views of the Sabie River are particularly enjoyable, and it is not uncommon to see wildlife venturing towards the waters from the comfort of the camp. And in the background, the impressive Lebombo mountains offer the perfect backdrop.
The camp itself is particularly serene, which is largely to do with the large number of indigenous trees and the various wildlife that they attract. Numerous bird sightings are common within the camp, and many visitors choose simply to relax on one of the many benches rather than venturing outside its fences.
