Lower Sabie Review

This is one of the most popular camps in Kruger for good reason: it has tremendous views over a broad sweep of the Sabie River and sits in one of the best game-viewing areas of the park (along with Skukuza and Satara). White rhinos, lions, cheetahs, elephants, and buffalo frequently come down to the river to drink, especially in the dry winter months when there is little surface water elsewhere. Long wooden walkways that curve around the restaurant and shop are particularly attractive; you can sit here and look out over the river. Half the safari tents have river views. The vegetation around the camp is mainly grassland savanna interspersed with marula and knobthorn trees. There are lots of animal drinking holes within a few minutes' drive. Don't miss the H10 road from Lower Sabie to Tshokwane, where you'll almost certainly see elephants.
