Lower Sabie’s in a wildlife-rich area of Kruger National Park and has a number of different self-drive game routes where you can stop off at many of the surrounding camps for lunch, snacks and a toilet stop.

If you’re staying at Lower Sabie and want someone else to lead the way, you could consider going on a ranger-led:

The lovely Sunset Dam is on the doorstep of Lower Sabie Rest Camp. Park your car at the dam. Watch the wildlife come and go for a drink and see the most enormous crocodiles on the banks. Sunset Dam is also home to a number of hippos and water birds, such as the black-winged stilt (pictured below).

Lower Sabie Rest Camp is in southern Kruger National Park. It’s a convenient day’s drive from these surrounding rest camps:
