In this rest camp, the bounty and plenitude of nature are very evident, eloquently symbolised by the most conspicuous of its numerous trees, the mighty sycamore fig, which provides generously for the livelihood of many birds and insects. Not only do these giants produce fruit at least twice a year, but different trees produce fruit at different times, extending the gifts of life over many months Watching the endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River establishes a sense of ones own place in the eternal cycle

COMMON SIGHTINGS

- White Rhino
- Hippopotamus
- Lion
- Goliath Heron
- Giant Kingfisher

Large numbers of game are attracted to the abundance of water, sweet grass and foliage in the vicinity of Lower Sabie Restcamp, giving rise to a diversity of game, almost unequalled anywhere else in the Park. The area is also rich in Cheetah, Elephant, herds of Buffalo up to 800 strong, and is known for its high density of Warthog.

The recent addition of a swimming pool has proved to be a popular enjoyment of guests, especially the younger ones. Film shows on conservation and wildlife are shown on certain evenings at Lower Sabie Restcamp.
