Flora and Fauna

Mammals

At night the diversity of game seen in the Lower Sabie area is hard to equal anywhere in the Kruger National Park. The area is rich in lion, cheetah, elephant, hippo, rhino, herds of buffalo up to 800 strong and a very high density of warthog.

Vegetation

Lower Sabie has many large riverine trees in camp and the sycamore fig tree is very prominent. The camp is situated in knob thorn/marula savannah on basalt soils. Other prominent trees include the leadwood and sausage trees. The grass is sweet thus attracting many grazing species. Immediately west is a zone of delagoa thorn thicket on ecca shale soil. Here prevalent trees include the delagoa thorn and the magic guarri. The grass is still sweet, but shorter.
