The S51, Sable Dam Loop is located 7 km from the Phalaborwa Gate. This loop runs through mopane veld, and a few kilometres from the turnoff you'll find the Sable dam. There is normally a lot of animal activity and birdlife around the dam. Elephants, buffalo, lions, crocodile and hippo are common in this area and leopard have also be spotted on several occasions. African Fish Eagle, Black-winged stilt, African Cuckoo, and Cormorant are some of the birds that can be seen from the bird hide across the dam. Sleep overs can be arranged at the birdhide.
The S51 passes the Vudogwa hill and the Masorini Ruins historical site can be viewed from the picnic spot.
The S51 is 8 kilometers (5 miles) long.
