When guests stay at an established family run game reserve and safari lodge, they feel part of the bigger picture, warmly embraced by history and knowledge and a huge dedication to conservation of the South African bushveld. Our clients rave in this way about Lion Sands Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve near Kruger National Park.

There are four gorgeous luxury lodges from which to choose your once in a lifetime bush holiday, packed with safaris and comfort and adventure.Lion Sands Game Reserve places a huge emphasis on their experienced trackers and guides, without whom the game drives would simply not be successful.

These talented people are tuned into the wilderness around them, at one with every leaf movement, every animal spoor, every lion breath and kudu heartbeat. They know the interdependence of every creature on the planet and they will teach you something of what they know in their hearts. Trackers and field guides work as a team to bring to the client the best of game viewing in this renowned conservation area.

Guests mix the wildness of the bush with the luxury elegant lodges fitted with every mod con and comfort for guests of all ages. Ivory Lodge is probably the most private safari lodge in the collection with its remarkable splendour and its deluxe decadence where clients become part of the finer bush experience. Your game drives and meals are tailor made to your requirements, fitting into your day as you pamper mind, body and soul.

For a lodge that is energising and intimate, stay at the magical Tinga right in the Sabie River with its complete immersion in the habitat of rare wild animals. You will forget your real life while you are here and will become a talented animal watcher and dreamer!

Also overlooking the Sabie River lies Narina Lodge with its nine private luxury suites reminiscent of tree houses suspended in the canopy of a lush forest. You reach the main areas along a wooden boardwalk, through the thick vegetation, almost as if you are part of the wilderness. Here, you find peace, at last.

River Lodge is so named thanks to its position on the Sabie River as well, a charismatic lodge with fantastic views and the feeling that you have finally come home to a huge farmhouse in the bush. You will make everlasting friends from the staff and fellow guests when you stay here. You can also stay the night in one of the Lion Sands Treehouses, where you learn about the stars above you and sleep with the animals, silently.

In other words, not matter where you stay in the Lion Sands Game Reserve, you are in fact part of the family for a while, warmly received and looked after, getting the best of wildlife viewing and luxury accommodation to make your safari in South Africa one perfect memory. See the Big Five in their untouched habitats and take a walk with your tracker and guide deep into nature to feel her nuances with all your senses.

While you are there, visit the Hippo Pools, drink a glass of champagne on an evening game drive and make a wish as you enjoy the warm boma fire every evening. Lion Sands Game Reserve offers clients something unique, something warm and something unforgettable. Make your enquiries here for additional information.
