Lion Sands River Lodge
Lion Sands is a place that enriches one’s soul and promises life-changing moments and opportunities that will leave you with memories of unforgettable experiences. It is an extraordinary gift passed down over generations and even for those of us who have known its sweeping landscapes since birth, it remains a place of overwhelming beauty and discovery.
Our family is one of the most fortunate in the world to have the privilege of being the custodians of one of Africa’s truly unspoiled wilderness areas. In the heart of the game-rich Sabi Sand Reserve, adjacent to the world-renowned Kruger National Park, we have created an iconic destination, which is as close to perfection as any place in Africa can take you. At Lion Sands you have the opportunity to view spectacular wildlife whilst preserving the balance of our “bushveld”, and the privilege of being in the company of people with an insatiable enthusiasm both for the bush and for the people who come out to visit us.
Here in the untamed African landscape, excitement rides high in discovering an intensely wild yet awe-inspiring adventure every day. The anticipation of rising before dawn to set off through the early morning mists in search of the day’s game is unforgettable and humbling at the same time.
At Lion Sands all three of our world-class luxury lodges – River Lodge, Ivory Lodge and 1933 - are situated on the perennial Sabie River and offer our guests the pinnacle of African contemporary luxury. Whether you are travelling alone, as a couple or as a family, we offer you an experience that will stretch your imagination, celebrate the vibrancy of the wilderness and create lifelong memories of a place that we call home.
