Lion Sands - May Property of the Month

Lion Sands – May Property of the Month

Lion Sands is a place that enriches one’s soul.

Our African hospitality is warm, yet unobtrusive, promising a stay that is luxurious, and carefree.

Lion Sands is the only private game reserve rooted in both the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Kruger National Park

Set along the banks of the perennial Sabie River, each Lion Sands property has breath-taking views which are all the better appreciated from the comfort of African contemporary luxury.

Exclusive accommodation, sensory comforts, intuitive service, good food and fine South African wine come together to promise a safari in style; a Lion Sands Original.

And yet, each of Lion Sands’ lodges has its own special allure. The one for you will depend entirely on who you are, and what you are looking for.

For May, we highlight our two favourite lodges the River Lodge and Ivory Lodge.

AI May Property of the Month – Lion Sands – River Lodge & Ivory Lodge

River Lodge

Here you can expect a sophisticated interpretation of the traditional safari lodge, with light and bright contemporary décor. Limited walls allows a seamless flow between inside and out.

The lodge’s eight Luxury Rooms, six Superior Luxury Rooms and four River Suites are spaced along a path to reveal splendid river views, and make for a very personal safari stay. This is where couples, families and friends come together to reconnect with one another and Mother Nature.

The River Suites, each fronted by a plunge pool and set further away from the main lodge, are the most spacious and private – and also include a Family Suite. It’s for you to choose which accommodation best suits you – but the extraordinary view comes standard. Beyond your retreat, relax at the guest pool or in the spa, get active in the gym, or browse the MORE Gallery. You can also turn your safari photos into artful souvenirs in the Creative Lab.

Ivory Lodge

The understated jewel in the Lion Sands crown. Here, hospitality is designed entirely around YOU and luxury is a feeling – much more than a sophisticated room in an exotic location.

We took our cue from Mother Nature to build a lodge ‘of the earth’, with natural materials that complement the surrounding bush environment and an open design that draws your attention outside. Décor is rich yet minimal, lighting is ambient, and African design accents subtly pick up on the safari theme.

Ivory Lodge awes with a natural and simple beauty, enhanced only by breathtaking river scenes.

The lodge’s eight one-bedroom Villas, set secluded at the confluence of the Sabie and Sand rivers, are the ultimate bush retreats. Here, only the best-of-the-best will do, somehow made all the more wonderful in the wild.

Your private lounge, patio, deck and pool invite easy relaxation, while a dedicated team of staff are always on hand to take care or your every whim and fancy. Everything is included – from your champagne of choice stocked in the maxibar, to the washing and pressing of your favourite shirt – to create a highly-personalised experience of a safari, your way.
