Lion Sands Ivory Lodge
Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa
Drawing from a rich family heritage located in the bush, Lion Sands Game Reserve is an exclusive yet deeply personal resort. The sophisticated interiors, flawless service and unique personalized experiences make for a truly unforgettable safari.
WHY WE LOVE IT
Sample the best of South Africa with local recipes styled into contemporary dishes, and wine tastings of native grapes (think Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon). And best of all, they’ll lay you a table wherever you choose
Unforgettable treehouse experience: sleep high above the bush floor, enjoy a glass of South African wine under stars and fall asleep to the vibrant sounds of the native birds
Driving down sandy roads and the grassy landscapes, arriving at Lion Sands Ivory Lodge feels like the ultimate location for your safari adventure. Choose one of six stunning venues: from the family-feeling of the River Lodge, the secluded Hinkwenu Residence, or the more exclusive Fish Eagle view with a personal chef.
The lodge is nestled among over 30,000 acres of land, between the private Sabi Sands Game Reserve and the globally esteemed Kruger National Park. Taking their cue from Mother Nature, the rooms feel bright and airy with natural materials and an earthy color palette. The decor is minimal but charming, with ambient lighting and African design accents complimenting the locale. But everything is done to ensure you won’t be distracted by the lodge’s biggest draw: the views.
WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
One word: treehouses. Choose from one of four incredible boutique constructions, elevated high about the bush floor. Experience the wonders of a South African safari in the comfort of your own home: Sit down to an alfresco dinner with Champagne and gaze at the African sun setting over the horizon. Lounge on the wooden decking with a glass of ice-cold lemonade, watch the exotic birds quench their thirst from the river at this exclusive lookout. Sink into a deep egg-bath, looking across the riverbed and immerse yourself in luxury comfort in the wilderness.
Reconnect with the natural world as you share an unforgettable safari experience with your loved ones. Tick off the Big Five in their natural habitats, and treasure seeing the endangered pangolin and African-painted wolf. See how many you can spot of the 450 varieties of bird which call the private reserve their home. Morning, noon or night, Lion Sands’ jeep is at your service to take you on the drive of a lifetime. If you’ve got a keen interest in a particular exotic bird or soft spot for a wild cat, the private guide will be more than happy to show you their secret stomping ground.
Strong focus on conservation, and the lodge also fosters development projects to empower local people (improving education; life skills; supporting local business enterprise development; improving access to clean running water)
They cater to all interests, from safari tours catered to children with family-friendly rides to voluntary activities where you’ll create unique memories with the locals
