Beautifully designed and romantic, Lion Sands is a collection of four distinct lodges located in an award-winning Private Game Reserve and managed with a passion instilled by a family history reaching as far back as 1933.
The philosophy of Lion Sands treats the safari experience holistically, ensuring that all spheres of the ecosystem, from the smallest insects to the mighty African elephant are viewed as a whole.
And each of the five lodges, set along the banks of the perennial Sabie River is more inspiring than the next.
Built on the banks of the Sabie River, the lodge is positioned on a site with trees dating back 800 years.
Its 20 luxury chalets are connected by raised wooden walkways and decorated in neutral tones, in a soft understated style. Each chalet comes with an en-suite bathroom, outdoor and indoor shower and wooden viewing deck. There are two swimming pools, a large viewing deck with spotting scopes and a comfortable lounge and bar area.
