Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is one of the most lavish properties we know in Africa. The Lodge itself overlooks Sabi River. Both the large decking area outside the sumptuous main area and the pool look directly out over the river – the setting is superb.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is located in the private Lion Sands Game Reserve in the southern section of South Africa’s Sabi Sand.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
With only six suites, the accommodation here is nothing short of phenomenal – huge glass-fronted villas come with separate lounge areas and good-sized plunge pools. Every furnishing and fitting is of the highest quality.
Lion Sands Reserve shares its boundary with the Kruger National Park itself – this results in consistently good game viewing throughout the year. It is an area very well known for its Big Five, especially for leopard.
If we were to try to pick holes in this property, the only negative we can find is the actual Lion Sands Reserve. With one of the smallest game-driving areas in all of Sabi Sand, and three properties in the reserve, vehicle traffic here is some of the heaviest.
