River Lodge is an undeniably top-class property, but one that also offers good value for money. Substantially less expensive than its neighbour Ivory Lodge, River Lodge is a larger and more commercial lodge that offers luxury accommodation at a fair price.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
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.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The lodge itself has just over twenty rooms, making it one of the largest properties in all of Sabi Sand. However, due to great communal areas in retains the feel of a smaller lodge. There are three categories of rooms, all with different prices – the best suites are stunning, while the standard suites provide ample comfort at great value.
The reserve shares traversing with a neighbouring reserve, which gives you access to both the Sabie and Sand Rivers that give the reserve its name. These are some of the richest habitats in the whole of Africa and this results in one of the best game viewing areas in the region.
