Located in the Southern Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Lion Sands is the only Reserve in South Africa to offer a safari in both the Sabie and Sand River ecosystems. The Reserve is family owned and managed by the 4th generation More Family. Their grandfather was one of the founding members of the Sabi Sand Wildtuin in 1948 instilling a long history of community and conservation. Due to the ideal dynamic location, the River Lodge boasts a view of the Sabie River, which cannot be wasted, and is evident through the luxuriously thatched bedrooms featuring private wooden viewing deck. With the quietly rambling river outside your room, you won't have to go far to see wildlife or to drink in the surrounding Sabi Sand Reserve whilst overlooking the world- famous Kruger National Park, all in one glance.
Each of the Luxury Suites at the Lion Sands River Lodge feature spaciously designed layouts and top quality in-room amenities. Guests can enjoy the view of the wildlife-enriched habitat that is the Sabie River from the wooden viewing deck. The large and spectacularly designed bedrooms feature double bedding, a wardrobe, dressing table and a dedicated reading area. The large bathing facilities feature double vanities, a large bath and an indoor shower.
The spacious Superior Luxury Suites are elegantly designed using earth tones and creamy-beiges. The Bedroom features large open spaces, a dedicating reading area, additional seating with a view, and access to the outdoor wooden deck boasting uncanny views of the Sabie River and the many species of wildlife that inhabit it. The Bathroom is also very spacious and features a double vanity, large bathtub, and an indoor and outdoor shower. A wardrobe, dressing table and mini-bar add to the already phenomenal in room amenities.
