The international award winning Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is ultra-luxurious, yet simple and chic. This exclusive lodge prizes privacy, and each suite is operated as a private villa. Long regarded as one of the premier lodges in the world, the public areas at Ivory Lodge include a bar with fireplace, library lounge, well-stocked wine cellar, wooden viewing decks, a magnificent River Island deck, the Lalamuka Health Spa & Gymnasium, curio shop, and both an indoor and open-air dining area (or boma). Neither word nor photograph can capture the utter beauty that welcomes guests as they walk through the carved wooden doors leading into this private escape.
The Lodge is comprised of generously sized and privately situated villas, each with a separate living room, heated swimming pool and an open plan en-suite bathroom with an enclosure for the outdoor shower – incredible luxury in the middle of the bush. The color scheme of ebony and ivory is interpreted in a modern style, while selected African accessories blend the old world with the new to create Afro-Euro chic. Breathtaking views of the Sabie River, which has flowing water all year around, can be viewed through the oversized windows of your villa or from your private viewing terrace. Baby elephants bathing in the river, zebra, gnu and the large Nile crocodile are the only neighbors you shall see.
Gourmet meals are served in a variety of locations throughout the property.
Activities include morning and afternoon game drives and guided bush walks. Local village visits, Spa treatments and the ultimate Chalkley Treehouse experience, are additional charges.
