Guests per Safari Vehicle
Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is an escape where one soul is enriched and promises life-changing moments and opportunities that will leave you with memories of unforgettable experiences. Here, hospitality is designed entirely around the guests, from customised spa therapies and private dining to safaris with surprise refreshment stops and luxury – much more than a sophisticated room in an exotic location – has substance.
Lion Sands Ivory Lodge boasts eight one-bedroom Villas, secluded at the confluence of the Sabie River, which is the ultimate bush retreat. Your private lounge, patio, deck and pool invite easy relaxation, while a dedicated team of staff are always on hand to take care of your every whim and fancy. The lodge also includes the two-bedroom Fish Eagle Villa and offers private luxury and personalised service for families or a group of friends.
The guest areas at Lion Sands Ivory Lodge include a private bar with fireplace, a library lounge, a well-stocked wine cellar, wooden viewing decks, a magnificent River Island Deck built on the river, spa, gymnasium, MORE Gallery boutique, and both an indoor dining room and open-air, traditional Boma dining area.
Adjacent to the world-renowned Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve is famed for its intimate wildlife encounters, particularly leopard viewing. Home to a host of animals, including the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino), the Sabi Sand is part of a conservation area that covers over two million hectares (almost five million acres), an area equivalent to the state of New Jersey.
With no boundary fences between the Sabi Sand and the Kruger National Park, this reserve benefits from the great diversity of animals found in one of the richest wildlife areas on the African continent, along with the additional benefits experienced on a private game reserve.
Game drives traverse an area of 10 500 hectares (26 000 acres) and strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of the game viewing experience. Sensitive off-road driving ensures that guests have the best possible view of any exceptional sighting and rangers are constantly in touch with each other to keep track of animal movements.
