Out of this world! It was simply magical, surreal! The facilities were beautiful, the attention to detail absolutely amazing, the staff so attentive, we felt very spoilt. The game drives were the most amazing thing we'd ever done and experienced. The food was really fabulous.

AMAZING!!!!! The lodge was so luxurious and the staff were beyond incredible. Everything was perfect - the hotel decor, the room, the food, pool, safari guides. The food was out of this world and we had the time of our lives on the safari. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to South Africa.

Luxurious lodge on a picturesque setting. Guest rooms are gorgeous with sumptuous bedroom and bathroom. Staff is friendly and they are there to please you in any way possible. Each game drives were exciting and the ranger and trackers knowledge about the area and animals were impressive. Food is delicious and it is a top restaurant quality and service.

The lodge is in a beautiful location and the rooms are lovely. The quality of the game drives was much lower here than at Dulini. This is probably a good recommendation for those new to safaris but I would not recommend the lodge to more experienced safari goers because of the quality of the drives compared to the northern sabi lodges.

This place was AMAZING. I would go back in a heartbeat. You definitely feel like you're on an exotic and luxurious get away while staying here. The grounds are beautiful, the staff was incredibly gracious, friendly and warm, the room was spectacular and the food was by far the best I've ever tasted. There wasn't a single detail that was missed in their service and accommodations. On our first night there we were also greeted with a candlelit room, drawn bubble bath with rose pedals and a complimentary bottle of champagne which really made it a little more special considering we were there on our honeymoon. We also stayed in the Chalkey Treehouse one night which I believe is exclusive to the lion sands. It was a once in a lifetime experience that I would encourage anyone to do who stays here. Lastly, the guides and trackers were fantastic. They were so incredibly knowledgeable and up beat considering we were up and out at 5:00!! I would recommend the lion sands to anyone going to Kruger, if we go back, we might want to try out the ivory lodge next time around :)
