Lion Sands Ivory Lodge
The international award winning Lion Sands Ivory Lodge, situated in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve bordering the Kruger National Park, is ultra-luxurious, yet simple and uncluttered. The lodge is dedicated to an ethos of exclusivity and complete privacy, where each suite is operated as a private villa.
Amazing views of the Sabie River, which has flowing water all year around, can be seen 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. For a family safari, or for the ultimate private retreat, Fish Eagle Villa is available. Two bedrooms are yours along with all the suite amenities, but this villa also offers its own Wellness Room with a treatment room and gym. Public lodge areas offer even more for guests to enjoy, including a health spa and gym, wine cellar and open-air dining spaces.
