Lion Sands River Lodge in the Lion Sands Reserve is situated in one of the finest wilderness areas (the World famous Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve) in the Southern Kruger National Park region.
River Lodge is the soul of the Lion Sands Game Reserve; the lodge is positioned on a site overlooking the Sabie River and Kruger National Park under 800-year-old trees.
The experience of the lodge is all about spirit, warmth, nature & relaxation.
Situated within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Lions Sands Game Reserve borders the Kruger National Park and offers travellers some of the best wildlife and birdlife found anywhere on the African continent.
The southern area of the Sabi Sand is home to the largest concentration of wild animal species in the Southern Hemisphere.
There is simply no words to explain the wildlife that can be seen in this region - to say amazing would be an understatement.
