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.

Rooms & Suites:

Twenty suites are available at Lion Sands River Lodge, consisting of twelve luxury suites and eight superior suites all offering amazing views out over the Sabie River and surrounding bushveld.

All luxury suites offer a private verandah, king-sized beds (draped in mosquito netting), air-conditioning and large en-suite bathrooms.

Superior suites offer more space and indoor and outdoor showers in addition to what luxury suites have on offer.

Food & Wine:

The culinary experience is unique with all meals being prepared by the lodge's celebrated chef, with all ingredients ranging from zebra to crocodile (for the less adventurous there is also a selection international dishes).

Breakfasts and lunches are usually taken on the River Island Deck overlooking the Sabie River. Dinners on the other hand are served up in a few unique locations, including the open air boma, out in the bush under the African stars or even on your our private verandah.

A fine selection of South African and international wines is also on offer.


Exceptional public areas offer guests a area in which to sit back and relax and catch up on some news, the comfortable lounge are bars areas are the envy of surrounding lodges.

Other facilities include a magnificent viewing deck with views out over the Sabie River, two heated swimming pools, a wellness centre and a small gym. Wi-Fi is available in all public areas within the lodge.


Early morning and late afternoon/ early evening game drives are on offer twice daily in open 4x4 safari vehicles. Highly recommended are the Bush Walks with highly trained guides, your chance to get up close and personal with the local wildlife whilst learning all about the surrounding bushveld and history.

Private game drive vehicles are on offer should you require a vehicle all to yourself, specialist guides can also be requested should you require a birding expert for example.
