Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Many safari lodges in the Kruger National Park build rooms of wood and canvas for the intimate bush experience. These lodges tread a fine line between rustic charm and cheap shortcuts; not so at Lion Sands River Lodge. Built along the Sabie River, the large rooms have polished screed floors and the decor is demure shades of cream and brown with smart, modern lines, luxurious furnishings and, in a concession to the environment, deep thatched roofs.

At Lion Sands River Lodge in your luxury en suite chalet, you are by no means removed from the wonderful African bush of Kruger Park. An enormous wooden deck wraps around your large room with a view of the bush through French doors occupying an entire wall. The en suite bathroom is simply regal with marble finishes, free-standing slipper tubs, designer vanity stations and an all-glass shower cubicle.

Everything, from toiletries to linens is five-star quality. And what’s more there is a luxury suite as well: bigger, better and totally private for the ultimate in romance and comfort.

The living area is generous and well positioned with a view over the river and into Kruger Park. Delightful wooden walkways connect all the living spaces to your room.

And we’ve just finished check-in. Now it’s time for a spot of lunch and a safari: two more great features of this luxury safari lodge to write home about. The rates include all meals, drinks, teas and snacks as well as your amazing game viewing activities twice a day.

Game viewing is excellent in the Kruger Park. Taking your safari in the Lion Sands Private Game Reserve ensures you have an exclusive safari experience devoid of crowds and packed with wildlife including the big five and all of the Kruger Park’s amazing wild animals and birds.
