Lion Sands Game Reserve is the only private reserve to have a foot in both the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Kruger National Park. This is a family owned reserve dedicated to the conservation of the wildlife in Sabi Wildtuin.

The accommodation at Lion Sands River Lodge boasts 20 stylish bedrooms, each decorated in tranquil cream and beige hues. The luxurious en-suite rooms have indoor and outdoor showers and private wooden decks. Each room is air-conditioned with an overhead fan. A raised wooden walkway links the rooms to all the other areas.

A night spent at the Chalky Treehouse is a unique experience.  It is a romantic interlude where you can enjoy tapas with red wine and a sleepover in the wild underneath a star studded sky.
