Lion Sands Ivory Lodge
is located in Sabi Sand South
in the Kruger Private Reserves
area in the Northeast
of South Africa
Situated on the banks of the Sand River in the far south, this is the mid-sized of three related lodges. Chic urban-style public areas lead out onto decks containing a small swimming pool. Facilities such as spa, conference and gift-shop are a short walk away at the much larger River Lodge
. Guest accommodation is six large and beautifully appointed suites, each with a heated swimming pool.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari, with wildlife in this Sabi Sand South area being very reliable year round. The lodge has traversing rights over around 70 square kilometres, including good access to both the Sabi and Sand rivers.
The main potential downsides are the very high prices, the rather urban styling of the lodge and the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.
In Sabi Sand South the presence of overhead telephone cables and road signs, as well as the huge Skukuza Restcamp just to the southeast, does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, but that is true of almost all of Kruger.SeasonsPrices
