Lion Sands River Lodge
is located in the Sabi Sand Reserve
in the Kruger
area to the Northeast
of South Africa
Situated on the banks of the Sand River in the far south, this is the largest of three related lodges. Chic public areas include a spa, conference facility and gift shop. Guest accommodation is in eighteen extremely well appointed chalets. Service levels are generally high.
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, its relatively large size 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
