Lion Sands Game Reserve
Lion Sands Game Reserve is situated in the Southern portion of the 65,000-ha Sabi Sand Game Reserve, an area well known for its spectacular game viewing.

It has exclusive access to the Sabie River. The source of the River includes the famous Mac Mac falls flowing from its source high up in the Drakensburg mountain range. This River is central to why Lion Sands delivers an incomparable safari experience in Africa.

Where there is water there is life, coolness, sanctuary from the heat of the African sun, a place where the wildlife travel great distances to quench their thirsts, rejuvenation and so much more. This is the natural wonder which can be experienced at Lion Sands.

Another key aspect to the Lion Sands experience lies within its Safari. The philosophy of the safari experience at Lion Sands is to deliver a consistently professional, informative & holistic safari experience, ensuring that all spheres of the eco-system, from the small insects to the mighty African elephant, are covered in as much detail as the Guest may require.

Characteristic Species in Lion Sands include lion, elephant, white rhino, leopard, cheetah, buffalo, Wild Dog giraffe, zebra, hyena, waterbuck, hippopotamus, crocodile, wildebeest, kudu and many other mammal & bird species.

South African Honeymoon Safari:
The business of romance is something we take seriously. We understand that the key elements when on honeymoon include privacy & exclusivity, luxurious comfort, relaxation, good food, incredible photographic opportunities, and being utterly pampered.

We check all of these boxes, and then some.

The choice of Lodge at Lion Sands is dependent on your personal taste. If you prefer the company of others in a larger environment, then River Lodge is for you.

If you enjoy utter exclusivity with the privacy of your own Villa with deck, lounge and pool, then we recommend Ivory Lodge.

Both Tinga Lodge and Narina Lodge afford exclusive accommodations, with private plunge pools and decks overlooking the Sabie River in the Kruger National Park. The styles of the lodges differ. Narina’s signature feature is it’s positioning within the trees, while Tinga is bolder in tone and décor.

Our special treat to honeymooners
- A romantic ‘turn down’
- A surprise gift
- A bottle of sparkling wine

You would be challenged to find a more romantic experience than one of our luxury Treehouses.

Spend the night under the stars, on your own in the middle of the bush. Enjoy a delicious picnic basket of Tapas-style cuisine, and sip on a glass of good South African wine as you recline together under a blanket beneath the Milky Way. You will run out of wishes before you run out of Shooting Stars.

Each of the Treehouses is unique. Chalkley Treehouse and Kingston Treehouse are in the Lion Sands, Sabi Sand Reserve. The Tinyeleti Treehouse is in the Lion Sands, Kruger National Park.

Lion Sands Game Reserve Activities:

Rise at sunrise to head into the wild on your private african safari with your Field Guide and Tracker and discover a world usually only reserved for your screen during ‘Animal Planet’. You’ll find yourself in an environment that is as old as time, where the rhythm of nature is the only Governor.

2 safaris take place each day – in the morning and late afternoon (moving into the early evening). This is when the wildlife is most active, and the temperature more moderate.

The bush takes on a completely different perspective when you are on foot. Each of your senses will be on full alert as you feel the grass and stones beneath your feet; touch the leathery leaves of trees you walk beneath; smell the musky scent of wild animals in the vicinity; taste the sweet grass of the veld; and hear the crack of a branch indicating you are not alone.

Walks generally take place after breakfast and last approximately 1½ to 2 hours, depending on the fitness level of guests. In summer, due to the heat, walks may be incorporated into the morning game drive before heading back to the lodge for breakfast.

Lion Sands Game Reserve, within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Kruger National Park, is part of an ecosystem which is home to the largest concentration of wild animal species in the Southern Hemisphere

The preserved plains of the Sabi Sands and the Kruger National Park hold one of highest concentrations of game per hectare on the planet. This, coupled with ethical and responsible conservation management, have resulted in animals which are highly habituated to human presence. Our landrovers pose no threat, and we able to get really close to countless animal species (including predators, general game, reptiles, insects, and birds-a-plenty).
