“For additional privacy and panoramas, Villa Six is the one to go for, as it is furthest from the reception, main Lodge and boma. Alternatively, for the ultimate in adventure, opt for a night in one of the three tree houses. The nature drives here are some of the best due to the great guiding with some of the country’s top rangers and trackers.”
The family-owned Lion Sands Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands is home to five superb lodges on the banks of the Sabie River in the Greater Kruger region, South Africa. Of these, Ivory Lodge is the most luxurious and the only lodge in the Sabi Sands Reserve with access to the river where you are pretty much guaranteed spectacular game viewing.
Each of the six sleek villas has a private infinity plunge pool, indoor and outdoor showers, and air conditioning and open fireplaces to cover all extremes of daytime and evening temperature. There’s also a telescope for guests to view animals from the deck. Away from the villas, a beautiful main lodge wraps around century-old trees and overlooks the river
Fabulous food is prepared by the Ivory Lodge’s team of chefs, and there’s also a state-of-the-art spa and gym. Many activities are on offer - the ballooning safaris over the Sabie River Valley should not be missed.
