Lion Sands River Lodge
Lion Sands River Lodge is a beautiful and luxurious lodge, part of a portfolio of properties in the area owned and managed by the same family.
These are some of our go-to camps and lodges in this beautiful part of the Sabi Sands, for their family accommodation options, flexible approach to the day to day activities, and overall service. Wildlife viewing is some of the best in the world, and you’ll be treated to regular sightings of leopard, along with the rest of the Big Five.
This is a sophisticated camp on the banks of a river, as the name might suggest, so is best suited to families with slightly older children. Those over 10 are welcome on shared game drives, however children of any ages can join private game drives.
Along with game drives, walking safaris here are some of the best in the area, and when it’s time to relax, the beautiful pool is very welcoming. Many of the rooms also have private plunge pools.
Wildlife lectures are on offer, as well as community visits, star gazing, and special children’s activities for those aged 5-11.
We recommend the River Suites, as they are the most spacious, and private. Perfect to connect as a family and soak in the natural world around you.
