Lion Sands Private Game Reserve is situated in the southern portion of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve with 10 kilometres of Sabie River frontage, where perennial water ensures a high concentration of game. Forming part of the greater Kruger National Park, the reserve has no fences and the wildlife is able to traverse freely between Lion Sands and the Kruger National Park. With 5,000 hectares of wild bush in this private concession within the world-renowned Kruger National Park, you can go exploring off-road and follow the footsteps of the leopard, track down a herd of elephants or simply wait for them to come to you. Lion Sands is family owned & managed by the 4th generation More Family.
Lion Sands Narina Lodge is perched amongst a canopy of 100-year-old trees overlooking the Sabie River. The style of the lodge is that of a luxurious treehouse where the main areas link via raised wooden walkways to the nine private suites. If you are looking for a Lodge which has a closer connection to its landscape yet offers private luxury, then Narina is the lodge for you. Narina has nine private suites, making it a very personal experience. Each suite has floor-to-ceiling glass doors which open right back, bringing the bush right inside. Each suite also has a private deck and plunge pool. Dinners are served under the African stars.
Game drives take place in the morning or late afternoon, moving into the early evening, as this is when wildlife is most active due to the temperatures being the most moderate. The Reserve is completely untouched and home to such a variety of wildlife that every day presents new and exciting interactions in an environment where all levels of the ecosystem fight for their survival in an environment where generally the rule is eat or be eaten. The guides are expertly trained to not only provide you with an encyclopedia of information on all aspects of the ecology but are also well-versed in being incredible hosts, passionate about making sure your highest expectations are met.
