Trip of a lifetime
This was beyond anything imagined. Theses guys are excellent! From the food to the facilities to the safaris this was a trip of a lifetime. My family and I could not have been more satisfied, happy to recommend Lions Sands to all our friends and family.
AMAZING TO SAY THE LEAST
This was hands down the best 4 days I have experienced while traveling. My guide, Anthony made our trip so special alongside tracker, Amu. We saw all big 5 and the magnificent 7. Form the moment we arrives Nadia made us feel right at home alongside the wonderful chef, Connie and Billy. The lodge is absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to come and visit with my family (hopefully next year). Anthony was the highlight of the trip and was so incredibly informative and you can tell he absolutely loves what he does. He was so personable and patient, answered all our questions and we learned so much from him. The food options from breakfast, lunch and dinner were delicious and changed daily. I used the spa services daily and was the best massage I have ever received. One of the days, I used spa services at their sister lodge, Ivory Lodge which looks just as beautiful just a little more private the River Lodge. I cannot wait to come back again! The trip was 10/10. I am missing River Lodge!
Superb safari experience
We stayed for four days and had a delightful time. The locations and accommodations were splendid, the staff was attentive and friendly, and the food was delicious. The game drives were wonderful. Our guide was Mitch and our tracker was Abraham. Both were expert and friendly. They placed us within close proximity of lions, leopards, elephants, hippos, rhinos (both black and white), zebras, giraffes, hyenas, wild dogs, antelopes, etc. Monkeys played near the dining area. Some of us spent a night in the treehouse and had a memorable time - serenaded by lions. The bush walk was a treat, and we took part in the antelope dung spitting contest. Our expectations for the stay were high, and Lion Sands exceeded them.
Amazing safari experience!
Absolutely beautiful! The staff was so friendly and food so delicious! The rangers were so great in pointing out everything, thank you Raymond and Joe! We felt safe, yet was given the opportunity to bush walk and learn so much! We even had a dung spitting competition!!! Lol, who would have thought that was a thing. Only here can you experience something of a lifetime! We saw everything, lions, zebras, elephants, rinos, hippos, etc. very educational and so much fun! If you want a first class experience then you need to stay here. Thanks, Cindy and Kobin
Lion Sands offers everything - a stunning setting on the Sand River, modern architecture that lets the outside in through glass and water features, spacious and comfortable accommodation and wonderful staff prepared to go that extra mile. The three nights we spent there will be remembered always and a return visit is on our wish list.
