The best place in the world!
My husband and I stayed at The Lion Sands River Lodge for part of our honeymoon, and it was truly the BESt part of our honeymoon. The entire staff at the lodge is like a family, and we felt lucky enough to be part of it for the few days we were there. We were lucky enough to have Lucia as our guide and Juice as our tracker, and they both made the entire trip amazing. They are SO talented, passionate, and knowledgeable about the bush and the animals and we learned so, so much. The safari rides far exceeded our expectations. James was our butler, and he was so pleasant and thoughtful, and on the last day of our stay, he arranged a private, candle lit, romantic dinner for us. It was so sweet, I wanted to cry happy tears! We also treated ourselves to a spa day, and it was so relaxing! We can't stop talking about how amazing our stay was. From the people, to the FOOD which was DELICIOUS! to the staff, and even the other guests in our jeep - we made friends for life and feel incredibly lucky.
The best place I have ever stayed
I cannot express how special and beautiful this place was. The staff are amazing, the food is delicious and the rooms are just so stunning. We had Syd and Abraham as our guide and tracker and they made the whole trip for us. They were so knowledgable and we had such great conversations with them on our trip. We say so many incredible things - painted wolves hunting in a pack of 30, 14 lions with cubs altgoether, a leopard with its pray up a tree, elephants , had a coffee with giraffes and zebras to name but a few. I cannot believe the knowledge these guides and trackers have - we managed to find the wild dogs and the leopards from only one paw print on the ground and the way they tracked them down for us to see was just amazing. The food was delicious and we were treated to a special Braii with local singers which was once in a lifetime. The sustainability and community input this lodge has is also heartwarming and makes me love this place even more. Honestly a trip of a lifetime and I cannot recommend this enough !!

Amazing and life changing experience
We were privileged to have the opportunity to stay at Lion Sands and it really lives up to what you expect. The experience was absolutely amazing, the rooms felt luxurious, the food was delicious, and I cannot speak more highly of each and every member of the staff. Our guide Mendrew and tracker Andries were extremely passionate about the wildlife and nature, and did a wonderful job sharing their knowledge. We saw each of the Big 5 and more, some multiple times! I could not recommend Lion Sands more, and look forward to returning one day!
