Lion Sands Ivory Lodge


Cosmopolitan chic meets African art and attitude on the banks of the Sabi River – this has to be the hippest lodge in the bush.

Voted one of the most luxurious safari lodges in South Africa, there are just six suites in shades of ebony & ivory, each with a huge open-plan bathroom complete with egg-shaped bath and indoor & outdoor shower. Each also has a wide viewing deck with plunge pool and a day bed from which you can watch the animals at the river or finding shade under the trees - should you not wish to stray far from base.


Our Thoughts

One of the most luxurious lodges in the Sabi Sands – a stylista’s paradise. The ebony & ivory theme runs throughout the suites, and the views from the sundecks mean guests can game-view from their comfort of their plunge pools.
