Lion Sands Ivory Lodge
The Lion Sands lodges, including Ivory Lodge, are set along the banks of the perennial Sabi River, and each have breath-taking views. Every day, the appearance of animals at the water’s edge presents you with a natural theatre.
Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is backed by luxury accommodation – where comforts, service, food and wine are equally well-considered – this is a safari in style, an African original.
Ivory Lodge is a clean-lined masterpiece. Just eight low-slung Villas of glass, wood and concrete meld into the riverscape. The lodge attracts those in search of time away in their own space. From your bed, deck or private plunge pool, this is one of the best places to look in on Africa – uninterrupted. Here, hospitality is designed entirely around YOU and luxury – much more than a sophisticated room in an exotic location – has substance.
Africa has been called the greatest show on earth, and Lion Sands presents a safari that plays out like a highlights reel. The reserve conserves 5,000ha (12,500ac) of a habitat that is home to the highest and most diverse concentration of wildlife in the southern hemisphere. You will see all of Africa’s iconic species – lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, and zebra – along with a supporting cast of no less intriguing 137 mammal species and over 450 varieties of bird. Our safaris present an adventure that is wild, and then some!
Built beyond an outcrop of boulders, across a small drawbridge, The Kingston Treehouse is available to guests of Ivory Lodge and is a couple or family’s private vantage over Africa. Sheltered by its wood and glass structure, you can savour this faraway experience in comfort – complete with feather beds and a hot shower.
