Safe. Ready. Open.

Reconnect with life & one onother

We look forward to welcoming you through our doors for a long-awaited getaway… With our COVID-19 Protocols in place, your well-being is our top priority – along with creating the holiday you’ve been dreaming about…

Our family is one of the most fortunate in the world to be the custodians of one of Africa’s last truly unspoiled wilderness areas. In the heart of the bush, where the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve meets the world-renowned Kruger National Park, you’ll find the origin of the MORE safari – and our roots.

Every day, the congregation of wild animals at the water’s edge presents you with a natural theatre.

Our lodges, set along the banks of the perennial Sabie River, each have breath-taking views which are all the better appreciated from the comfort of African contemporary luxury.

Exclusive accommodation, sensory comforts, intuitive service, good food and fine South African wine come together to promise a safari in style; a Lion Sands Original.

And yet, each of Lion Sands’ lodges has its own special allure. The one for you will depend entirely on who you are, and what you are looking for.

THE ORIGINAL

River Lodge

River Lodge is the Eden of the More children’s youth and first Lion Sands lodge to welcome guests, who between visits have married, become parents, and returned with their children. She has a special magic, that could well come from the gigantic trees that protect her.
