Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is an ultra-luxurious award winning safari lodge located on the exclusive Lion Sands Private Game Reserve. Voted by Tatler Magazine as one of the top three hotels in the world, Ivory Lodge offers six-star luxury in the middle of the bush. The public areas include a private lounge with fireplace, a library, a well-stocked wine cellar, wooden viewing decks over the river, Lalamuka Health Spa and gym, curio shop, indoor dining room and open-air boma.
The suites are some of the most exclusive in all of southern Africa. The free-standing air conditioned villas include a separate bedroom and living room, heated swimming pool, an en suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers. The location of each villa ensures privacy and the Sabie River can be viewed from each room and the private deck. Activities offered are morning and night game drives, bush breakfast and dinners, guided bush walks, hippo drives and wildlife lectures.
You should not miss the opportunity to stay overnight in one of the two “Tree Houses” (additional fee of R985 pp). Offering a unique experience, each Tree House exudes bush comfort with a comfortable canopy bed, toilet, and vanity table. You are driven out at sunset with a picnic dinner (or after dinner at the lodge) for a night under the stars and will be collected at dawn to return to the lodge. (This needs to be pre-requested prior to arrival and paid for at the lodge). An optional golfing excursion, balloon safari or helicopter ride through the Blyde River Canyon are also available for an additional fee.
