Lion Sands River Lodge
We saw so much game here it was amazing. We saw the Big 5 and truly enjoyed seeing the wild dogs as an added bonus. The rooms were lovely and the view from the patio was breathtaking. The food options were delicious and they accommodated my 9 year old niece’s food needs as well.

Oh gosh, where to start. The scenery here was unbelievable (red sand and dunes) and such a dramatic difference from anywhere else we have been. The staff were truly exceptional as were the rooms. The game viewing was nice but not as good as at Lion Sand. I truly enjoyed my yoga sessions and all the extra attention we received from the whole staff. My niece loved all the activities that they provided for her and the backpack for kids upon arrival was a lovely touch. The food was delicious and the attentive extras they provide their guest was incredible. I loved the ability to plan our day as we liked and have everything catered to our needs. This was truly a 5 star lodge and I hope to return one day. P.S. The black maned lion was so amazing and large, it was my favorite animal of the whole trip.
