About Lion Sands Private Game Reserve

This International Award Winning private game reserve is located in the finest territory of the world famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve. It stretches for km along the perennial Sabie River which forms its natural boundary with the Kruger National Park. The land, which has been owned and managed by the More Family for four generations, is a place of rarity and carries with it a passion which can only be instilled by a great family history. Nicholas and Robert More, brothers and fourth generation owners of the land, opened Lion Sands Private Game Reserve to guests in April 2001 with Lion Sands River Lodge and Lion Sands Ivory Lodge. Their passion to deliver a world class luxury safari experience is equalled by their complete commitment in ensuring a pure balance between the preservation of this pristine “bushveld” wilderness area, allowing access for guests to observe some of Africa’s greatest mammals in their natural habitat and ensuring the benefits are shared with local communities.

Lion Sands Ivory Lodge, awarded Tatler Magazine Best Hotel in World 2006, is ultra luxurious yet simple and uncluttered, the interiors achieving a contemporary, Afro-European elegance. The Lodge is about overriding exclusivity with complete privacy where each suite is operated as a private villa. Private dining, in-suite spa treatments and complete relaxation is the norm. Neither word nor photograph can capture the sense of the pure beauty which is breathed in when opening the carved wooden doors leading into this private recluse, arguably the world’s finest suite.

Lion Sands River Lodge, which is downstream of Ivory Lodge, is nestled under a canopy of ancient trees dating back almost 800 years. The Lodge is about spirit, warmth, nature, relaxation and is hosted by a family of staff that will make it feel like home from home. Relax, enjoy and get to experience genuine African hospitality at its best. The Lion Sands Game Reserve is private and exclusive to Lion Sands guests only, which ensures the safari experience is highly personalised, allowing guests the time and flexibility to savour the natural beauty which abounds. Come to Lion Sands, spend a little time with us, man and animal, and you will experience a feeling of belonging and at the same time a sense of freedom that comes from those who believe in sharing instead of possessing.

My boss, his wife and sister-in-law visit the game reserve and were very impressed. He said it was a relaxing time and very enjoyable.
