Lion Sands Ivory Lodge
Ivory Lodge is an utterly exclusive luxury lodge, set within the Lion Sands Sabi Sand Reserve. Family owned and managed since 1933, this award-winning private reserve forms part of the Sabi Sands, an iconic safari destination that is one of the best places in Africa to see the Big Five.
Lion Sands Ivory Lodge has 8 incredibly spacious and exquisitely decorated private villas, each overlooking the Sabie River. The bedroom has glass sliding doors to make the most of the sweeping river views, there’s a private lounge with a fireplace, an open-plan bathroom and outdoor shower, and a rim-flow swimming pool where you can cool off while watching for wildlife at the water’s edge. There’s also a beautiful family suite available.
Accommodation at Ivory Lodge is so beautiful that we wouldn’t blame you for skipping a dawn game drive just to enjoy your luxurious surroundings. Indeed, chances are you’ll be rewarded with sightings of herds of elephant or buffalo, which often gather at the river to drink.
Game drives are led by a highly experienced guide-and-tracker team, who do everything possible to get you up close to big cats, elephant, rhino and more. In the evening, toast the African sunset with delicious snacks and drinks, before sitting down to dinner under a sky filled with stars. Excellent food and impeccable service all add to the five-star experience.
