River Lodge is the very heart and soul of the Lions Sands concession area in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. You will immediately feel at home upon arrival in the lodge: its incredible warm staff will make sure nothing lacks during your stay. The setup of Lion Sands River Lodge is very spacious, and each communal area is a welcoming invitation to wind down in one of Africa’s prime game areas. Sit back and relax in the comfortable lounge and soak up the sounds of the bush. On chilly winter nights a large fireplace provides comfortable warmth. You may also prefer to take a refreshing dip in one of two heated swimming pools.
Lion Sands River Lodge consists of twenty rooms in total: twelve luxury suites and eight superior luxury suites, all with their own private wooden viewing deck looking out over the Sabi River. You may not need to leave the privacy of your room to see wildlife roaming around River Lodge. The Sabi Sands, and especially the surroundings of the Sabi River, is famous for its record number of leopard sightings. Your luxury suite features a king-sized bed and large en suite bathroom (with both indoor and outdoor showers). Of course all suites are air-conditioned. The suite will serve as your tranquil haven during your stay at Lion Sands River Lodge. The communal areas and rooms are connected by raised wooden boardwalks.
