With its vast and diverse landscape, South Africa is probably one of the most beautiful and exciting tourist destinations in the world. The country’s famous Kruger National Park is also one of the premium locations for safaris and home to a stunning family-run resort called Lion Sands. Run by brothers Nick and Rob More, Lion Sands Game Reserve is all about unique service and one-of-a-kind experience. Here, you will get closer to raw, untamed and untainted wildlife as never before.
The resort, resting on the banks of the Sabie River, offers five different lodges for accommodation – the River Lodge, Tinga Lodge, Narina Lodge, Ivory Lodge and 1933 Lodge. The bedrooms at each of the lodges are classy and luxurious, with staff at your back and call. You will hear a quiet murmur of the river nearby, and you won’t have to go far to see a wonderful wildlife. The size of the suites ranges from 66 to 98 square metres, and they are equipped with all the amenities you need – air conditioning, room fans, mosquito nets, outdoor and indoor showers, complimentary WiFi, satellite television and personal bars. Each of the lodges has a private swimming pool with telescopes for viewing the wildlife from the deck.
The outdoor activities at Lion Sands are thrilling to say the least. The four generations of the More family have grown up in this area, and know it as their back pockets. The organize safari tours in open top Land Rovers, and regardless of how many National Geographic or Animal Planet programmes about wildlife you have seen so far, you will be amazed by what you see here – from elephants and rhinoceros, buffalos, bushbucks, bushpigs, and giraffes to cheetahs, hyenas, lions, and African wild dogs.
The resort’s spa is another aspect of Lion Sands that should be thoroughly enjoyed. The spa offers a variety of enjoyable and relaxing treatments like Shaman’s Healing Journey, Africology Shea Aromatherapeutics, Intonga Amasatchi treatment, Soul of Africa massage, and African Goddess facial to name just a few.
