A luxurious safari experience in beautiful tree houses and villas
Lion Sands Ivory Lodge hugs the banks of the perennial Sabie River, where many of the region’s 200 wildlife species come to quench their thirst. Nine magnificent villas with pitched roofs and huge picture windows artfully mix slick urban style with tribal accents to create an ultra-indulgent pad, enhanced by heated plunge pools and private viewing decks.
For small groups and families, the two-bedroom Ivory Fish Eagle Villa is a superlative private retreat that comes with its own chef, field guide and vehicle, perfect for tailor-made safaris. Wind down between game drives in the private spa, have sundowners served on the fire deck, or head down to the jetty after dark to count the shooting stars.
For a once in a lifetime bush experience, the Treehouses are utterly magical: spend a night under the stars, ensconced in comfortable beds perched high above the ground, and listen to lions roar, hippos honk and leopards saw.
