"Exceptional property/over-the-top spectacular views from our room and loved our personal butler and also personal dining assistant "Sully". Our tracker and ranger were the "A+" team. Highly recommend!"

- Rene

"We spent 3 days at Ivory Lodge and enjoyed the beautiful room, the excellent service from all staff, the very good food, well prepared and presented and the interesting and varied game drives with a knowledgeable ranger."

- Pat

"From the exceptional service to the incredible memories the staff created for us, the Ivory Lodge is a magical place! We spent a little more money on safari here thinking it would be a once in a lifetime experience, but coming out of it we've vowed to go back. Every detail from the incredible food (and a lot of it) to the impressive skills and fabulous personalities of the rangers and trackers in finding each of the Big 5 plus so many more and the simply perfect guest suites, we were spoiled from head to toe. We'll be back - and I cannot wait!"

- Aubree

"We stayed at the Lodge for 4 nights in early October. Our stay was a wonderful experience and the accommodation is outstanding. The service we experienced from all members of the Lion Sands team was considerate and caring, without being over the top. Our ranger, Neil, and tracker, Albert, deserve particular mention for their knowledge, friendliness and patience with our questions. We were asked on a number of occasions what we wanted to see and where possible (animals willing), they did their best to ensure we saw what we wanted. Regarding the game drive experience, there are no words to describe how awesome and wonderful it is to see the animals living naturally from so close up - seeing lion cubs and young leopards next to the Jeep was fantastic. We were privileged to see leopards mating, which we were told was a rare sight. The Ivory Lodge team ensured that we experienced hospitality in a range of different ways during our stay: including dining with other guests and Neil by oil lamp in the Boma, dining in our room, dining on our own, a night in Kingston tree house and breakfast at Wart hog Hollow in front of a watering hole. Tammy made sure we we warmly greeted and looked after during our (too brief) stay. Overall one of the best holiday experiences we have ever had."

- Claire

"We stayed at this resort in March 2013 for two nights. This hotel is stunning as was our room. I can't remember the name of the room that we stayed in but they are all named after different types of birds! Our room overlooked a beautiful river and one day when we were sitting out there enjoying our private pool a herd of elephants came walking along down the bank to bathe in the river! It was truly spectacular! The staff was friendly and the food was excellent. We hope to be able to stay here another time in the future!"

- Sara

"Our visit to Lion Sands - Ivory Lodge was nothing short of an amazing vacation. We were in awe about our room and how accommodating the entire staff was during our stay. From our first greeting by Tammy and Patricia, to Solly and the team, and of course our guide and tracker - Landon and Eddy, we had the perfect vacation. As we said when we left, its not a matter of will be back, its just when!! We have told so many friends and family that Lion Sands is where they should plan their safari/vacation experience. We cannot thank the Lion Sands family enough for our first (of hopefully many!) safaris at Lion Sands."

- Kristen

"“We just experienced a wonderful week in the Ivory Lodge of Lion Sands. Five Star! The ranger and tracker were excellent and the animal viewing greatly exceeded our expectations. This is our second visit to Lion Sands and we would not consider going anywhere else. The people are simply outstanding and the service beyond comprehension. The family that owns Lion Sands does a great job of truly making you feel at home. As part of the experience we saw many many beautiful animals, and we actually saw the Big Five more than once. As well as more than one endangered species of birds. If you go anywhere other than here... you are making a mistake."

- Gordon

"If you want the most amazing safari experience, this is the place. From the minute you are shown into your private, exclusive lodge, you are in the lap of luxury. Your own private infinity pool within your own lodge (and a glass of red wine floats while you listen to hippos in the river after your evening game drive!), gourmet meals, private bar stocked with whatever you drink - or socialise in the bar before dinner after your game drive. Friendly and knowledgeable rangers and trackers ensure you get the best photographs and up close and personal game viewings imaginable. This was the best 4 days holiday I've ever experienced in over 105 countries holidays. I can't recommend this highly enough. I hope I will go back again!"

- Joan

"We stayed at the lion sands ivory lodge for 4 nights of utter magic. The experience was unforgettable. Both the safari and the accommodations were beyond our expectation. The service and the entire staff could not have been more friendly or have pampered us more. Trip of a lifetime!"

- Lynette
