The Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is for those in search of utter exclusivity. Just eight water-side Villas emerge from a riverscape that sees the passage of much of the reserve’s wildlife.

  • Spectacular setting on the banks of the Sabie River with beautiful views
  • Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for an exclusive safari experience.

The detail

Ivory Lodge is the understated jewel in the Lion Sands' crown. Here, hospitality is designed entirely around YOU (from customised spa therapies and private dining, to safaris with surprise refreshment stops) and luxury – much more than a sophisticated room in an exotic location – has substance.

The lodge’s eight one-bedroom Villas, set secluded at the confluence of the Sabie and Sand rivers, are the ultimate bush retreats. Your private lounge, patio, deck and pool invite easy relaxation, while a dedicated team of staff are always on hand to take care or your every whim and fancy. Everything is included – from a champagne-stocked maxibar, to the washing and pressing of your favourite shirt – to create a highly-personalised experience of a safari, your way.

The lodge also includes the two-bedroom Fish Eagle Villa, and offers the ultimate in private luxury and personalised service for a family or group of friends. Everything is included – from your own pool and spa, to personal chef, field guide and game viewer vehicle – for a tailor-made South African safari. You and your tribe would be hard-presssed to find a more idyllic spot to base yourselves.

I took my whole family (wife, 2 kids and mum and dad) to Ivory Lodge in July. We had an incredible time. The rooms were fantastic, with beautiful views of the river where elephants, buffalo and other animals regularly came to drink.The food was fantastic, and Aubrey our butler was a gem. They catered for our kids perfectly and arranged a special breakfast in a tree-house.The highlight, however, was the game drives. Landon and Eddie were geniuses and we had the most awesome experiences. In total in Africa we did 16 game drives, but the 4 at Ivory Lodge were the highlight. We saw all the key animals, but had particularly amazing experiences with a den of African wild dogs (mum, dad, 8 cubs) and den of spotted Hyena (mum and 3 babies) and leopards (including mum and cub eating an animal under a tree).We've been fortunate to stay at many luxury hotels around the world and this one stacks up big time.
Beginning with the accommodations - one word - beautiful! You walk through heavy double doors to a very large deck area that divides your bedroom and bath from your living room. All furnished in contemporary style, it us pleasing to the eye and quite comfortable. The deck area has two wonderfully comfortable chaise lounges, and a seating area much like an outdoor living room. The is a small infinity plunge pool to soak in and a gorgeous view of the river. Our arrival was met with a large herd of water buffalo just across the river and a number of hippos frolicking in the river. Our bed Was festooned with a warm personal welcome greeting in flowers. The bath has double sinks, a free standing oval tub overlooking the enormous outdoor shower (there is also an indoor shower). The staff can't do enough for you. They are all fabulous. We has the good fortune to have Solly as our butler. You have never seen such a big, broad smile (always). The game drives early morning and late afternoon/evening were rewarding. Saw the "big five" almost daily. The elusive leopard was there on our very first drive and on a couple of night drives (with family). There were three female lions with one male and five cubs on one drive. We were able to stop and observe them for close to an hour. The playful cubs trying their agility walking on a log, trying desperately to pick up twigs in their little paws and finally tired and played out, they resorted to nursing. All in all, it was four magical days. If this sounds too perfect, the only drawback were the dinners. Breakfasts and lunches were good, but dinners could have been greatly improved.

Magnificent accommodations. Fantastic animal sightings. A once in a lifetime experience. Safari trips were well planned and Sun-Downers were terrific. Various dining locations and events were first class.
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!
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 imagineanle. 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!
