Lion Sands Game Reserve is an hour’s flight from Johannesburg and two hours from Cape Town and comprises of four luxury lodges, each with their own distinct personality. Lion Sands Game Reserve is the only privately-owned reserve in both Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the Kruger National Park. The reserve is separated by the Sabie River and wildlife can roam freely through the reserve. The Luxury Travel Bible’s personal favourite lodge is the Narina Lodge and its open design from where guests enjoy panoramic views of the Sabie River. With a glass of South African wine in hand you can spend hours on the furnished decks watching the animals feeding on the riverbank. Guests wanting to see the Big Five should book onto a Dawn/Dusk Safari Game Drive.
Lion Sands Game Reserve is especially renowned for leopard viewing.
