Lion Sands Ivory Lodge enjoys a privileged location within the historic Lion Sands private game reserve bordering Kruger National Park. Winner of multiple international awards, the lodge is the apex of luxury and exclusivity. Each of its six suites is operated as a private villa, for the utmost in privacy and personalized service. Villas have a separate living room, heated swimming pool, and an open en suite bathroom with private outdoor shower. The ebony and ivory color scheme is interpreted in contemporary furnishings, while African accessories blend old-world character with new stylings to create Afro-Euro chic. Ghe Sabie River, with flowing water year-round, is on display through each villa’s oversized windows and from private viewing terraces. Baby elephants bathing in the river, zebra, gnu and large crocodiles are the only neighbors you’ll see. Public areas at Ivory Lodge include a library lounge, private bar with fireplace, well-stocked wine cellar, health spa and gym, curio shop, and a magnificent wooden viewing deck built over the river. Both indoor and outdoor boma dining are available.
Another Ivory Lodge highlight is its romantic treehouses, which offer a magical night of luxury under the stars. Guests arrive at sunset for a picnic dinner, as dusk begins to envelop the vast bushveld. When it's time to turn in, you'll sleep beneath the Milky Way, where you may well lose count of the shooting stars – it's like you're in a planetarium surrounded by the sounds of African animals below you! Three treehouses are available to book in conjunction with your accommodation. Guests pack an overnight bag with essentials, leaving other belongings back in their villas at the lodge.
