Lion Sands River Lodge

Lion Sands River Lodge with its uber-trendy take on a traditional safari lodge is another firm favourite of ours. With its clean lines, amazing sightings and I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-Michelin fare, it’s a dose of Sabi Sand magic. We love, love, love the natural fibres and furnishings. And Lion Sands River Lodge has its own Creative Lab, a particularly cool idea. Here, you can spend a pleasurable siesta-hour processing your morning game-drive shots (there’s a lightroom guru on standby if you need a few pointers) before printing a few out on the very fancy-schmancy printer. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, along comes the game-viewing to steal the show.


Stuff we love

Sabi Sand magic

  • Digging your toes into the sand of the sunken fire pit as you swap sighting stories over a glass of merlot.
  • Impressing your friends and family back home with enormous prints of that leopard you “just happened to snap a few shots of”.
  • Working off your afternoon tea in the gym – followed by a stiff G&T. Life’s all about balance, right?
