You’re treated like family at Lion Sands Game Reserve, owned by the More family for four generations. Set along the banks of the Sabie River and attracting abundant "big five" wildlife from Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Kruger National Park, Lion Sands has four luxurious lodges: River Lodge, Ivory Lodge, Tinga Lodge, and Narina Lodge. To get above the bush, reserve one of the three Treehouse experiences. Enjoy daily game drives, nature walks, a hippo tour, and a bush dinner with stargazing. Visit the local Huntington village to meet the children and teachers of Henna and Jabez preschools, via Lion Sands’ community outreach program.


Insider Tip

Guest proceeds support children in the nearby Huntington community by offering free education, along with two meals a day; they also help fight rhino poaching.
