We had a fabulous time at this hotel. The staff were most attentive and helpful, the food excellent and the hotel grounds beautiful and peaceful. The available excursions with the lions are not to be missed!
Being the start of the season, the hotel was peaceful and comfortable - just what we needed for a relaxing week.
We would highly recommend this hotel to our friends.
Hi, the past June 17th, 2010, I had a hotel reservation in the city of Pieterburg, South Africa, that I made on March 16th 2010
But, my surprise is that when I arrived to the city and the address provided, the hotel didn´t exist. We asked to a policeman and didn´t know about that brand hotel.
We Even went to the tourist information booth of the city and they told us the same answer, this hotel doesn´t exists. They also told us that the area code in the phone number of the hotel Is not the one of the city, that´s why we couldn´t call the hotel. At that moment I made a call to expedia, and the person who attend us, also tried to contact the hotel without success.
DONT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!
Lion Sands was beyond our expectations in everyway. We planned this trip as a once in a lifetime experience and within a day were thinking - we have to come back here. The staff was amazing in every way and made the entire stay much more enjoyable. The rooms were spacious and bedding and bathroom were great. The food was delicious and the evening meals varied in location with entertainment provided some nights. The safari guides and trackers were beyond belief in their knowledge of the animals, birds, plants, etc. with the opportunity to explore with your guides 6 to 8 hours a day. We are telling everyone what an amazing place this was and recommending it to all.
Family holiday with kids and parents, wanting a bit of comfort when compared with the accommodation options at the Kruger Park rest camps. Great location, forever friendly staff and comforts of a good hotel. We loved the deck for sundowners, spotting elephants with our torches at night, the buffet was diverse and plentiful, and sitting next to the file with a glass of wine whilst being entertained to some wonderful African dancing and singing! The kids had a ball watching the bushbuck that lived on the hotel grounds and our elderly parents were just as happy watching. The swimming pool was great to cool off in after a dusty day in the Kruger park, where we managed to see the Big 5 on the first day including a leopard eating an impala. A rare and special holiday it will be difficult to forget.
my husband and I now live in New Zealand for the last 5 years and we went back to SA for a holiday to visit family and we just had to fit in a few days at Oliver's Lodge it is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed and we have stayed and travelled to the UK, America, China, Australia on our next trip back to SA in 2015 we will certainly come back to Olivers - Tanya the owner is a fantastic host well done
