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.
We have both been lucky enough to visit a number of game lodges and we chose this one as we had read such fantastic reviews. Well it lived up to them all and some. The staff were so friendly and efficient, nothing was too much trouble. The room was beautiful and spacious with fabulous views of the waterhole (number 8). The food was extremely good and so much of it.
The game drives were superb, both the guide and the tracker were so intent on ensuring that we saw as much as we could and were constantly explaining interesting facts relating to the animals and area. We enjoyed every minute and were very sad to leave. We would recommend this to anybody who wants a 5* experience both in the lodge and out in the bush.
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.
