What we love about Lion Sands River Lodge
- Enjoy the very robust and flavoursome oxtail dish and cool off after a successful day of game viewing with a refreshing glass of homemade iced tea.
- Get even closer to nature by experiencing an exciting sleep out in the bush, in one of the lodge’s superb treehouses. Guests can choose to go out to the treehouses at sunset or after dinner. If you leave at sunset you can enjoy a delicious picnic hamper in the comfort of the treehouse – you’ll be dropped off by your ranger and radios are supplied in case you want to be picked up at a different time.
- The lovely wine tasting evenings – ask your concierge for more details!
