Nowadays, safari is so much more than just travelling to the African bush and seeing the Big 5. While these beautiful natural beasts in their natural habitat are still the main reason to go, some safari lodges go the extra mile to make your stay a holistic experience. One of those properties is Lion Sands River Lodge in the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve. The lodge is the epitome of style in the bush with a blend of traditional materials like thatch or wood and sleek, modern design. Earthy tones with splashes of colour make you feel right at home and create a unique atmosphere between rustic adventure and chic five-star boutique hotel.
Look forward to venturing out twice a day on a morning and afternoon game drive to track large game like elephants, buffalo and leopards as well as to discover the many secrets of the bush. If you need that extra adrenaline rush, qualified guides will take you out on a bush walk. Gather around the fire to exchange the best sightings with other travellers, before you retreat to your beautiful suite to fall asleep to the sound of laughing hyena and roaring lions – nature’s very own lullaby.
