Lion Sands Dream Lodge
Of all the private reserves in South Africa, Lions Sands Game Reserve stands out from the rest of the pack. It has a rich history dating back from 1948 when the landowners decided to form the private nature reserve. However, the credit should be given to the original pioneers of the reserve back in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. 6 of the pioneering families are currently third and fourth generation owners of the land. This is due to the foresight of their forefathers who had deep respect and love for the flora and fauna of Africa.
At Lion Sands, the African landscape goes as far as you can look. There is a lot of animals and wildlife to be seen here and a thriving ecosystem that can be attributed to the original founders of the private reserve. The Kingston tree house has all the comforts that you can experience at a five star safari lodge while being secure and lavish under the African stars. You can soak in the beauty of African sunset as day is transformed into night before enjoying a comfortable night under the amazing night sky.
The tree house is made of entirely wood and glass. The décor is contemporary with hues of gray, white, purple and black. Regardless what the Africa weather has in store, you will have a safe and comfortable setting with a huge window through which you can enjoy the ever-changing views around you. Here, you are surrounded by African bush and uninhibited wildlife and the view is definitely worth it.
You also get to enjoy an hour long massage before dinner as you relax under the stars and soak in the peaceful nature all around you. There are also yoga mats and charts available in case you need to meditate.
The Lion sands Kruger national park has an exceptional scenery with wildlife to match. There are buffalos and white rhinos in the thickly wooded south-western section of the park. You can take a safari drive here and enjoy the view of animals coming to the Crocodile and Olifants rivers to quench their thirst in the African sun. There are also lots of wildebeests, giraffes, zebras and impalas in the southern section of the national park. Lions are also popular in these areas because of the abundance of game to hunt. After just a couple of days at Lion sands game reserve, you will most definitely have spotted all the big five namely; lions, leopards, elephants, Cape buffalo and black rhino. This is the place to be.
