A special mention must go to Nick our game ranger, Nick knew everything there was to know about the animals, birds & even the insets, what a delightful young man in... More

We spent two excellent days and nights at Lions Valley Lodge, where absolutely everything was of the highest standard with great attention to detail. We were made to feel very welcome from the second we arrived, and the personal level of service showed to us by the staff, particularly Joe, was fantastic. The food was delicious and varied, with a... More

I spent three nights at Lions Valley Lodge recently with my parents. The staff could not have been more accommodating and welcoming. Excellent service. Great food. Accommodation was superb! Game drive guides were both knowledgable and personable - it was a pleasure to be on drives with them. Thank you for a lovely stay!

In a group of four, we spent four nights at Lions Valley Reserve and can only say great things about it. Like other reviews - the accommodation was outstanding with beautiful views across the reserve from the deck. We stayed in the Africa and Bird suites - beautifully decorated throughout, with super comfy beds, super quiet to sleep at night,... More

The lodge is a paradise - nestled in a stunning valley with most stylish interior design! Being so integrated in the landscape we were sunbathing on the porch with the Buffalos coming along for a dip in the pond not being bothered at all ... Same did Rhinos, Kudus, Impalas, Giraffes and ... The team is a dream and makes... More

We stayed here in two adjacent rooms, Bird and Africa. Spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms. The lodge is very nice with great view over a waterhole and the surrounding hills. We saw many animals from the veranda. Great food, nice staff and our ranger Nick was great. We saw 4 of the big 5 on our two days stay.... More

We spent 2 nights at the lodge inside Nambiti. The view from the lodge was great with animals coming down to drink at the dam all through the day. The staff were always friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. Chef Kim prepared beautiful meals which left no one wanting (including me with vegan food). We were super impressed by the whole...

We have been privileged to have visited many of the top lodges in Africa over the past 30 years. In all honesty I must say the Zebra Suite is up there with the best. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient.Nothing is too much trouble. The food was equally good. The game viewing is not the best we have experienced... More
