The Ivory lodge is WOW! The private rooms are beautiful with a private pool, outdoor lounge area and outdoor shower option. I could have stayed there forever! The rooms were very clean and provided everything we needed and more. The only complaint I have about the ivory lodge is the Treehouse experience. We booked to stay in the Kingston treehouse...

The other reviews say it all - beautifully designed rooms with every amenity overlooking the river, with infinity pool. A few days right there would be enough but then add in two game drives where we saw the big five and more, three wonderful meals, drinks whenever and wherever, and lucky enough to have four great drive companions with two...

My wife and I stayed here after visiting Narina Lodge in the same ownership. Ivory Lodge was stunning with only 6 suites and a few days of absolute pampering and professional service. Having arrived early afternoon and telling our Field Ranger that we had seen the 'big 5' on our Narina Lodge visit, he pulled out the stops and gave... More

this place exceeded all our expectations!!! The service was great, the rooms were absolutely awesome with a river view and personal infinity pools and we got to see the big 5 and more. It was like absolute magic, better than we could have ever hoped for!

Magnificent accomodations. Fantastic animal sightings. A once in a lifetime experience. Safari trips were well planned and sundowners were terrific. Various dining locations and events were first class.

This place is incredible! The standard of the villa and the whole resort is exceptional. We watched elephants drinking from the river and a leopard from our pool during the day! Cant recommend it enough!

Lion Sands is a great place, i don't want to knock it. I just think we were a bit spoiled in spending 4 days at Londolozi beforehand and thus having a very high bar set for the entire safari experience. First off, the rooms are incredible. Decked out luxury in every way. Huge bedroom encased all in glass, with an... More

I am not normally compelled to write reviews but this experience has to be shared as it moved our family so much. We traveled with our 13 yr old son to Ivory lodge mid October and stayed for 4 nights. The accommodation was beautiful with a fabulous bedroom, lounge and patio including plunge pool, and a view over the river... More

Exceptional property/over-the-top spectacular views from our room and loved our personal butler and also personal dining assistant "Sully". Our tracker and ranger were the "A+" team. Highly recommend!

We stayed at the lion sands ivory lodge for 4 nights of utter magic. The experience was unforgettable. Both the safari and the accommodations were beyond our expectation. The service and the entire staff could not have been more friendly or have pampered us more. Trip of a lifetime!
