This place is simply amazing. The front desk - staffed by wonderful people (Tammy anticipated nearly everything and immediately took care of everything else). The accommodations - a beautiful vila where you could spend all day watching animals enjoy the river (from your bed, from your plunge pool or deck, or from your living area) while enjoying a fully stocked...

There are no words to accurately describe the quality of Ivory Lodge at Lion Sands. We were greatly impressed with the professionalism and engagement of the staff as well as the conservationism it reflects. Loved every moment of our stay!!

We arrived at Ivory Lodge for the second part of our safari experience having just left a lovely tented camp. We were greeted and shown to our room which was breathtaking. There are two areas (sleeping and sitting) and the decor/design was on point. I do not know where to begin with the accolades-- The staff (Dumay, Abraham, Solly, Torrence,... More

From the moment we arrived we knew we were in good hands, private meet and greet at the airport and within 3 minutes of driving we saw our first game. On arrival at the resort another warm and friendly greeting, and I was amazed that the dirt driveway was freshly raked for each arriving 4WD - these little touches were... More

Game viewing from your deck, wifi internet, private dining in your villa, complimentary mini bar, coffee delivered to your room each morning, Nespresso coffee machine and much much more.

Our family of four rented two villas at Ivory Lodge in late August and we can't rave enough. The accommodations were spectacular and luxurious, the food was the absolute most delicious combination of gourmet and local, and our guide Dumay made this the trip of a lifetime. We were constantly in touch with the African wildlife between views of the... More
