Just returned from our first trip to Africa. What is not to love about LION SANDS IVORY LODGE! Since this was our first trip, first safari experience, we had nothing to compare this experience to. When we first arrived, after taking a little 2 seater plane to the tiny airport, we were met by our ride to what we thought... More

Fabulous place to experience, the rooms are more like villas, spectacular, very plush. Safari each morning was good but didnt see that many animals. Ranger was very good. Food was good but not all to my taste but my partner loved it. Cant fault Ivory Sands. Well Done!

Ivory Lodge was absoutely fantastic. It is the ultimate in exclusive luxury. There are only 6 units at Ivory Lodge and each is extremely private. I am unable to comment on price, because we had a package put together by www.roarafrica.com. From the service, to the rooms, to the safari, to the food, to the wine. You name it, it... More

Just returned from a four night visit with my wife and two children in their twenties. First of all, I had never been to Africa or on any safari so I imagined "Out of Africa" and the Serengeti. Well, it is entirely different with heavily wooded property and no huge migrating herds. With the exception of cheatas, all the rest... More

If you love privacy, then this is for you. Massive accommodations with immaculate stylish decor with well thought out additional extras in bungalows. Perfect for a celebrity hideaway. Outstanding service and food.

There are not enough superlatives to accurately describe this property. The "villas" are gorgeous, Fire places, splash pools, verandas overlooking river where animals come up to drink, 2 safari drives a day, dinner in the "bush" etc. etc. etc.

The Ivory Lodge provides everything one hopes for in a luxury safari vacation-and then some. The game viewing is spectacular, the clientele well heeled but low key. The service is unobtrusive and excellent. The individual lodges need to be experienced to be believed.My husband and I have travelled the world- Ivory Sands is as luxurious and special as travel gets.

We stayed for four days in April and it was the most amazing experience ever. I am not an outdoorsy person, and have a massive case of arachnophobia - but I have survived it, and loved it. I would like to break the myth that you cannot get good service in Africa: service was stunning at the Ivory Lodge (as... More
