Why we recommend Lion Sands Ivory Lodge

Lion Sands Ivory Lodge - Greater Kruger, South Africa

For additional privacy and panoramas, Villa Six of Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is the one to go for, as it is furthest from the reception, main lodge and boma. Alternatively, for the ultimate adventure, opt for a night in one of the three treehouses. Nature drives here in Greater Kruger are some of the best due to the great guiding with some of the country’s top rangers and trackers.
