General information

The international award winning Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is ultra luxurious, yet simple and uncluttered. The Lodge has been built on the banks of the Sabie River with lovely views extending onto the open sand banks of the Kruger National Park.

Overriding exclusivity with complete privacy, Lion Sands Ivory Lodge operates each suite as a private villa. Neither word nor photograph can capture the sense of the pure beauty which is breathed in when opening the carved wooden doors leading into this private recluse – arguably the world’s finest suite.

There are six of these ultra luxurious suites with en-suite bathroom, outdoor & inside shower, courtyard, lounge with fireplace, wooden viewing deck & private plunge pool. The suites are positioned at least twenty meters apart and you can game view from the luxury of your private suite.

Ivory Lodge was awarded third best hotel in the world by Tatler Magazine in 2006 and has been included in their “101 Best Hotels in the World” 2006 & 2007 listings. The Lodge is also a proud member of Virtuoso, the largest exclusive by invitation only travel network group in the world.

The public areas at Ivory Lodge have a private bar with fireplace, a library lounge, well stocked wine cellar, wooden viewing decks, a magnificent River Island Deck built on the river, Lalamuka Health Spa & gymnasium, curio shop & both an indoor and open-air (Boma) dining area.
