Lion Sands Ivory Lodge combines an extraordinary safari experience with a stay in a stylish and thoughtfully designed space designed to be at one with the surrounds and allowing guests to experience the wilds of Africa like never before. The architect-designed lodge is a heady mix of old and new, where traditional building methods have been married with stylised innovations – like the floor to ceiling glass walls in each of the six luxury suites, designed to let in the extraordinary views and at night, a canopy of stars. Each of the villas is reached by a meandering wooden walkway and each consists of a central courtyard, an infinity pool and a luxe en-suited bedroom and living area. Whether cooling off in your private pool, enjoying a starlit bath, dozing on your four-poster bed or kicking back in the comfortable living room, the African wilds are never out of sight.
Designed to be at one with the surrounding environment, Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is certainly one of the most environmentally sensitive and stylish lodges around and worthy of its many awards. The family-run establishment prides itself on discreet and knowledgeable service and unusual offerings like overnight stays in the lodge’s own treehouse, built around a magnificent 500-year-old leadwood tree are what set it apart. Meals here are occasions in themselves especially if experienced alfresco while for those who like to stretch their legs a guided bush walk is an unforgettable experience. A hippo tour to see the reserve’s water based residents is a highlight while for those looking for an all time safari high, a balloon safari experience is one that you will never forget. One of South Africa’s most luxurious and exclusive safari getaways, Lion Sands Ivory Lodge caters for guests who relish the thought of getting away from it all in absolute style.
These New York clients had an amazing trip. With a nice budget, Liesl was able to include all her favourite places in their itinerary - More Quarters in Cape Town, Le Quartier Français and River Manor in the Winelands and Ivory Lodge for their safari. With their layover in Johannesburg, they also had a very interesting city tour.
