Lion Sands Narina Lodge

Lion Sands is the only private reserve rooted in both the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve and Kruger National Park allowing for exclusive traversing on private concessions. Lion Sands conserves 30,600 acres of a habitat that is home to the highest and most diverse concentration of wildlife in the southern hemisphere offering exceptional game-viewing opportunities. Lion Sands Narina Lodge is a place nurturing natural beauty. Perched on stilts under a canopy of 100-year-old trees just up from the water, Narina Lodge offers guests a wonderful sense of remoteness and peace, and panoramic views of the Sabie River from the main lodge or one of the nine private luxury suites. Like the Narina Trogon bird after which it is named, the lodge is astonishingly beautiful, yet blends unassumingly into the natural environment. Leading off from the main lodge, raised wooden walkways connect to a spa sala and nine individual Suites. Narina Lodge offers exclusive accommodation, with private plunge pools and viewing decks overlooking the river.

Room Information

This lodge is built to afford complete privacy in a wilderness where you can watch the animals come down to the river from your pool, deck, bed and bath. The Suites are on stilts among 100-year-old trees just up from the water, and link to a spa sala and intimate lodge via elevated walkways. Glass sliding doors and windows open your sanctuary to the outside.

Things To Do

Game Drives
Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in search of the Big Five. With exclusive traversing rights on both Lion Sands’ Sabi Sand and Kruger Park sections, guests are assured a truly intimate safari experience.

Bush Walks
Immerse yourself in the bush, rather than just observing it. All five senses are engaged, as you feel scrub crunch beneath your feet, touch the velvety acacia seed pod, hear the crack of a branch indicating they are not alone, and spot big game at eye level – exhilarating!

Local Community Experiences
An opportunity to experience a different – and humbling – way of living by visiting culturally- and historically-significant sites to connect with local people.

During evening game drives or bush dinners (weather permitting), the field guides will share insights into the skies.

A Night in a Treehouse
The million-star Chalkley and Kingston (Sabi Sand) and Tinyeleti (Kruger Park) are the ultimate bush bedrooms, where romantics, adventurers and solitude seekers alike can discover the magic of a night out in African – in complete luxury. A Treehouse Experience is booked in conjunction with lodge accommodation.

Spa and Wellness
The hours between safaris are an ideal time to spend being pampered with a selection of indulgent therapies offered by expert therapists in the quiet retreat of the lodges’ spas or open-air bush salas.
