Relish the zenith of luxury at Lion Sands Ivory Lodge in the ultimate safari destination - the Sabi Sand.
Guests are met at O R Tambo International in Johannesburg or any other location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria where they board a scheduled charter bound for the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Lion Sands Ivory Lodge is one of the finest lodges in South Africa and will be your home for three nights while you enjoy exclusive safari game drives in South Africa’s most coveted safari area.
In addition to the Big Five, many antelope and other mammal species may be spotted on the early morning and late afternoon game drives conducted on this day. The most prevalent of these species are the blue wildebeest and zebra, which often graze together to better detect lurking predators. The thickets surrounding watercourses should offer the opportunity to view the elusive bushbuck or nyala. Giraffe, hippo and crocodile may also provide guests with memorable sightings in this safari area.
Two game drives and a bush walk will bring guests close to the famous Big Five; lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino. Walking through a wilderness area with nothing but a guide and his rifle to protect you is a surprisingly peaceful experience. Once you overcome the fear of being in the wild with nothing to separate you from the animals, your senses reawaken and begin to tune themselves into the immediate smells, sights, and sounds of the African wilderness - an experience that will live with you for a lifetime.
The bushveld bids you farewell on a final morning game drive. The game drive is followed by breakfast after which guests board a charter flight to Johannesburg where an unforgettable exclusive safari in the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve comes to an end.
