Discover the thrill of a luxurious Lion Sands Safari in the Sabi Sand sector of the Great Kruger region.  This safari features Lion Sands Narina Lodge four four nights with daily game drives and optional bush walks. Narina has an air of relaxation, enhanced by natural décor and an open design extending out to generously furnished decks from where you can enjoy panoramic views of the Sabie River.

Day 1 - 4: Sabi Sands

Upon arrival at Skukuza Airport, you will be met by our representative and transferred to the exquisite Lion Sands Narina Lodge for four nights. The lodge, like the Narina Trogon bird after which it is named, is astonishingly beautiful, yet blends unassumingly into the natural environment. Perched on stilts under a canopy of 100-year-old trees just up from the water, Narina Lodge offers you a wonderful sense of remoteness and peace.  Narina Lodge has an air of relaxation, enhanced by natural décor and an open design extending out to generously furnished decks from where you can enjoy panoramic views of the Sabie River. Here you can watch the animals feeding on the riverbank and engage in the social chatter this inevitably stirs, or meditate on the rustle of the leaves. 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.

 

The Reserve
The Lion Sands private reserve conserves 10 000ha (25 000ac) of habitat within the Sabi Sand Private area and is home to the highest and most diverse concentration of wildlife in the southern hemisphere. You can see all of Africa’s iconic species here, including all of the Big Five, along with a supporting cast of no less intriguing 137 mammal species and over 450 varieties of bird – while having minimal encounters with other people.

 

Morning Safari
Wake with the dawn chorus for the day’s first game drive. While the sun is just rising, this is peak game viewing time. Encounter nocturnal animals returning to rest and others headed out to hunt. The thrill of being let in on this world (and the coffee stop) will give you a buzz.

 

Evening Safari
As the day fades, a whole other world of animals emerges into the evening. It’ll take a little more to spot them, but with your guides’ keen eyes and your senses now attuned to the sounds, scents and movements of the bush, this experience captures the very essence of safari.

 

Bush Walk
Led by your expert guides, these are our walks on the wild side. For those who want to experience the bush, beyond observing it, there is no more real excursion. Feel the grass brush your hands, hear the crunch of scrub nearby, and spot game appear just meters off – exhilarating!

 

Optional Night at Tinyeleti Treehouse
Stay one night under at a ‘million star’ accommodation at the Tinyeleti Treehouse. Romantics, adventurers, and solitude seekers alike can discover the magic of an evening out in Africa – in complete luxury. Delivered by safari vehicle to your hideout, you will spend the sunset hours enjoying a gourmet picnic and spotting the animals that wander past (at a safe distance), before turning in for the night beneath a blanket of stars.  Tinyeleti, meaning ‘many stars’, offers big views of a remote landscape, globed by an even bigger sky, its lights twinkling down to the horizon.  Please enquire about extra cost.

Departure Day

After a last exhilarating morning game drive you will return to the lodge for breakfast and time to pack up.  Transfer to Skukuza airport for your flight onward.
