Ivory Lodge has always been the understated jewel in the Lion Sands Game Reserve crown; a place where guests are in awe of her natural & simple beauty enhanced by the breathtaking views over the Sabie River. As travelling trends have changed, so has the style in which they are experienced and the time has come to take her into this new space where conspicuous consumption is giving way to more meaningful, personal and authentic travel experiences.


Name: Ivory Lodge

Lion Sands Game Reserve is a place that enriches one’s soul. It is an extraordinary gift passed down over generations and even for those of us who have known its sweeping landscapes since birth, it remains a place of overwhelming beauty and discovery. Our family is one of the most fortunate in the world to have the privilege of being the custodians of one of Africa’s truly unspoiled wilderness areas. In the heart of the game-rich Sabi Sand Reserve and the world-renowned Kruger National Park, we have created an iconic destination.

More about Ivory Lodge

Lion Sands Game Reserve

Each of the Villas takes its name from an indigenous bird. The Fish Eagle was Nick’s favorite and we feel, as in some traditional beliefs, that part of his soul stays with us through these birds found in abundance along the banks of the Sabie River. The Fish Eagle Villa takes pride of place in memory of him

We’ve taken our cue from Mother Nature to create a lodge built ‘of the earth’, with natural materials which will only enhance the surrounding bush environment. The timeless design incorporates steel, wood, thatch, glass, water & sand. A sophisticated mid-century architectural contemporary theme defines the interiors, with bold furniture and edgy décor, ambient lighting, inferences of tribal design and highly textured finishes – all of which combine to make Lion Sands Ivory Lodge an utterly sensory experience.
