Lion Sands Game Reserve has a range of different activities to cater for both exhiliration and relaxation.

Star gazing

The clear air and minimal artificial light found within this remote African wilderness make it an ideal stargazing location. During evening game drives, your field guide will point out planets and stars you’ve never seen before with the naked eye while telling you more about the constellations, taking you on a night sky safari.

Game drives

Lion Sands has a unique position, being the only reserve that is in both the Kruger Park and the Sabi Sands, makes it the only private reserve with access to over 10km of Sabie River. This firmly differentiates it when compared to other private reserves.

Off-road game drives, in open safari vehicles, head out at sunrise and again in the late afternoon with exclusive traversing rights in Sabi Sand and Kruger Park.

Bush walks

Led by expert field guides, these are our after-breakfast walks on the wild side. You are immersed in the bush, all five senses engaged, as you feel scrub crunch beneath your feet, touch the velvety acacia seedpod, and hear a twig snap. It's exhilarating!
