Sabi Sands

Lion Sands Narina Lodge

‘Close to Nature with Panoramic Views’

Lion Sands Narina Lodge is situated on a private concession within the world famous Kruger National Park. Narina Lodge and its suites are situated on raised wooden platforms, nestled amidst the canopy of the trees. Each luxurious suite has a private plunge pool and viewing deck with views of the Sabie River and the bushveld beyond. Meals are served at the main lodge and guests are offered the chance of twice daily game drives. The drives are held in the early morning and early evening and trained rangers will take guests to see some of the wild animals of Africa in their natural habitat. After the evening game drive, guests are served dinner and are free to relax with a drink, swap safari stories and listen to the roar of the lions in the distance.

In Our Opinion

‘A truly majestic lodge – sit by a roaring fire under a high thatched ceiling and look out at the bushveld, feeling like you’re the last person left on earth. Memories made here will last a lifetime.’

There is no designated on-site restaurant in the traditional sense of the word at Lion Sands.  Beautiful home cooked food is served in the homely surroundings of the lodge, at normal meal time intervals. Food will be provided if safaris are taking place over meal times.
