Together they form Lion Sands Kruger National Park, a unique product in an incredible location. Fantastic accommodation and guiding have been combined with first-class service and accommodation to ensure guests here enjoy a truly memorable safari experience.

Each of the huge suites offers guests an indulgent private base for their safari; luxurious accommodation consists of king size or twin beds with en-suite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers and baths with views over the river. There's a separate sitting area and sliding doors lead out on to the private deck, complete with plunge pool and a shaded sitting area.
