Lion Sands Narina has a magical setting; its suites tucked into a canopy of trees right on the bank of the Sabie River. Staying here puts you at the heart of true big game territory, even while sitting out on the sunny deck you’re likely to see elephant, buffalo, impala or hippo down at the water’s edge.
Days at Narina Lodge start early, rising with the sun and setting out through the dawn mist to explore this private Kruger concession. Each game drive holds the promise of thrilling new sightings, as you’re entertained by the incredible knowledge of your guide and tracker team. They’re also experts at finding the animals that you want to see from the elusive black rhino to a leopard up a tree.
The lodge itself opens onto a wooden deck, built up on stilts to make the most of its Sabie River views. This main area is linked to the nine private suites via raised wooden walkways that run beneath thick green foliage. It feels rather like a luxurious treehouse, but with all the extras including your own private swimming pool.
For added adventure you can spend a night in their real treehouse, which has been described as the ultimate bush bedroom. Arrive at sunset to a delicious picnic dinner then snuggle down in your comfortable bed, listening to the distant whoop of hyena as you gaze up at a sky filled with stars
