The Ultimate Luxury Experience

Johannesburg, South Africa

Where do I begin. This place is by far the most luxurious and breathtaking experience in the bush. It's the best experience I have had. We had the best butler (Ben) who made our many requests seem like it was nothing. Our knowledgeable tracker (Joe) could spot animal foot prints while we were driving and would tell you in which direction the animal went and he was always right. Our guide (Michael) made each game drive an adventure. It would with a goal that we set for ourselves and we would go on to achieve that goal. In the one game drive we had two separate sightings of leopards on a tree with a kill (one of the sightings the leopard was still feeding on the kill which is a rare experience). The villa was elegantly decorated and beautiful. The view from the pool looking out to the Sabie River was something to behold. Our early morning snack before the morning game drive was delivered to our room without disturbing us which saved us a walk to the main dinning area to get our smoothie. As with all the other Lion Sands lodges, the food is amazing and definitely at par with some of the best fine dinning restaurants. Robert More and the team definitely thought about every little thing to make our stay memorable. We are already planning our next trip to Ivory Lodge.

Stay at Ivory

Johannesburg, South Africa

Was disappointed as advert misleading. Only small rooms. Although clean and neat. Never let on that it was a community kitchen for 10 units. Kettle in room but no cups. Hated the orange painted fake rocks everywhere! Did not belong in the bush! Not welcomed on arrival and and had cold showers on a very cold weekend
