Above and beyond !

New York City, New York

Lion Sands River Lodge is one of a kind! The facilities and staff make you feel like home and everything from the service to the food to the tours was top notch and fun! They personalize the experience for you which really sends the level of service above the bar compared to anywhere else I have ever been! The food was amazing, our guide was very knowledgeable and fun! We will certainly be returning and spreading the word to our family and friends. Not a single thing was wrong with any part of the trip!

Amazing experience

The lodge, the grounds, the staff, the guide and everyone involved was phenomenal. We had an amazing experience and are looking forward to coming back. Our guide Motne was kind to everyone including the animals. He went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met. The room was beautiful and so was the rest of the hotel.
