Amazing Experience

Brookline, Massachusetts

This was my first safari and will not be my last. Everything about the experience was top notch including the food and accommodations. The staff were phenomenal. The trackers and guides were knowledgeable and ensured a very memorable experience.

PERFECT AMAZING WONDERFUL!!!

Cold Spring Harbor, New York

We stayed at Lion Sands River Lodge for 3 nights in January. We CANNOT say enough amazing things about this place! It felt like out of a dream or an old Hollywood movie. Our room was incredible, Darren at the front desk was incredibly helpful. We ABSOLUTELY LOVED our guide Aidan and our tracker Eddy, we had an absolute blast with them and they were both so excited and passionate about their jobs and the wildlife. It was truly the most amazing and unique experience of our lives, we are already figuring out when we can come back!!! The food was also incredible as were the facilities. We had a couples massage one day which we would also highly recommend. It was overall the most amazing experience 5/5 doesn’t do if justice !
