Staying in the Lion Sands Game Reserve introduces visitors to a whole new way of life. Traversing across the vast plains and encountering free-roaming wildlife is a normal activity in the wilderness. In addition to this transition to the other side, ordinary activities are enhanced by the authenticity of Africa.
Game viewing is at the top of the food chain of activities when in Lion Sands and can be consumed in various ways. Game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles and bush walks alongside a trained guide explore the entire area of wildlife whereas other activities explore a specific ecosystem on a more intimate level. Meet the grey giants of the bush in an unforgettable elephant interaction experience or will walk with intimate herds and embrace the majesty of Africa.
Bird watching, river walks and hippo tours see the interactive water ecosystems, including the fauna and flora of the water channels.
