Lion Sands River Lodge, Sabi Sands Reserve, pool

The swimming pool is arguably the best game viewing spot in the summer months. With an uninterrupted view of the river and the rising bush beyond it is not uncommon to spot an elephant or giraffe while doing backstroke.

 

Everything you'd expect to find in a shop in the middle of nowhere: Bush wear, beautiful African arts and crafts; reminders of a unique holiday; postcards to 'rub it in' to those back home and of course, the camera film and sun lotion you forgot to pack.

 Lion Sands River Lodge, Sabi Sands Reserve, cuisine - food

 The Lion Sands culinary experience is as diverse and interesting as the African bushveld itself. Janine Hobbs, our Executive Chef, together with her team use imagination, passion and natural flair to produce the most delicious and unique food. Whether it is buffets on the banks of the Sabie River under glittering starlit skies with lions roaring in the distance or fine dining under  magical African Acacias, Janine and her Chefs produce the most amazing dishes which carry the exotic flair of local culture. During your stay you will be offered interesting delights such as Zebra & Black Cherry Potjie, Crocodile Kebabs with a Lemon Butter & Apricot Sauce, Blesbok Fillet stuffed with Peanut Butter & Fresh Coriander or even Baby Quails stuffed with Fresh Figs & Porcini Brie Cheese. The less adventurous can savour Pinotage Marinated Beef Fillet or Cajun Style Spatchcock Chicken. Sticky Chocolate Pudding, Traditional Milk Tarts and fresh fruit are what you can expect if you do have a sweet tooth. Magnificent sunsets can be enjoyed on game drive with a glass of chilled wine and a platter of South African cheeses, homemade samoosas and, of course, South Africa's traditional spicy beef biltong. All pastries and breads are freshly made daily in the kitchen by the pastry chefs and a freshly baked buttermilk and raison rusk while watching the sun rise puts the cherry on top of a most wonderful African culinary experience.
