The Lodge

Lion Sands is a place that enriches one’s soul. It is an extraordinary gift passed down over generations and even for those of us who have known its sweeping landscapes since birth, it remains a place of overwhelming beauty and discovery. In the heart of the game-rich Sabi Sand Reserve and the world-renowned Kruger National Park, we have created an iconic destination with Lion Sands enjoying traversing rights in both Sabi Sand and the Kruger National Park.

Enjoy the African bush in lavish comfort and style here in Sabi Sand. At Narina Lodge, guests can appreciate extraordinary wildlife and marvel at the wonderful riverside view of the famed Sabie River.

Situated among a forest of large old trees overlooking the Sabie River, Narina Lodge’s 9 Luxury Suites each afford complete privacy. Designed in such a way that whether you choose to spend time at your private plunge pool, reclining on the couch in your lounge, lazing on your bed with or soaking in a bubble bath, you will remain in sight of the beautiful panorama.
