Review by Fiona Brown (Inverell)

Our stay at Lion Sands has been the best holiday we've ever had. We saw an enormous range of animals and each day we saw something new. Our Ranger, Deiderik and Tracker Kruger were fantastic. They taught us so much about the different species as well as entertained us with their good humour. Our Butler Elliot had the best smile (and giggle) and we enjoyed mealtimes around him. Food was superb; service excellent. Can't wait to return again one day!!!

Review by Shubhalaxmi Sinha (Mumbai)

Get ready to be thrilledfrom the moment you enter the Lion Sands Game Reserve. My husband and I were welcomed by a leopard settling down for an afternoon siesta. Later as we were having lunch on the deck of Lion Sands River Lodge, a herd of elephants joined closeby. The room was spacious . Listening to the myriad sounds of nature in the outdoor shower was a welcome change from the city's humdrum.

The game drive was exciting and our guide experienced - we followed a leopard as it criss-crossed our path. Hippos swam by in the river and python sat by it. There was a night drive in which we tracked a lioness on its hunt. More surprises were in store as we headed to tree house for the night. We had not expected such luxury under the open sky . Equipped with plenty of food from hot casseroles, water, flashlights, walkie-talkie for emergencies, a huge umbrella in case it rained ( it dd not), the tree-house was a dream come true. Watching impalas and a solitary hyena and listening to the jungle sounds at night was a once in a lifetime experience. The full-moon and twinkling starlit night gave way to the glorious morning sun which smiled as we woke up with the sky.directly above us.

That afternoon as we were enjoying a sundowner, while on the game drive, there was a call on the walkie-talkie and soon we off at top speed to see a pack of wild dogs which had entered the reserve. Our dream of seeing the elusive African Wild dog came true. Next morning as we headed back to Johannesburg for a flight to India, the same pack of dogs bade us goodbye.

Needless to say we had a wonderful time at LionSands and we hope to go back again. Thank you.
