Ivory Lodge

16 guests · 8 bedrooms · 8 baths
Set out to find Africa’s big 5, right after a catered breakfast and a guided bushwalk each morning at this compound-style safari lodge in Kruger National Park. Awarded a five-star-premium rating from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa, this 16-guest safari home is one of the finest in the country. You’ll embark on 2 guided vehicle tours each day, with plenty more options to add on.
Located within the Lion Sands Game Reserve, at the confluence of the Sabi and Sand rivers, Ivory Lodge and its 8 one-bedroom villas are ready to host your large group. Decorated with warm wood tones and modern furnishings, this open-air villa features incredible views from numerous vantage points. The staff will take care of stocking refreshments, all your meals, and anything else that may arise. Your only job is to spot as many of the reserve’s 137 mammals and 450 types of birds as possible. After a long day searching out the big 5, gather around the campfire to recount tales, check out your pictures, and try premium local beers and wine from the maxibar.
The next day, start your exploration with a guided bushwalk and a picnic breakfast. If you’re sticking to a fitness routine, sign up for a yoga class by the river, workout in the home gym, or swim a few laps in the pool. If you’d really like to rejuvenate, book yourself in at the Wilderness Spa.
