Refresh with a dip in your private, deck-side plunge pool before taking in the surrounding landscape. Lion Sands is one of only seven private concessions in Kruger National Park. This 12,500- acre landscape is home to the highest concentration of black rhinos in South Africa, and the only private reserve with access to both the Sabie and Sand rivers, enhancing the diversity of game viewing.
