The lodge is situated in the luxurious Sabi Sands Game Reserve. This reserve is next to the Kruger National Park and boasts a diverse range of African wildlife. There are no fences between the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and Kruger Park. Therefore, African wildlife is free to explore over both areas.
River Lodge is the origin of the Lion Sands safari - our soul safari. This lodge is located within 12km of Skukuza Airport. The reserve offers a unique programme of activities for guests to tailor-make their stay, including the iconic Treehouse experiences (Chalkley Treehouse and Kingston Treehouse). Living spaces include a Safari Lounge and Bar; Barista’s Station with artisanal coffees; Gallery (showcasing the works of renowned local artists); and OneLife MORE boutique.. 
Sabi Sand Reserve
Here guests can expect a sophisticated interpretation of the traditional safari lodge, with an emphasis on clean lines, optimised natural light and contemporary décor!
River Lodge - River Lodge comprises 8 Luxury Rooms, 6 Superior Luxury Rooms, and 4 private River Suites further away from the main lodge – each with their own private plunge pools, and one with a second children’s bedroom. A shared guest pool is located off the main lodge area.
Kingston Treehouse (Sabi Sands Reserve) - Constructed entirely from wood and glass, with contemporary décor in understated hues of greys, white, black and purple. Make your way through rows of magnificent white boulders and across a small drawbridge, and you will find Africa unfolding in front if you.
Chalkley Treehouse (Sabi Sands Reserve) - The original Treehouse. Guy Aubrey Chalkley once set up camp in a majestic centuries-old Leadwood Tree to escape the predators roaming the plains below. We decided that this would be the ideal place to build the ultimate bush bedroom, and so came to be The Chalkley Treehouse. A secure and lavish platform under the stars, the treehouse has all the 5-star comforts, but affords an experience as wild as the animals that roam beneath it. As it sleeps two guests it is perfect for Honeymoon getaways.
