Lion Sands Narina Lodge is perched among a canopy of 100 year old trees overlooking the Sabie River, in a prime but private game-viewing area of the Kruger National Park.
Head into the bush twice a day in the company of your professional guide and tracker and discover another thriving world. Traversing Narina's private concession also affords guests the unique opportunity of off-road safaris in search of Africa's Big 5 - lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant. The maximum number of guests in the open game viewing vehicles is just 6, making this a truly exclusive safari experience.
The perfect complement to the Narina experience is a night out under the stars. But this is no ordinary night. You are suspended beneath the Milky Way, over the African plains below - all on your own. Arrive at sunset to a scrumptious picnic dinner, and spend the hours of dusk fully appreciating the vastness of the bushveld as it transforms from day to night.
The style of Narina is that of a luxurious treehouse, where the main areas link to the 9 luxury suites via raised wooden walkways. The thick green foliage beneath the overhanging roof of trees has a particular sound to it.
The suites each afford complete privacy, and whether you choose to spend time at your private plunge pool overlooking the river, reclining on the couch in your lounge, lazing on your bed with a good book, or soaking in a bubble bath, you will not be cheated out of the breathtaking panorama.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
