    Ranger Syd and Tracker Tony did a very good job, many thanks. The Service could be a little more attentive, but however, the service was very friendly. We feel very welcome and plan to return.

    Die Lion Sands River Lodge war einfach ein großartiges Erlebnis. Die Unterkünfte sind geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bieten jeglichen Komfort. Die Safaris am Morgen und am Abend waren spektakulär. Wir haben die Big 5 und viele andere Tiere...
