Lion Sands Game Reserve
Water and wildlife make the Lion Sands Game Reserve one of the most desirable destinations for a safari in South Africa. Positioned in the southern part of the 160,550-acre Sabi Sand Game Reserve, the private park has exclusive access to the streams of the Sabie River, a major tributary in South Africa that runs about 140 miles in length. The Sabie’s inviting riverbanks draw an abundant amount of wildlife seeking to escape the heat and bask in the river’s waters.
Animals that can be seen at the reserve include the “Big Five” — lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes, along with cheetahs, crocodiles, giraffes, hippopotamuses, hyenas, waterbucks, wildebeests, zebras and a variety of bird species.
