On arrival at Skukuza Airport you will be met and transferred to Lion Sands Game Reserve. Lion Sands is a private game reserve within the Sabi Sand Reserve, and has a private concession within the Kruger National Park so safaris are not confined to main roads or restricted to specific times. The Sabi Sand Reserve is home to a vast natural animal population including The Big Five.
Rise at sunrise to head into the wild with your Field Guide and Tracker and discover a world usually only reserved for your screen during ‘Animal Planet’. You’ll find yourself in an environment that is as old as time, where the rhythm of nature is the only Governor. Two safaris take place each day – in the morning and late afternoon (moving into the early evening). This is when the wildlife is most active, and the temperature more moderate.
Your Guides are able to navigate through dense bush, following the tracks of animals. With a limited number of vehicles on each property, and strict criteria governing sightings, guests are able to spend extended periods of time watching wildlife in its natural habitat.
Your guide will discuss with you the options available today. This could involve a game drive, a bush walk or a relaxing sleep in.
This evening you will spend a night under the stars in a secluded Treehouse. The Lion Sands Treehouses are the ultimate bush bedrooms. 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. Slumber directly beneath the Milky Way where you may well lose count of the shooting stars.
The Treehouses at Lion Sands are for the hopeless romantic (ideal as a wedding or anniversary treat), the adventurer, the person who needs a complete disconnect and digital detox, or the wildlife enthusiast who prefers the bush au-natural.
All of the Treehouses are securely constructed above the ground, where animals will remain at a safe and comfortable distance. Your Guide will provide a full orientation when he drops guests off before sunset, and will remain on call via the radio left behind until it is time to leave the following morning after sunrise and a good cup of coffee!
The Treehouses, including Chalkley’s Treehouse and Kingston Treehouse (Sabi Sand), and Tinyeleti Treehouse (Kruger National Park) are booked in conjunction with your accommodation. Pack an overnight bag with your essentials, while leaving your other belongings back in your room at camp.
After sunrise your guide will collect you for a morning game drive en-route to the lodge. Freshen up before a hearty breakfast and transfer to Skukuza Airport.(B)
