Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa

Gold price level

Mango Opinion

This is a fabulous option for a large family or group. The private house is beautifully decorated, and comes equipped with your own chef, guide and vehicle. This area of the Sabi Sands is incredibly wild - so your safari will exceed expectations!

As a tribute to their predecessors pioneering spirit, Nicholas and Robert More, the great grandsons of Guy Chalkley and present-day owners of Lion Sands Private Game Reserve, have undertaken to build their own private camp.

Nestling on the banks of the Sabie River, 1933 represents a secluded environment where comfort and relaxation are the order of the day. There are four spacious suites, each with their own private view of the Sabie River. The bathrooms are just as inviting, courtesy of their double vanity units, elegant bath and outdoor showers. There is also a childrens dormitory, able to sleep up to eight children, with his and hers bathroom and an interleading bedroom for an au-pair.

1933 at Lion Sands strives to be: a gracious home away from home - with a few added luxuries, including your own private chef and ranger, with the exclusive use of a 4x4 Landrover for safari game drives.

What really sets 1933 at Lion Sands apart from any other safari lodge, is its prime setting on the canopied banks of the Sabie River - the very place where Guy Chalkley spent hours writing his storybook, Desert Pool, telling of the myriad adventures his two children, Tony and Louise, enjoyed while growing up on the Reserve.
