Lion Sands Narina Lodge




₤ 955 (Pps)


For the romantic at heart looking for an intimate and chic bush experience. look no further than Lion Sands Narina Lodge.

Narina Lodge lies in the heart of Kruger Park's prime game viewing territory, one of two sister lodges which lie adjacent to each other in a 5,000 hectare private concession. It is tucked away on magnificent stretch of river with over 35km of prime river frontage allowing you to view a vast array of wildlife and bird species.

Narina Lodge is part of the Lion Sands group. Lion Sands has land which straddles the Sabie River. In practical terms this means that you can enjoy game-viewing within Narina's private Kruger concession. And you can enjoy game-viewing in the Sabi Sands as well via a private connecting road and bridge over the river.

Accommodation at Lion Sands Narina Lodge

Narina Lodge offers unparalleled luxury and romance. It has nine massive suites with their own private plunge pools on the deck, making it a very personal experience. Like the bird it was named after (the narina trogon), the lodge is unobtrusive, yet undeniably beautiful, blending perfectly with the riverine forest vegetation. The main deck is on stilts overlooking the Sabie River, and the suites are connected by an elevated wooden walkway. Each is equipped with air-conditioning, mosquito net, full bathroom with outdoor shower, safe, minibar and telephone. There’s wifi available in selected public areas as a conscious decision to help guests escape from their everyday lives.

Narina Lodge is well situated to enjoy the direct flights into Skukuza Airport (only 15 mins drive away).

Tinyeleti Treehouse

Lion Sands Narina and Tinga Lodges 'share' the nearby Tinyeleti Treehouse, one of the hallmarks of Lion Sands lodges. Tinyeleti translates as ‘Many stars’ - an apt description for this luxurious Star Bed. Relax to the sound of the flowing waters of the Sabie River as well as sounds of the Bush with night predators and birds chiming in.

Lion Sands Narina & Tinga lodge reviews

Lion Sands Narina Lodge was THE find of the safari as I had always wondered about the game-viewing in this Kruger Park concession. I stayed at Narina and also visited Tinga Lodge.

I preferred Narina Lodge because its the lighter, more romantic décor, but both were really super in style and ambience, each with a stunning setting on the Sabie river.

As the game-viewing was pretty good in their own concession, my guide said that they very rarely needed to go out into the open roads of the Kruger. Thus their game vehicles were completely open to the sides. We enjoy a stunning encounter with a leopard conserving its prey in a tree. However they now have the flexibility to be able to go into the Sabi Sands (via a private ‘gate’) if there is a particularly good sighting. We did this just to see a pack of wild dogs which was just within the Sabi sands.
