Lion Sands

Owned and managed by the MORE family and their passionate family of staff, this portfolio of hotels and lodges is well-loved with guests continuously sending wonderful feedback of their experiences. It all began at Lion Sands a generation ago when wildlife conservation along with the desire the share the drama and beauty of the wild Africa bush became the driving force behind what is now a respected luxury experiential tourism product in Southern Africa.

The MORE Hotels group comprises the celebrated Lion Sands Safari Lodges in the predator rich Sabi Sands. River Lodge is the oldest and largest camp and is ideal for groups and families. Ivory Lodge is fabulous for honeymooners and couples wanting privacy and luxury. 1933 is like a family home in the bush and the perfect exclusive use getaway. On the other side of the river, within the Kruger National Park are the Tinga and Narina Lodges.  Both have amazing tree houses which are very popular for romantic sleep outs. In a lovely location in Cape Town, Cape Cadogan is one of our all time favourite guesthouses and the More Quarters apartments are close by.  Madikwe Safari Lodge is great option in the malaria free and family friendly Madikwe Game Reserve. And their most recent addition is Marataba Safari lodge in the Marakele Game Reserve. Each location is unique and so is each hotel or lodge.
