River Lodge - Lion Sands, Sabi Sand

Hello Journeyers!

Cedric and I went for a little breakaway for his birthday a while back, and seeing that I have not blogged in ages I decided to start with this one.
If you are looking for a beautiful relaxing location and the joys of spotting some leopards then this place is for you.

River Lodge, located in the Southern Sabi Sand Game Reserve with 20 Luxury Suites is the perfect holiday/honeymoon destination.
We decided to fly to Skukuza Airport because who wants to drive 12 hours return for a 3 day trip?
You drive into the Lodge greeted by friendly staff.

We arrived at the Lodge and settled into our room, overlooking the Sabie River, before heading off for some lunch. Note to self; Starve yourself for at least a week before going to any Lodge, your body will thank you!

Our ranger, Kenneth was extremely nice and really made sure we saw everything we had on our list. We literally went under and over trees to spot that beautiful male leopard. I mean, we had 3 exceptional sightings of leopards in 2 days! A win don't you agree?

The 2 days flew by and I did way too much curio shopping. *Sorry boo boo*

We were very sad to leave, but at least we still had 1 day at Tinga Lodge to look forward to.

Thank you to the incredible staff at River Lodge for making us feel so at home and for the extra 5kg's I gained in the 2 days!!!
