Lion Sands | South Africa

Lions Sands has to be one of the most magical retreats we have discovered. The game reserve is nestled on the banks of the Sabie River on the Sabi Sand Reserve in South Africa, you can choose to stay at one of their luxury lodges, or for more adventurous guests, sleep under the stars in one of their stunning one-of-a-kind treehouses. They were built for guests to experience the night, in tune with nature, they have no electricity, its just you and the great African outdoors. Staying at one of the treehouses is a truly unique experience, when the sun goes down, the tree houses are lit to provide the perfect romantic setting, and the African night sounds come alive in an awe-inspiring, multi-phonic symphony. Check out more stunning photos below.
