Our dream, as you probably all know, is to combine Tinga Game Lodge (in the Kruger National Park) and Lion Sands Private Game Reserve (in the Sabi Sand Reserve) into one single safari experience. This would give our guests the ‘once in a lifetime’ experience to enjoy both the Kruger and Sabi Sand in one single game drive. The added benefit is access to 37 kilometers of Sabie and Sand river frontage.
Our dream is now a reality.
The first step that we have taken with immediate effect is the renaming of Tinga as Lion Sands. Lion Sands Game Reserve will therefore now have a stable of five Lodges; 1933 (4 suites), Ivory Lodge (6 suites), Narina Lodge (9 suites), Tinga Lodge (9 suites – Legends is being renamed as Tinga) and River Lodge (20 rooms). Lion Sands Game Reserve will be regionalized into Lion Sands Sabi Sand and Lion Sands Kruger National Park.
We have proceeded with the application for traversing between Lion Sands Kruger National Park and Lion Sands Sabi Sand. The timing for being granted permission for Lion Sands Kruger National Park traversing within the Sabi Sand will be advised in due course.
Over and above the introduction of the redefined brand of Lion Sands Game Reserve (with 5 lodges in the Sabi Sand and Kruger National Park), we are also really excited about the re-opening of Skukuza Airfield as a scheduled regional airport on the 1st November 2013. The future looks very bright indeed.
As always, we thank you for your continued and loyal support.
Nick and Robert More
