We said goodbye to Cape Town and jumped a couple of flights over to Sabi Sands, South Africa.
We entered Lion Sands 1933 Lodge and we were really taken aback by our accommodations. The 1933 Lodge is a proper house built along the Sabi River. The Lodge is rented out in it’s entirety to allow the group renting it full privacy and an experience that is completely different than at a game lodge with other paying guests.

The day we arrived at the lodge we were eager to go on a game drive. We took in the views from our room, splashed water on our faces, and rushed back to the common space to meet for tea … Keep Reading!!!
After about a five hour drive from Johannesburg, we made it to Madikwe Safari Lodge (very close to the border of Botswana).
This was the first stop for this trip and we were all eager to see animals…really any animals. From the moment that we entered the Madikwe Safari Lodge border we were welcomed by hundreds of animals.
