Narina Lodge

18 guests · 9 bedrooms · 9 bathrooms
Indulge in Africa’s simple sophistication at this wilderness lodge. Built on stilts and encompassed by a canopy of 100-year-old trees, you’ll feel serenely connected to nature. Organic décor takes design cues from the environment. Soaring windows let you sneak a peek of wildlife at the river. Get up-close with the world’s 3rd largest land animals during the retreat’s exclusive hippo experience.
Over 137 mammals and 450 bird varieties are waiting to be discovered just outside of your private sanctuary. With the morning light, stretch away your slumber on your private deck, overlooking the Sabie River. Each day at sunrise and again in the late afternoon, game drives through Lion Sand’s reserve offer the chance to catch a glimpse of the Big 5. The area is especially renowned for its leopard viewing although they’re the most elusive of all predators. Spot big game at eye level during bush walks as you feel the crunch of savannah soil beneath your hiking boots. Why not fill the hours between tours with a pampering session at the lodge’s spa or open-air sala? 
Minimal light pollution ensures you get a bright, sparkling view of the starlit sky; guides share insights about planets and constellations you may have never noticed before. Treat yourself to the laid-back luxury of spending a night in a treehouse—the ultimate bush bedroom. The outdoor fire pit lounge at Narina Lodge is the perfect place to pop open a chilled bottle of champagne and relax after a fascinating day on the safari.
