Nestled on the banks of the Sabie, one of South Africa’s most biologically diverse rivers, lies Lion’s Rock Rapids. A mere 15 minute drive from the world famous Kruger National Park, our abundant birdlife will welcome you in and you may even spot a lazing hippo or curious mongoose. We are located 4,5 hours drive from Johannesburg and the nearest town is Hazyview, Mpumalanga, which is a 10 minute drive away. What to expect: You will be warmly welcomed into either one of our newly refurbished luxury tents along the river bank or into one of our lodge suites - depending on your booking. Each air conditioned, luxury tent comfortably accommodates 2 guests. Please enquire about small children as we are able to accommodate them in some of our tents. Each lodge suite boast a private pool as well as spa bath for your enjoyment. Our friendly staff will serve all your lovingly prepared meals at our restaurant, overlooking the flowing river. You can enjoy the sunset here or by our riverside bar whilst enjoying the crackling campfire and making many happy memories. Our beach area is well loved by all our younger guests and those wanting to dig their toes into the sand and it adjoins our restaurant. Many happy hours of play, bird watching and relaxation can be enjoyed here. For those wanting to cool down, head to one of our sparkling pools for a relaxing swim. If you are seeking adventure, the surrounding area offers many exciting activities including Game Drives, river rafting, quad biking, beautiful Elephant interactions and many more. These can all be arranged for you as an added extra by our staff. There are also many renowned Mountain biking as well as hiking trails to enjoy and if you’ve booked a private massage in your tent, your muscles can be soothed away thereafter. Our team at Lion’s Rock Rapids all look forward to welcoming you.

Stunning accommodation with the most amazing view. The private pool offered the same view and we felt very privileged to stay here. The breakfast was amazing and I can’t sing its praises enough, 5* quality. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Definitely add this property to your holiday itinerary!

We loved our stay at lions rock so much that we extended with one more night. When arriving, view from the terraces and anywhere in the lodge is breathtaking. But most notably, the staff is really caring, going the extra step to make us feel comfortable. Thank you!

Very friendly and welcoming environment. Staff and management went the extra mile. A lovely setting in a special part of Africa. A great place to relax and to forget about this troubled world. I would definitely make a return visit if the opportunity arises.

Was a great experience. Very friendly staff. The food was amazing. There's fun activities to do on site, like fishing at no extra cost and you don't even need to bring your own equipment the lodge has rods provided. There's also volleyball,pool table. It's a nice place for families with small kids, it's safe. Prices of food and drinks at additional cost are not badly priced. Loved every moment.

We stayed 2 nights in a Lodge with private pool (though quite cold because of season). Breakfasts and dinners were excellent, served in great setting in tent like restaurant next to Sabi river (meaning approx 1 km walk or drive from Lodge). Friendly staff booked quad trip for us and advised on few more things to do and see. will definitely return when traveling to Hazyview.

Beautiful time spent at Lion Rock Rapids. Location was perfect, just outside Hazyview, about 4 hours from Johannesburg. Serenity, peace and the lapping of water over the rapids made for a calm space to unwind and relax. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble, including reigniting the log fire when it had burnt out and arranging a last minute afternoon game drive in the Kruger Park when our original plans fell through. We will definitely be back!

Tranquility on the banks of the Sabie river. Tented accommodation with the sound of water and birds. Main lodge on a sandy beach with rocks and river rapids, where you can even take a swim or catch fish. Personal service and good quality food.
