About Lion Camp
The lodge is built on the water’s edge amongst woodlands and some large Sausage and Mahogany trees. Raised walkways link the main lodge to the individual suites. The lodge is unfenced and allows wildlife to move freely through the area. The main lodge is a large, spacious and airy thatched space with private nooks, seating areas and a pool. A well-stocked bar, real-size snooker table, coffee station and a small, cosy wildlife reading area form part of this offering. The openness of the lodge affords uninterrupted views of the plains with the continual presence of wildlife.
The original rondavels were built in 1967, offering the first permanent accommodation to scouts and Norman Carr walking safaris. These have been restored and now make up our shop, a private reading room, a small gym facility and a photographic studio. The studio is loved by photographers as it offers a quiet spot with a large working space, international plug points and USB chargers. We also provide a hide at water level for close-up game viewing of animals while drinking, affording you excellent photographic opportunities.
The lodge offers 24-hour electricity. Power is supplied to the suites by an inverter system, charged by solar panels with a back-up generator. The water at Lion Camp comes from a borehole and is filtered through a state-of-the-art filtration and aeration plant.
