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