The Cape Cadogan is a stately double-storeyed Georgian and Victorian building that dates back to the beginning of the 19th century. It was originally a farmhouse which was ‘Victorianised’ in 1912 and declared a national monument in 1984. This boutique hotel is well known for its comfortable, luxurious atmosphere. The reception areas are individually decorated and designed for comfort and tranquility. It is themed on the Irish literary figure Oscar Wilde who was renowned for his bohemian lifestyle throughout Europe and New York during the latter part of the 19th century. The public areas comprise a comfortable lounge with an open fireplace, a garden and pool area, and a library where you can relax and read or research your itinerary from the computer terminal provided for your convenience.

Road transfer to Lion Sands River Lodge (approximately 2 hours)
Lion Sands River Lodge, on the banks of the Sabie River, faces due east, catching the sun as it rises over the Kruger National Park. The 18 thatched air-conditioned bedrooms are linked to all areas by raised wooden walkways and all come with en-suite bathroom, outdoor & inside shower & wooden viewing deck, mini-bar & telephone. The interiors are tranquil purple and cream - cool in the summer, cosy in the winter. Public areas include a private lounge and bar, 2 swimming pools, wooden viewing decks, a secluded bird hide, private hammocks, conference room, health spa, curio shop & both an indoor and open-air (Boma) dining area. The swimming pool is arguably the best game viewing spot in the summer months. With an uninterrupted view of the river and the rising bush beyond it is not uncommon to spot an elephant or giraffe while doing backstroke. The Lion Sands culinary experience is as diverse and interesting as the African bush itself. Janine Hobbs, executive chef, and her team use imagination, passion and natural flair to produce the most delicious meals served on the banks of the Sabie River, under starlit skies, out on the wooden decks under the shade of the Mahogany trees or in the bush under African Acacias. Lion Sands is renowned for not only exceptional hospitality and game viewing, but also the great variety of ancillary activities it offers over and above the usual twice daily 4 x 4 game drives. Be it astronomy during the evening game drive, bush breakfasts on the open plains, bush dinners in dry riverbeds, bush walks or magical full moon walks, river tours to look for crocodiles and hippopotamus, safari lunches at a hide in winter and regular wildlife lectures covering a variety of subjects – “ never a dull moment” for sure.
