Lion Sands River Lodge or Narina Lodge

Jump to last reply

Help! I need to make a decision this weekend. My husband and I will be traveling to Africa in July 2017. Most of the trip has been worked out except for our stay in South Africa. We our tentatively staying at Lion Sands River Lodge for 3 nights but with a Sunday departure so we can't (commercially) fly directly to Victoria Falls (our next stop). FYI: They are booked up the day before our proposed stay and the day after so we can't just adjust the itinerary by one day. Our tour company has put us in Hazyview for one night before we continue on to Victoria Falls to solve the flight issue. This seemed like a waste of time and we could use the extra time in Victoria Falls so they have found us availability at Narina Lodge which would have us leaving on Saturday. (The cost here would only be slightly higher so from a cost perspective the lodges are comparable.)

So can someone please tell me:

* What would the difference in game viewing be between the two properties? (I know Narina is actually in Kruger but it is a private concession.)
* Does Narina have both a tracker and a driver?
* The game viewing is the most important element but is one better than the other in regards to service, etc.

Which Would Be Better?
1) Lion Sands River Lodge - 3 nights
Hazyview - 1 night
Our stay ends on Sunday so there is not a direct flights to Victoria Falls. We would have to stay in Hazyview before traveling on to Victoria Falls.

2) Narina Lodge -3 nights
If we stay here we would leave on Saturday and avoid the stop in Hazyview

Any advice would very much be appreciated. Thank you.
