About the company
Since re-opening in 2007, Lion Camp has earned a reputation for providing personalised service and quality guiding at an affordable price.
The warm and welcoming atmosphere at the lodge is a result of the ’human element’. The owner, long-term management and camp staff have worked together for 10+ years. Everyone involved with the camp feels immense pride in the place, and cares about great hospitality.
The existing site was identified in 1980, and a simple camp was constructed from grass & thatch in the heart of a rich game-viewing area. In 1997 the site was re-tendered and won by a syndicate of South African investors who designed and constructed a camp that was raised up on a wooden platform. After operating for a few years the lodge was sold to the current owner, who completed an extensive refurbishment, adding a swimming pool, central boma, upgraded kitchen and unique and colourful interior decor by Stephen Falcke.
