Sanbona Dwyka Lodge


Amazing safari destination in the Garden Route

Sanbona Dwyka Tented Lodge is surrounded by awe-inspiring rock formations in a horseshoe bend of a dry Karoo ravine in the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. The luxurious and secluded tents exude an atmosphere of pioneering adventure. Only 3 hours from Cape Town, Sanbona boasts 54 000 hectares of undulating mountains and plains, indigenous flora and fauna, rock formations and rock art.

The Lodge offers a total of 9 tents. 7 King Bedded and 2 Twin bedded. The luxury tents all have indoor and outdoor showers, try the outside shower, ti really gets one in touch with nature. There is also the private plunge pools, private decks which look out onto the dry riverbed. To keep the night-time cold at bay there is underfloor heating as well as a combination cold/hot air-conditioner.

Sanbona has initiated a unique conservation programme that aims to breed the White Lion for release into the wild. Their dream is to reintroduce this rare animal into areas where it has been wiped out - for example, in the Timbivati region, where records indicate that the White Lion was spotted in the wild as far back as 1925.

The White Lion has always been rare, but its unusual beauty has captured the imaginations of people across the globe. Its whiteness is not due to albinism, but due to a recessive gene - similar to that found in the rare white tigers of Asia. However, it is not a separate species of lion from the typical tawny lion. The cubs are born almost pure white, but darken to a rich cream colour over the course of their first two years.
