Gondwana Lodge, Western Cape, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve


At the foot of the 350 million year old Warmwaterberg Mountains, in the heart of the Little Karoo, lies the Cape’s premier wildlife destination, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. This arid, stark landscape, home to the San for centuries, has an alluring tranquillity and raw beauty.
Just three hours’ drive from Cape Town along the scenic Route 62, Sanbona sprawls across 54 000 hectares of rugged mountains and vast plains. Sanbona is home to an impressive variety of succulents, birds and wildlife, including the only free-roaming white lions in the world.
Guests at Gondwana Lodge experience the majesty of the panoramic vistas over the Bellair Dam and the spirit of the San in a wilderness sanctuary surrounded by ancient volcanic mountains. Outstanding service and private, luxurious 5 star accommodation create a soothing ambience where guests find instant release from the stresses of daily life.

Gondwana Lodge is the only Sanbona lodge that accommodates children. The lodge offers twelve luxurious suites, two of which have a sleeper couch to accommodate a child sharing with two adults. The six ground floor suites have private decks, whilst the six upstairs suites offer private balconies. Inter-leading rooms are available.


Sanbona offers the Big Five, and has the only free-roaming self-sustaining white lions in the world. The reserve is home to a variety of large and small antelope, zebra and wildebeest, giraffe, hippo, cheetah, and small game such as black-backed jackal and caracal. Evening game drives provide the opportunity to see nocturnal creatures, such as the aardwolf, brown hyena and porcupine.
Sanbona is home to the critically endangered and highly elusive Riverine Rabbit, which is the thirteenth most endangered mammal in the world and the second most critically endangered species in South Africa. Several endemic tortoises are found in the reserve, as is the Dwarf Blue butterfly, the second smallest butterfly in the world.
Over 200 bird species have been identified in the reserve, which has important raptor nesting sites, including that of the Verreaux’s Eagle. African Fish Eagles, breeding pairs of majestic Black Eagles and Black Harrier are regularly sighted. Other interesting bird species include the world’s largest bird, the ostrich, the Cinnamon-breasted Warbler seen only at dawn, the Booted Eagle, the Namaqua Sandgrouse and the Southern Grey Tit, with its thirteen different calls. The Bellair Lake provides a wetland habitat for a myriad of water birds, including kingfishers, Black-necked Grebe, Black-winged Stilts, and Maccoa Duck.
