About White Lion Lodge

White Lion Lodge

The White Lion Lodge is situated along the Klein Kalkoenshoek River on the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. The 54000 ha privately owned Reserve is situated along the Warmwaterberg Mountains, in the heart of the little Karoo, along the Route 62, the longest Wine Route - the Little Karoo Wine Route - in the world.

The Reserve is situated in the Klein Karoo, Southern Africa's "Hinterland" only 3 hours drive from Cape Town, which makes it the closest free roaming Big Five Reserve to Cape Town.

54000 ha of farmland in the Klein Karoo were restored and restocked with African Wildlife. Today, thousands of animals including white and tawny lion, rhino, buffalo, elephant, leopard and cheetah roam free in this diverse and fascinating Reserve.

Sanbona is home to the only free self-sustaining White Lions in the world, the Big Five and the endangered riverine rabbit.

The privately owned White Lion Lodge on Sanbona offers luxury accommodation, exceptional personal service and delicious cuisine.

The Lodge lies in the southern part of the Reserve and is set along a tranquil, remote river valley offering an ultimate Karoo experience.
