White Lion Lodge on Sanbona Wildlife Reserve

Ein Karoo Wilderness Retreat auf der Route 62, das ein einzigartiges Natur- und Tiererlebnis in der Nähe von Kapstadt bietet. Die in Privatbesitz befindliche White Lion Lodge befindet sich im südlichen Teil des Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. Es bietet luxuriöse Unterkünfte, außergewöhnlichen persönlichen Service und köstliche Küche, kombiniert mit Safari durch eine 30000 ha große Konzession des Reservats.

"Von Anfang an umgibt dich die Magie"

Das Sanbona Wildlife Reserve erstreckt sich über 58000 ha in der malariafreien Klein Karoo entlang der Route 62 zwischen Montagu und Barrydale, etwas mehr als 3 Stunden von Kapstadt entfernt. Wir betreiben ein naturnahes Tourismusunternehmen und möchten unseren Gästen die Biodiversitäts-Hotspots Fynbos und Succulent Karoo Biome zusammen mit einheimischen frei lebenden Tierarten vorstellen, wie sie die San vor Hunderten von Jahren gesehen haben.

Climate and Weather

The climate is semi-arid with rainfall mainly in the winter month. The Klein Karoo is traditionally hot and dry, with cooling south-westerly winds during the afternoons in summer, making it ideal conditions for a lovely sunset game drive. On average the nights cool down to 15C – 20C degrees in summer.

Very little rain occurs during summer, and if it does, it is usually in form of thunderstorms. Normally the area receives about 250mm-350mm of rain per year, mostly in the winter months.

The lowest rainfall (6mm) is in January and the highest (27mm) in August. The coolest months are July & August, when the mercury drops to -2 & -4 degrees Celsius on average during the night, but during the day the temperatures range between comfortable 15-20 degrees, ideal safari conditions.
