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.
