Sanbona: Dwyka Tented Lodge

  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

The Western Cape’s answer to a luxe safari experience, here wildlife roam free in over 58 000 hectares of wilderness below the purple folds of the Warmwaterberg mountains. You come here for Big Five-spotting, wide-open savannah, indigenous flora, birdlife and tranquillity, plus the luxury of five-star service and privacy. While the two daily nature drives are the main event, you can fill your days with wilderness walks, visits to ancient rock-art sites, spa treatments and guided stargazing excursions.

Among the three accommodation options, Dwyka is the adults-only lodge designed for romance. Nestled in the horseshoe bend of a ravine in the Klein Karoo, it is a small, intimate safari camp where couples can enjoy sheer luxury in the most beautifully weathered landscape. Soak in your heated plunge pool under the stars with a bottle of bubbly, dine on your private deck, and let the wilderness work its magic. Under the canopy of your sumptuous suite is everything you need.


Dwyka has nine, well-spaced tented suites.
