Luxury King Room

Sanbona Gondwana’s contemporary suites are very spacious and offer beautiful views over the Karoo plains and mountains from private patios. Equipped with an impressive list of luxury features including air-conditioning and under floor heating, these suites are ideal for a family of two adults and one child. A few of the rooms are interleading, which offers more space and comfort for bigger families or groups. Bathrooms are en suite and feature showers, free standing bathtubs and twin vanities.


The Relaxation Retreat at Gondwana Lodge offers two therapy rooms where you may indulge in a range of pampering treatments.

The lodge also features a gift boutique for unique souvenirs, and an exciting ‘Kids on Safari’ programme for children of all ages.

The programme offers outdoor trails, visits to sites where the San people left their legacy on the rock faces, and a range of other sporting and arts and crafts activities that are both fun and educational.

While the kids are being entertained, sip a glass of wine in the lounge or relax beside the swimming pool.


At Gondwana Lodge, meals are served in the dining area around an inviting fireplace or outside in the open-air boma. Complement your meal with a glass of wine from the fully-stocked wine cellar.
