Firstly it is true what all others say, it is miles away from anything and you will be driving a lot, freezing a lot in the open 4WD, however the experience is amazing, the landscape, the food and the animals. It is this earthborn place in the wilderness combined with the luxury of a Five star resort. It is worth... More

My husband and I spent the first part of our honeymoon here and could not think of a better, more luxurious way to start married life. As it was winter we were the only guests although the weather was beautiful for us. The rooms are beautiful, large and fitted out with every comfort you could want. The fireplace and underfloor...

This lodge is maybe one of the best value for money establishments we have ever stayed at. White Lion Lodge offers a very personal experience that is not overly expensive. The all inclusive rate is well worth the money paid and if you are looking for a break away from the rush of the maddening world then this well worth... More

The Lodge is beautiful with fantastic rooms, very large, nicely decorated and with lots of well thought details. The location of the Lodge allows for absolute peace and quiet and great night skies. The food is very good and the service faultless. Israel is a very dedicated and interesting ranger doing also great botanical tours. The price is more than... More

After about a 14km drive on a gravel road, the second half of which is more appropriate for 4wd, but we took it very slowly and the car survived, you arrive at the lodge. The welcome was lovely and it turned out we were the only guests there for the first of our 3 nights. We were shown to our... More

When you enter the gates to San Bona game reserve you have a 15 minute drive over gravel tracks to the lodge and the last bit it quite bumpy. On arrival you are welcomed with refreshing towels. From this moment on it only gets better ( and better). There are four lodges, all exquisitely furnished, and the main house. The... More

We spent 2 nights at White Lion Lodge with our 4 children and were the only guests which was fabulous. There are 4 rooms and we had 3 of them, and what stunning rooms they are! Our children were gob-smacked when we arrived - not having been on a safari before they were absolutely blown away by the beauty of... More
