If you’re looking for a special place to enjoy your honeymoon or propose, then where better than in the midst of 58, 000 hectares of unspoilt Karoo wilderness?

As a location, it doesn’t get much better than this and the photographic opportunities are endless. Just a short drive from Cape Town along Route 62, Sanbona awaits, with many romantic locations for photo opportunities, to choose along the way.

Right from when you make the booking, the Sanbona reservations and lodge teams pull together to make your time with us, absolutely perfect. After all, memories do last a lifetime and this is no exception.

Whilst with us, we arrange a very special turndown in your room with a bottle of chilled bubbles, flower petals and a special bed presentation laid out over the fine linen. Although that’s just for starters! A romantic candlelit dinner is created in your room, or on your private terrace, to enjoy the magnificent canopy of stars the Karoo is famous for.

If you choose Dwyka Tented Lodge, your private deck has its own spa pool with majestic views of the towering rock face before you. At Tilney Manor – expect views right over the bush and an uninterrupted canopy of stars to mark the occasion.

Should you be secretly organising to pop THE question, the staff can assist you to choose the perfect spot and even arrange for a private game drive as an added extra. Special moments can be created at a unique bush location overlooking the vastness of the Karoo, around the Bellair Dam or even in the rock art cave – now how many people can say they’ve done that? And the rangers are more than happy to help take a photo or short video.

At our Relaxation Retreats, the spa specialists can always arrange couple’s therapies for you both to enjoy the surrounding serenity. This can be taken in lieu of a game drive/walk or between the morning and afternoon drives.

Our team of Chefs are on hand to create a special meal, dish or even cake, which can be arranged prior to your arrival.

So consider celebrating your special moment with us, under the Sanbona stars.
