In South Africa’s Limpopo Province there is a magical wildlife Sanctuary where the animals own the land and humans are merely the custodians. Here rescued wildlife can live their lives and raise their young in perfect safety.

Situated in the heart of this amazing Sanctuary is the SanWild Safari Lodge. Here you will find so much more than just a wildlife experience. Awareness tourism is a brand new concept for the discerning guests that would like to learn more about modern day conservation and the daily challenges threatening to push more and more endangered species over the edge as poaching continues to spread across the African continent like a wildfire. 

Successful wildlife rescues and rehabilitation was instrumental to repopulate this 6600 acre wildlife reserve and species found in the protected refuge include: Impala, Kudu, Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Waterbuck, Common and Mountain Reedbuck, Grey Duiker, Nyala, Giraffe, Burchell’s Zebras, Steenbok, Sharpe’s Grysbok, Klipspringer and all of the Big Five.

Some very elusive and rare creatures like Pangolin and Aardvark have also chosen of their own accord to make this protected reserve their home. Wild leopard and cheetahs roam freely on SanWild.

Many small predators like serval, caracal and civets can also be seen in the reserve and the Sanctuary’s large predator sanctuary is home to some lions rescued from South Africa’s sordid canned lion breeding and hunting industry that will live out their lives in large natural habitat enclosures in their respective prides. 

All proceeds raised at the lodge gets allocated towards the daily running of the Wildlife Sanctuary. 


The camp consists of 2 Large and 2 Standard Safari styled tents. Each Standard tent contains two ¾ beds (an extra bed can be added) and the Large tents all have Queen size beds (extra beds can be added)

All tents have an en-suite bathroom and electricity. Free W–Fi is available.

Each tent has a standing fan as well as tea/coffee facilities.

The Large tents each have their own bar fridge and a desk.

The main Lapa area consists of a lounge, dining area and bar area. A fireplace in the lounge area and a outdoor rock pool overlooking a watering hole compliments the entire Camp.. 

A minimum stay of two nights is required and additional day/night game drives are available as an optional extra at an additional cost.

Please note the camp is still a work -in – progress project. As funds and help comes available we can finish this project.
