Sadawa Game Reserve



Sadawa Game Reserve is situated 215 km from Cape Town in the tranquil Tankwa Karoo. It offers visitors rustic, affordable Karoo accommodation with the promise of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The reserve was established in 1992 and is located 70km outside Ceres towards Sutherland on the R356. We offer a unique Tankwa Karoo-experience with vast landscapes, breathtaking sunsets and indigenous fauna and flora of this truly majestic South African Biome.


The Tankwa Karoo area is rich in history with various Bushmen settlement remains still visible and the “Vergete Groot Pad" that traveled through the middle of the farm many years ago. By day it is a vast landscape filled with indigenous flora and boundless blue skies. At night the skies become a stargazer’s dream with vast expanses of glittering stars you will never see in the city.

There are various indigenous plants growing on Sadawa, many of which have medicinal properties. Game that one can expect to see include Springbuck, Ostriches, Oryx, Eland and many more.

                                         Self-catering has never been this peaceful!

The Karoo-experience should be on your bucket list!

This was the perfect breakaway. We stayed at Die Brak which is 8km's from the main lodge. Nobody else in the area except for us, the stars and the serenity of the Karoo. The house is homey, no electricity which we preferred. Fireplace both inside and outside. Also pet friendly which is an extra bonus as we always travel with our dogs. I would definitely recommend to others if you need a break from the daily life in city. Mariechen provided excellent service from start of booking. We will be back!

"Wat 'n juweel van 'n plek. As jy wil weg breek van die stad se geraas is Sadawa beslis die plek om te besoek. Bekostigbaar, stylvol en die gasvryheid van die bestuur laat jou tuis voel vanaf die intrap slag. Sien jul beslis weer."

It was great getting far away from the city and take in the country air. The hosts made us feel more than welcome and catered to our needs. We enjoyed the game drive too. Will recommend a stay if you need to recharge your batteries.
