Nature Walks

Enjoy the beauty of the Karoo veld on a brisk Nature Walk amoungst the vygies. Follow any pathway or meander along the dry riverbed and you might even be lucky enough to come across some antelope or nesting owls!

Riverbed Braai / Picnic

You are welcome to make use of our braai areas in the veld or at the lodge to have a true South African evening with the oh-so-yummy smell of a Boerewors grilling over hot coals. Day visitors are also welcome to use these picnic and braai sites.

Cycling & Mountain Biking

Bring along your bike and take a ride on the reserve and get some exercise in the fresh air. There are sandy trails, rocky climbs and steady meanders. 


Sadawa has a abundance of bird species. Look for them near our dams and watering holes or along the riverbeds. Tankwa bBirding booklets are also for sale at R20 each.

Karoo-Rosie Curio Shop

Take some of the Karoo with you by purchasing one of our unique and home-made items only sold at Sadawa. From real pressed flower pendents to Paper Proteas.

At Sadawa we make use of renewable solar and wind electricity. Therefore we do not allow any elements; that includes, coffee machines, electric kettles, toasters, heaters etc. These objects can damage our system.

We are en Eco-farm and try to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible. Therefore we discourage the use of plastic shopping bags and we recycle glass, plastic and tin. Please respect this principle when visiting Sadawa.

The Karoo Biome is very special and even though we accommodate hiking trails and off-road vehicles, visitors must take care to protect the veld and its indigenous creatures. Be sure to remove all waste and packaging to ensure no rubbish in this beautiful biome.

The Sadawa lodge and chalets can be accessed via all vehicles, including cars. However, driving in the veld or accessing Die Brak requires a high vehicle (4 x 4 not needed).

Most of our veld-pathways can accommodate high vehicles (not cars). In some instances there may be more sandy bits of road. If you do get stuck in the sand dunes or mud, we will charge a fee for removing the vehicle. Please ensure that you inform management before driving in the veld to make sure you do not get lost.

Hunting is seasonal and game availability varies. Please contact our PH, André Vermeulen, for more information.
