Over several months, construction crews have been busy rebuilding and renovating this iconic tented lodge, which now offers a fresh new look and feel, yet retains what guests have come to love. Wherever possible, the original wood and stone have been reused in the renovations and solar assisted geysers reinstalled, in order to make this luxury nine tented lodge as environmentally green as is feasibly possible.
Interior designers have married earth-friendly fabrics and décor elements with fresh, neutral tones from the paint palette that complement the unique setting in which Dwyka is located – surrounded by awe-inspiring rock formations, which was once the home of ancient Khoisan hunters. Situated on a horseshoe bend of a dry Karoo ravine, the lodge has a Relaxation Retreat, communal lounge with fireplace and TV, wine cellar and an open air boma. These beautifully appointed tents exude an atmosphere of pioneering adventure in a vast and hidden landscape.
The cold water plunge pools have now been replaced by heated spa pools for an extra luxurious touch. A new menu and an enhanced wine cellar have also been given attention and showcasethe best wines and culinary favorites from the area.
Comments Shamwari Group General Manager, Joe Cloete, “Dwyka Tented Lodge is a special place to many and we are excited to reopen it to past and future guests as it really has become an iconic luxury tented offering over the years. With the new décor and design, it truly complements the refurbishments that have taken place at Tilney Manor and Gondwana Family Lodge. Adding to this latest news, the seasonal Sanbona Explorer will open in October for guests wishing to experience a truly exceptional walking safari.”
