Day Visits & Glamping

Well-Being Sanctuary


The Well-Being Sanctuary is not just a glamping site, but also offers an amazing day visit and camping experience at the lake. The lake is the perfect spot for a fun and adventurous day out, with its crystal-clear dark water and breathtaking scenery. The site is located on the beautiful Garden Route in South Africa, making it an ideal location for a day trip or a camping weekend with friends and family.

Recreational Day Activities 

Day visits to the lake at the Sanctuary offer an opportunity to enjoy a range of natural recreational activities. Swimming in the lake is a popular choice during the warmer months, offering a refreshing and invigorating experience. The lake is also available for paddle boards, kayaking and fishing, making it an ideal spot for water sports enthusiasts. For those who prefer a more relaxing activity, taking a nature walk or bird-watching is a great option, with stunning views of the mountains, forest, and lake.

Camping at the lake is also a popular option for those who want to stay overnight and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings. The site provides luxurious canvas tents that can accommodate up to four people. There are hot showers with chemical free water, making it a comfortable and convenient experience. Camping at the lake is an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and connect with the beautiful surroundings.

Fire Side Stories 

The fire pits offer opportunities for fire side stories and cooking with incredible sunsets over the lake or clear stary skies at night. There are beautiful mats to lie on, or wooden tables and benches for picnics. Bring your own picnic or order a delicious meal to be prepared for you. The bush kitchen offers opportunities to come back to natural fire side cooking or gas cooking. Fridges keep your drinks cold. The stunning organic garden is available for meditation, walks and harvests on request. 

If you want to reconnect as a family in nature, camp and celebrate life as friends, or indulge in a luxury romantic getaway from the daily programs and patterns that disconnects us from our selves and each other... then the Well-Being Sanctuary is a haven that is here to invite you in, closer to your self and each other. 

Glamping Accommodation at the Well-Being Sanctuary

After a day of bird watching, swimming, and a visit to the town and local market - come back to the Well-Being Sanctuary to unwind and sleep soundly. It is so quiet at the Sanctuary that you can hear the call of every bird in the surrounding territory and if you listen closely you can hear the waves break on the beach some nights. It is truly special to be woken up by the tweets, calls, hums and buzz of birds and bees in the tall grass and trees.

What our friends say

Wonderful serene place to get away from it all and connect with nature - and yourself. Glamping accommodation that is clean and comfortable and caters for every need. Off the beaten path but close enough to civilisation. Beautiful walking paths through indigenous forest, breathtaking views and insane sunsets. Ideal for nature lovers and bird watchers. Enjoying fireside chats, SUP’ing on the river/ lake, horse riding and reading. Highly recommended!
What a piece of paradise. Beautiful nature with amazing energy. Loved my stay here and looking very much forward to the next visit.
I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Well-Being Sanctuary and it exceeded all of my expectations. The glamping tents were luxurious and secluded, offering the perfect escape from the city. The views of the hills, forest, and lake were absolutely breathtaking, and the natural recreational activities available on the property were a highlight of my trip. I particularly enjoyed exploring the indigenous forest and spotting small buck tracks and other animals. The Sanctuary is also home to a wide variety of birds, including the beautiful Knysna Loeries. The lake provided the perfect spot for swimming and lounging on one of the four beaches. I also appreciated the option to bring my own kayak or stand-up paddle board to explore the lake at my leisure. The location of the sanctuary is also ideal, with easy access to the nearby towns of George and Knysna, as well as the Wild Oats Saturday Farmer's Market. The organic veggie garden and natural beekeeping walks were a nice bonus, and the clear shared hot showers were a welcome relief after a day of activities. Overall, I would highly recommend the Well-Being Sanctuary to anyone looking for a peaceful and rejuvenating getaway. The staff was friendly and the glamping was very comfortable and beautiful. I can't wait to return!
The Wellbeing Sanctuary is a must visit for relaxing tranquility and restorative soul nourishment. One is immediately struck by the beautiful nature scenes, the abundant birds and their peaceful sounds - the fish eagle during the day, and the delicate nightjar in the evenings, their sounds remind one where you are, and forces your mind to acknowledge the peaceful setting with a soft smile and grateful heart. All you have to do is surrender to the beautiful surroundings and choose to experience all that the Wellbeing Sanctuary has to offer. I have been fortunate enough to visit the Wellbeing Sanctuary for a couple of festivals and retreats. Each time I feel the gratitude from my inner being for the restorative and relaxing medicine the land and its activities has to offer. From the most beautiful conversations to joyful fire dancing and energetic drumming, or a peaceful walk among the many forest and garden pathways, or even a swim in the beautiful lake - you are sure to feel yourself restored and energised to continue on your life path. Do yourself a favour, and visit the Wellbeing Sanctuary!

A most magical destination, filled with loving and supportive facilitators. The combination of land, water, trees, energy and safe space of love and compassion. I cannot recommend this location enough, please do yourself a favour and visit the Well-Being Sanctuary.
Wow what a magical place! I’ve been here for a number of festival and even a wedding. It’s out of this world! The setting of the wedding ceremony overlooking the vast lake with the sun setting in the distance over the lake was magical and so romantic. It’s a fabulous setting for festivals too or even just for a break away week or weekend on your own or with family and friends. We loved swimming in the warm waters of the beautiful lake. The forest walks were enchanting! The facilities are great and the service of the team there is excellent, responsive and friendly. I really recommend this place, it’s a hidden gem
