Earth Lodge

The sweat lodge is a traditional Native American practice that provides a profound spiritual experience. It allows us to shed the layers of what we are not, and return to our true essence. In the sweat lodge, we are met with heat, which helps to release toxins from the body, and the darkness provides a space for introspection and reflection. As we sit in the lodge, we connect with our innermost selves and with the natural world around us.

At our unique location, we have the added benefit of being able to immerse ourselves in the healing waters of the lake after the sweat lodge ceremony. The warm, salty waters are like returning to the womb, providing a powerful space for rebirth and renewal. This combination of sweat lodge and lake immersion is deep medicine for the mind, body, and soul. It is an opportunity to connect with the elements and to find a sense of inner peace and clarity.

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!
Well Being sanctuary is exactly what the name describes, A sanctuary of sacred serenity and abundant simplicity where Mother Nature gifts a beautiful balance of Earth, water, fire and air. My soul is nourished, revived and inspired after being there every time.
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!
Such a sacred and beautiful land - with vistas beyond the imagination! Thank you for sharing it - so we can all Glamp / Camp, walk in the indigenous forest and swim in the salt water lake…
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!
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
Such an incredible wholesome space and place to unwind, rewind and refuel. Mariette and her team have created an incredible natural sanctuary that simply lets you exhale all the stresses that come with living and inhale much needed rest and restore. It is transformative in the most gentle of ways. The Well-Being Sanctuary is just that - a sanctuary to restore our senses and return to wellbeing. My advice if you are reading this - go!!!
Amazing place to relax if you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track, peaceful , quiet and beautiful. Mariette is a most generous and responsive host - great communication and so informative about the land and all its magic. What really adds to your whole experience is that the it centres around sustainability with a fantastic glamping experience. The tents are spacious and the beds are super comfortable - had such a good sleep after all the day’s activities: Beautiful walk along the banks of the lagoon followed by the longest swim. Tip - try out all of the beaches - each has its own unique character!
Love this place. So very special! The serene beauty. I love the ethos and respect for the land. Thank you Mariette for being such a fantastic host.
