Fins, Flippers & Felines

There’s no shortage of things to do at Mosaic Private Sanctuary. From beach trips to Walker Bay to kayaking on the lagoon and quad bike rides exploring the surrounds, you can stay busy without leaving Mosaic’s 1,000 hectare sanctuary.  Bird-watching from the private decks at the 5-star Lagoon Lodge is sure to relax you – snuggling alongside the fireplace or enjoying a glass of the Overberg’s finest wines in the lapa bar. But with whale watching in season now, shark cage diving, and a wild cat sanctuary a short drive away, Mosaic’s central location affords convenient visits to three of the area’s greatest creature attractions?


In nearby Gansbaai you’ll see that what swims beneath the waves is big business. Shark Cage Diving is one of the most popular draw cards for visitors. If a close encounter with a Great White is on your bucket list, we are happy to secure your booking during a stay at Mosaic Private Sanctuary.


Each winter South Africa’s southern shores welcome back the magnificent Southern Right Whale, and with Mosaic perfectly positioned on the famed “Whale Coast”, you’ll be ideally placed to enjoy some magnificent whale watching from nearby Walker Bay. Guests to Mosaic are taken on 4×4 excursions to a secluded part of the gorgeous Walker Bay Beach and Nature Reserve. The sand dunes offer a natural vantage point from which to enjoy whale sightings, and the experience can be coupled with sundowners, a beach walk, or exploration of rock caves. Beach excursions are included in a stay at Lagoon Lodge and a favorite guest activity.


An excursion down to the beach via 4×4 allows guests to take in Mosaic’s landscapes.

Panthera Africa
, situated just outside Stanford, is an ethical sanctuary for big cats. With lions, tigers, leopard and caracals calling the haven home, visitors to the sanctuary can experience the magnificence of these big felines while supporting the strong educational ethos of Panthera:


“One of Panthera Africa’s main purposes is to be an educational platform where we create awareness about conditions big cats face in captivity, and how animal welfare and enrichment play a vital role in giving them the best captive life possible. We are a true sanctuary where no cub petting, breeding or trading takes place, and we take pride in speaking on their behalf!”

– Panthera Africa
