Later, Dan Olofsson proceeded to become region manager for Skandiaconsult's southern division and, after another year, business controller. After a conflict of interest amongst the owners, Olofsson chose to leave the company and, together with John Wattin and Ronny Forsberg he founded the consulting company Sapia in 1986.

The facilities were inaugurated in 2004 by the Zulu king Goodwill Zwelithini KaBhekazulu and between 2009–2016 it has, amongst many awards, been named “The World’s Leading Luxury Lodge” by the World Travel Awards.
