Found in the heart of South Africa's Little Karoo, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve offers a phenomenal escape into the wilderness of the Western Cape. Comprised of over 20 farms this area encompasses a diversity of landscapes, ranging from semi-desert, to rocky kopjes and mountain backdrops, with the reserve found at the foot of the Warmwaterberg Mountain Range. Once home to the San people, Sanbona holds a captivating sense of history one crystallised in its raw natural beauty.
With a Sanbona Wildlife Reserve safari you'll find only four lodges and camps, with Tilney Manor, Gondwana Lodge, Sanbona Explorer Camp and Dwyka Tented Lodge on offer. Gondwana is great for families while Tilney Manor is ideal for a secluded escape. The differing accommodation types found at Sanbona adds considerably to its appeal: placing the back to nature tented experience side by side with private personalised exclusivity. If you don't have time to visit the Kruger Sanbona is an ideal alternative, with the Western Cape's only populations of free-roaming cheetah and lion and a healthy herd of elephant.
