Sanbona Wildlife Reserve
Only 3 hours from Cape Town, Sanbona boasts 54 000 hectares of undulating mountains and plains, indigenous flora and fauna, rock formations and rock art. This is a destination not to be missed.

The sheer expanse and stark beauty of the Sanbona gives one a sense of humbleness, the realization of the inconsequentialities of life, a temporary release of the daily stresses of everyday living.

Sanbona allows one to be at peace, allowing one to curl up with a book, seeking solitude and introspection and what`s more...

At 54,000 hectares, Sanbona is one of the largest privately owned game reserves in South Africa.

Only 3.5 hours drive from Cape Town which makes Sanbona the closest free-roaming Big 5 reserve to Cape Town. The ONLY FREE self sustaining White Lions in the World. Vast open plains and rugged mountains. Situated on the famous Route 62. Variety of endemic bird and animal life.
Highly Competent Field Guides. Previously home to the SAN People where one can experience the Legacy of the Bushman in the Beauty of their Rock Art.

The only conserved habitat for the highly endangered Riverine Rabbit (13th most endangered mammal in the world). Malaria free.

Situated in the heart of the Little Karoo Wine Route, the longest in the world.

Sanbona Wildlife Reserve Guest Review

Average Guest Rating: 
  3.0 out of 5 based on 1 review.


Food and rooms were excellent. Game was sparse, the drives were too fast, mostly at 45-50kms per hour. Overall standards do not warrant 5-star in my opinion - try Phinda for 5-star comparisons.
