Sani Valley boasts the best wildlife in the area. The entire valley is game-fenced and stocked with an abundance of wildlife. Sani Valley doesn't have the big five, but you will be able to walk among the zebra, eland, springbok and many other antelope. Other game, such as jackals and baboons, are able to pass through from the bordering Heritage site mountains. Often you will wake up to find a herd of Blesbuck in front of your lodge.

Into this well-watered mountain land of towering peaks and tumbling rivers, are set the twin villages of Underberg and Himeville.

The Bushmen hunter-gatherers, also called San people, lived on these mountain slopes from about 8000 years ago until the mid-1800's, and left behind them a priceless legacy of rock art in the caves and overhangs. These ancient paintings tell the story of their stone age culture, rituals and spiritual beliefs.
