Safari in luxury at Sanbona Wildlife Reserve

By  |  0 Comments

A wildlife escape that spares no expense for honeymooning in style, the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is perfect for those who love the best of both worlds.


Sanbona Wildlife Reserve lies in the untamed Little Karoo at the bottom of the Warmwaterberg, a mere three-hour drive from Cape Town. With 58 000 hectares of land to explore, you’ll find a range of terrain from the Cape Fold mountains, open Karoo plains, dams, vegetation and even some San rock art. The expansive landscape allows for many activities, exploring and room to escape into the luxury of the Sabona lodges. Those seeking adventure with the added pleasure of splendour will find themselves enthralled by the beauty of Sanbona.


There are three luxury lodges you can stay in; each one functions independently, so you know you’ll be given only the best service and attention to detail. The Tilney Manor offers a quiet and secluded space, with mountainous surrounds and indigenous vegetation. The Gondwana family lodge near the Bellair dam caters for all family sizes and is modelled after beautiful traditional thatched Karoo homes. The Dwyka tented lodges are arranged in a horseshoe formation but remain exclusive and private with their own jacuzzis. For those seeking something more immersive, the Sanbona explorer camp offers an authentic experience in the outdoors with mobile luxury tents, walks and campfire dinners.


Enjoy a variety of meals prepared at your lodge by hands-on chefs and staff. You’ll have the opportunity to dine in the wilderness, with a special campfire treat, or seek comfort indoors while taking in the gorgeous sunsets and enjoying a glass or two of the wines on offer.
