Escape to the Little Karoo and immerse yourself in a landscape where wildlife and flora leave you truly captivated. Just a three-hour drive from Cape Town, along the scenic Route 62, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is one of the Western Cape’s Premier Wildlife Destinations.

Sanbona, a malaria-free private game reserve boasting three luxury lodges and an adventurous Explorer Camp, nestles in 58,000 hectares of towering mountains and also wide-open plains. With a vast diversity of indigenous flora, an impressive collection of succulents, free roaming wildlife, San rock art, fossils as well as thrilling game drives, Sanbona promises something for everyone.

Our Kids on Safari programme allows for many hours of exploration, not to mention, fun – from treasure hunts, short night and day bush walks in a fenced area, insect catching and frogging and a visit to the Skull Garden, there’s all this and much more to experience on a Family Safari!

The Spirit of Sanbona lies not only in its commitment to rehabilitate the fragile ecosystems of the Little Karoo, but also ensures endangered wildlife and flora can be enjoyed for future generations. Being owned and operated on a not for profit basis means that your visit contributes to all current as well as future conservation efforts.
