MORE ABOUT SANBONA WILDLIFE RESERVE
Under the stewardship of non-profit conservation organisation the Caleo Foundation, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve in the Little Karoo and sister property Jock Safari Lodge in the Kruger National Park have been pioneers of conservation, reserve development and eco-tourism. Sustainability and responsible utilisation are the cornerstones of all lodge operations.
Recognised as one of South Africa’s largest privately-owned reserves, Sanbona stretches across 58 000 hectares of the wide-open plains of the Klein Karoo, and is known as the Western-Cape’s premier wildlife destination. It is situated close to Montagu, a three-hour scenic drive from Cape Town along Route 62, and offers an authentic safari experience in a malaria-free area.
Sanbona is a sanctuary for indigenous flora and fauna, including the Big 5, but it is the vastness of the landscape and the alluring isolation amid the raw beauty and boundless plains which sets it apart.
Sanbona offers guests a choice of four different lodges and camps. Dwyka Tented Lodge accommodates 18 guests in nine luxury tents with private Jacuzzis to offer a unique wilderness experience for couples; while Tilney Manor is a refuge of peace and tranquility, catering for only 12 guests in six spacious open-plan suites leading on to private verandas. With 12 suites Gondwana Family Lodge offer the Kids on Safari programme and caters for families with children of all ages and small groups travelling together; while the Explorer Camp operates seasonally during the summer months to offer an authentic walking experience for up to six guests (16-years and older), exploring the Karoo while sleeping in luxury tents and enjoying evenings around a campfire.
