Sanbona Wildlife Reserve

About Sanbona

Considered the Western Cape’s Premier Wildlife Destination.

The malaria-free Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is around a three-hour scenic drive from Cape Town in the heart of the Little Karoo, along Route 62 – the world’s longest wine route. At the foot of the towering Warmwaterberg Mountains, Sanbona boasts 58, 000 hectares of sculpted Cape Fold Mountains, wide-open Karoo plains, indigenous flora and fauna and rare examples of San rock art, some dating back more than 3, 500 years, plus a unique boat safari. More than a Big 5 wilderness reserve, it’s the vastness of the landscape, the alluring stillness and isolation amid raw beauty and boundless plains that make Sanbona unique.

Please note that Sanbona is a private game reserve and booking in advance is essential.

Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is home to a variety of animals who call the Klein Karoo home. Some of these creatures are quite elusive and not always seen, although the cooler winter days, give guests coming on a wilderness safari the chance to see them.
