ABOUT THE LODGE & THE RESERVE

Seated at the foot of the Warmwaterberg Mountain Range in the heart of South Africa’s Little Karoo of the Western Cape, Sanbona pays tribute to the San people who made this arid environment their home for centuries.  Sanbona has an alluring atmosphere of stillness, an air of isolation amid the raw beauty and boundless plains. Sanbona and the spirit of the San people welcomes you.

Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, 54 000 hectares of undulating mountains and plains, indigenous fauna and flora, rock formations and rock art make this a destination not to be missed.

Specialist guiding is a key element in providing a memorable and varied experience. The name Sanbona is a combination of the "San" people who roamed this area for thousands of years and "bona" which represents their vision in order to position this portion of the Little Karoo.

Be it a journey of rejuvenation and self-discovery or absorbing the various essences and activities, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve takes care of the small things in life.
