Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, Montagu

4.7
Immerse yourself in a first-class safari experience at Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, a private game reserve in the foothills of the Warmwaterberg mountain range. Guided 4x4 tours remain the best way to spot the "big 5" game animals--lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, and buffalos. If you want to explore on foot, take a walking tour, ideal for bird-watching. To extend your stay and see more of the reserve's wildlife, consider booking a spot at the onsite camp or check into one of the area's luxury lodges. A two-day stay is recommended for the best experience and optimal chances to see the wildlife. Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Montagu Edition.

  • This place is amazing! Staff were incredibly helpful and nice. The food and accommodation is five star plus! We saw the big 5 and a host of other beautiful animals roaming free. I cannot recommend this place enough. Go here! Put it on your bucket list or if you are an animal lover get here. 10/10. Loved it. We'll be back!
  • Morning drive may be early, but it's when it's cooler than more animals roam. Staff are all friendly and attentive and they do remember your preferences. They're also very knowledgeable. Money well spent.
