Sanbona Wildlife Reserve

Magnificent views, panoramic landscapes and towering cliffs, streams and the abundance of trees and indigenous flora, all contribute to making the Breede River Valley one of the Western Cape's most diverse regions. The ever-changing colours of our majestic mountains, scenic passes, rivers, vineyards and orchards as well as the multitude of attractions, will offer you an unforgettable adventure, whether this is in the physical sense or simply a kaleidoscope of scenic experiences.

Innovation and pride, combined with a terrain and mild climate that are harmoniously balanced, result in the prominence of our region's wines. The R62 Route which links the Breede River Valley and Klein Karoo, will take you along the longest wine route in the world. The easily accessible towns, nestled among the Valleys, all offer ample opportunity for discovery. From visits to wineries and game reserves, art and cultural tours, museums, hiking trails and mountain climbing, 4x4 routes and canoeing expeditions, even riding the worlds largest birds, fishing and caves. You can unwind in one of the invigorating hot-springs, revel in luxury or relax in rustic tranquility. Sanbona, often referred to as the 'Arizona of Southern Africa' and the spirit of the San people, invites you to explore a special wilderness sanctuary, offering five star accommodation at three luxurious lodges and a back to nature Explorer Camp adventure, surrounded by ancient volcanic mountains and endless vistas.

Tilney Manor consists of 3 separate units including 6 large open plan suites, each opening onto private verandas overlooking breathtaking views of undulating mountains and plains. This lush oasis setting of Tilney Manor is surrounded by carefully laid out indigenous gardens.

Gondwana Lodge, overlooking Bellair Dam and resembling a typical thatched Karoo homestead, offering 12 generously proportioned luxury suites, each with endless views over the plains, Anysberg-mountains and beyond.

Dwyka Tented Lodge is surrounded by awe-inspiring rock formations which was once the home of ancient Khoisan hunters. Beautifully appointed tents exude an atmosphere of pioneering adventure in a vast and hidden landscape, situated on a horseshoe bend of a dry Karoo ravine.

The Explorer Camp site is unfenced to provide the true explorer ambiance and tents are placed in fairly close proximity without encroaching on another tents privacy. Wild animals are able to cross through the camp at any time and although all safety precautions have been followed in setting up the camp.
