Had a fantastic weekend at the resort - units are a little tired and really could do with some maintenance - rising damp on the walls in quite a few areas of the units - broken tiles in the units and on the patios. Tin openers didn't work - vegetable peelers didn't work - and some other kitchen issues that... More

We have just spent the Easter long weekend at Sanbonani and what an incredible time we had. We stayed in the chalets facing onto the Sabie River with beautiful rolling green lawn down to the river. Every afternoon the Hippos (4 of them) would come out of the river and spend a few hours just grazing on the lush green... More

We had river frontage on the Sabie river we we were able to view a pod of Hippo wallowing in the river. They would the exit the water in the... More

My husband, my 2 children and I have been coming to Sanbonani for the last 16 years, since my children were little. We absolutely love it and so do they, it caters for the little children right through to the older people. Every year we have seen improvements, the standards have been kept upto date. The only thing that could... More

Teenager + 6 year old + putt putt + nature and lovely pool = family fun. Everything is neat and clean. Staff friendly and efficient. Exciting excursions easily available. A really nice family weekend away.

Staying at Sanbonani is not a pleasant and friendly affair. Services is slow to non existent and on your last day of stay you get summoned a eviction letter saying you have to be out at a time or you will be fined. Totally understand acceptable and a slap in the face.

The Sanbonani resort has a great location very near the Kruger Park. The Food is very good and also the service is functional and reliable. The bar serves very cheap beer and it is nice to sit outside in the evening ovelooking the pool. One highlight is that you can maybe watch the hypos on the nearby river, BUT on... More

This resort is well located and is 10km away from the Kruger Park, and there is easy access to get to the fantastic lowveld wonders (Lisbon falls, Mac mac falls, Blyde River Canyon, Pilgrims Rest etc). There are shops nearby for necessities. The unit that we stayed in was very clean apart from the odd bat (that was later removed)... More
