We rented chalet 45A for a week this August and were most impressed with the quality of service - at the gate, in reception and from the very efficient housekeeper who kept our unit in pristine conditIon. The deck overlooking trees and river was inviting as were the pleasant grassy walks along the river. The unit was comfortable and well... More

We spent 4 nights in the a 2 bedrooms chalet (were upgraded from a family hotel room). The chalet was located just above the river where hippos and crocodiles swim – we only saw the crocodile though... It was well equipped and maintained with all that you need – especially for a family vacation. The staff was very pleasant and... More

This resort is located just outside Hazyview on the road headed towards the main entrance to the Kruger Park, which is approximately 45 kilometres away. We stayed in a three bed / 3 bath chalet on the edge of the sand river, which is the perfect location. If you are lucky you will be able to witness hippo coming out... More

For a family vacation this resort is perfect. We stayed in the family hotel room and was pleasantly surprised with its size. It had a kitchen, lounge, bathroom and a bedroom with a king size bed. Both the lounge and bedroom had televisions with dual view. The lounge also had a extra bed. The morning we had breakfast by the... More

Stayed a few nights in the self catering Chalet that borders the river. Really comfortable offering bathroom on suite for all 3 bedrooms. Great BBQ and outside area. Wildlife around. Stayed one night in the hotel which can do with a refurb, using very old bedding and electronic equipment like TV is outdated. Restaurant is outsourced which is a problem,... More

Located on the banks of the Sabi and the Sand river the resort is a great family getaway. You must drive your own car in hazyview as there is no local transport. Great staff and great chalets. Restaurant was nice. Free Wifi in reception area. 20mins drive away from the Phabeni Gate of the Krueger National Park. Do your own... More

The reception staff are very friendly and welcoming. There is a bar in the premises so you can enjoy a drink while relaxing by the enormous sparkling blue pool. Thee rooms are nice and big... The linen is crispy clean and the beds are nice and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back in the future.

Our experience at sanbonani was absolutely ghastly. The staff were sour and unfriendly. The welcoming "committee" were exceptionally unfriendly. Our room stank of stale smoke. The cleaning lady in our room treated us like children and demanded that we shower before 10am on holiday. I will never return to sanbonani. What a crappy weekend we had

My friends and I stayed at Sanbonani Resort in April. We were given a chalet down by the river and couldn't be happier with the location. Not more than 150 feet from our back door are a family of hippos in the river that runs by the resort. They actually came up to graze on grass just a couple feet... More
