Big 5 Sibuya has more navigable river than any other game reserve in South Africa. The unique experience starts immediately with a 45 minute boat transfer from the village of Kenton-on-Sea to River or Forest Camp - luxury en-suite tented accommodation nestled in riverine forest and constructed in an environmentally conscious manner. Luxurious Bush Lodge, situated just outside the main Reserve in a pristine indigenous forested valley, is accessed the same way and then guests are transferred by game drive vehicle to the Lodge. All buffet-stlye meals & beverages are included - as are canoeing, fishing, swimming, birding etc. Add-on activities at a nominal extra rate include massages, horse riding on the beach and golf. An abundance of wildlife from Elephants to Otters and prolific bird life await you. Guests are hosted and guided by a team of experienced knowledgeable professionals who ensure a memorable personalised stay which will leave you saying 'Sibuya!' - 'We will return!'

Great overnight stay with some fantastic encounters. Well worth a visit. The rustic, but luxurious feel made it a very different experience. The rangers and camp staff were great, a credit to Sibuya. We wish you all the best for the coming year.

Our few days at Sibyua were a fantastic break in the normal hectic demands on life, with no rush, quietness and lots of exciting sightings of various animals. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We were truly spoiled!

My fiance'and I received the day trip package as an engagement gift from his parents and the day was indescribable fr start to finish. From the incredible wealth of knowledge Kent has about just about everything we saw to the amazing rather close encounters with some breathtakingly beautiful white rhinos, the day was perfection in every way. We can't wait to be back!
