We spent a weekend at Sanbonani Resort with friends after a few days in the Kruger National Park. From entering the resort we were amazed with the efficient service of the security staff, the lush green lawns and well kept gardens. The resort has all amenities that one can ask for with a pristine swimming pool. The staff at reception... More

I have visited Sanbonani for 2 consecutive years now and do not have a complaint. Firstly it is literally 10 minutes from Phabeni Gate. How fantastic. The chalets are well equipped and have all your needs and air-conditioned. They have clean linen and towels are changed daily. There is wonderful bird life including owls and Bush babies. Hippos do roam... More

Start with WIFI it needs attention from management (Sanibonani cn't say they offer WIFI access, yet it covers only at the reception only not even at the bar or dining) it's not a complain but a tip-off. The place is nice and I enjoyed my three night stay and the place is next to Kruger National Park at Hazyview. The... More

First the positive: Comfortable beds and linens, beautiful landscaping and exterior care. Furniture was in good shape. Close to Kruger and safe secure property. Now the rest: I am not sure when Sanbonani received their designation as a Gold Crown Resort from RCI but someone needs to do a follow up and reevaluate this. The interior of our unit was... More

Timeshare cottages are wonderful. We stayed in a 3 bedroom cottage which was furnished beautifully. Rooms were comfortable, kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean. The resort is lovely. Great swimming pool area and restaurant. The resort even has Hippo's entering the grounds from the river at night, which is great to see.
