I have visited many game reserves and lodges in South Africa and Botswana and was quite honestly sceptical about a visiting a reserve only three hours from Cape Town. Sanbona exceeded all my expectations!! The games drives, the game we saw, the food and the accommodation were outstanding. Our guide Pascale was the best guide I have ever had. She was knowledgable, charming and the passion she has for the bush, animals and conservation was truly inspiring. I would recommend this location for anyone visiting Cape Town for a minimum of two nights so that you have time to see everything and enjoy the lovely surroundings. I travelled with my family including my two daughters and stayed in Gondwana.
