We booked a Dwyka tented lodge for 3 nights, less and you will find it hard to see all there is to see. We arrived in time for lunch and the afternoon game drive; thereafter there were 2 drives per day and 1 drive prior to our departure. Each drive (up to 4 hours) revealed different sightings and we never returned disappointed. The luxury tented lodge was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and not overlooked. Sundowners during the evening drives - a very nice touch and the food was good. Our small game drive group of six all agreed that our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and experienced. Would definitely recommend.

Explore all this from your choice of 3 different luxury lodges. Whilst the free roaming Big 5 call Sanbona home, it’s the vastness of the landscape and the raw beauty of the boundless plains that make safaris at Sanbona unique.
