Perfect for the eco-tourist seeking an authentic safari experience, Sanbona Wildlife Resort is situated on 5,000 hectares of prime safari land in South Africa’s Western Cape.
As the primary goal of Sanbona is conservation, it is no surprise that being eco-friendly is a top priority for the hotel’s proprietors. The more recent buildings at Sanbona Wildlife Resort show signs of green construction and the facility uses a mix of rain and borehole water with an algal wastewater treatment system used for irrigation.
The Sanbona offers three distinct types of accommodations: The Dwyka Tented Lodge, the more stately colonial-style Tilney Manor, and Gondwana Lodge which resembles a boutique hotel. A variety of excursions are offered by this eco-friendly hotel including birdwatching and stargazing excursions and tours of cave art. The main draw, however, are the twice-daily game drives.
