3 day Sanbona Safari



This is our flagship Cape Town safari package, offering an authentic Big 5 safari experience in a well established wildlife reserve. Animals that once roamed the area freely living amongst the San Bushmen for millenia but were eradicated over time, have now been reintroduced into this magnificent wildlife reserve. The Big 5 – Lion, Leopard (rarely spotted in the Western Cape), Buffalo, Elephant and Rhinoceros as well as various other species such as Gemsbok, Springbok, Hartebeest, Eland, Kudu, Black Wildebeest and Zebra will be seen on Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. Natural small game such as Jackal, Caracal, Aardwolf, Ant bear, Brown Hyena, Grey Rhebuck, Steenbuck, Klipspringer, Grysbok and Common Duiker continue to thrive.
