Sanbona Wildlife Reserve - Western Cape - South Africa

Sanbona Wildlife Reserve at the foot of the Warmwaterberg, in the heart of the Little Karoo, between Montagu and Barrydale on the famous Route 62, the vision of the San is becoming a reality. Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, 54 000 hectares of undulating mountains and plains, indigenous fauna and flora, rock formations and rock art make this a destination not to be missed. Specialist guiding is a key element in providing a memorable and varied experience. The name Sanbona is a combination of the "San" people who roamed this area for thousands of years and "bona" which represents their vision in order to position this portion of the Little Karoo. Be it a journey of rejuvenation and self-discovery or absorbing the various essences and activities, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve represents in true form the philosophy of the Mantis Collection - taking care of the small things in life.

You can unwind in one of the invigorating hot-springs, revel in luxury or relax in rustic tranquility.

We look forward to sharing the unexpected pleasures of the Breede River Valley and Route 62 with you.

ABOUT US

The name Sanbona, a combination of the "San" people, who occupied the area 100 years ago and "bona"representing their vision have been combined to position this 54 000 ha little Karoo property.

The sheer expanse and stark beauty of the Reserve gives one a sense of humbleness, the realization of the inconsequentialities of life, a temporary release of the daily stresses of everyday living and could be a deemed a profound spiritual experience. Sanbona Wildlife Reserve allows one to be at peace, allowing one to curl up with a book, seeking solitude and introspection.
