Sanbona Wildlife Reserve

Amazing Rock Formations dating back 350 million years and Flora from 3 major biomes were reintroduced to several animal species formerly indigenous to the area such as antelope and the Black Rhino to restore the ecological balance and to provide natural prey for existing wildlife such as the Brown Hyena , Leopard , Caracal and Jackals formerly obliterated by many years of Stock farming.

After some 300 years free roaming Cheetah and Lion were reintroduced to the Klein Karoo working with Cape Nature an agreement is being signed with Sanbona to ensure strict conservation ethics.

Sanbona Wildlife Reserve has examples of the unique Cape Fold Mountain rock formations formed some 350 million years ago.
This area covers 8 000ha. This is only the second private wilderness area in South Africa. It is situated in the mountainous western area of the reserve where no infrastructure exists. This area is managed with strict wilderness protocols.
