Sanbona Wildlife Reserve

Roughly the size of Singapore, this enormous private wildlife reserve supports a free-roaming population of wild animals that were indigenous to the Western Cape before European settlers arrived. Here you’ll find the Big Five (lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo, and leopard) and many smaller desert creatures. One of the more unique experiences is to spend time on foot with the wild cheetahs that have grown accustomed to being approached by the rangers. But don’t expect to be able to touch them. Remote, tranquil, and beautiful, Sanbona has the added benefits of offering luxurious accommodation options and being malaria-free.
