Get up close and personal with the Big Five at Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. Only a three-hour drive from Cape Town, the reserve is well-known for its many hippos, white lions, cheetahs, antelopes and rhinos. The massive expanses of the reserve offer impressive and contrasting landscapes and many a rare plant. The towering mountains of the region give way to vast, open plains that have housed the San people for centuries – on the impressive rock formations you can still see the beautiful etchings made by this ethnic group. One of the largest private reserves in Africa, Sanbona is also rich in birdlife.
