Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is blessed with many defining characteristics. You can still see rare examples of San rock art, left behind by the area’s original inhabitants.
Plus, guests can experience the reserve from a different angle, through unique boat safaris. Its home along the Route 62, the world’s longest wine route, means getting there is a journey too!
