Welcome to Sanbona

Some of the native people of the Western Cape of South Africa, the San, were the inspiration for the name of the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. The reserve has more than one hundred thirty thousand acres located at the bottom of the Wamwaterberg. The Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is the only reserve in the area that allows lions to roam about freely.

The Western Cape of South Africa was roamed by the San people for thousands of years. During their stay on the land they created a variety of religious artwork that can now be visited by guests of the reserve. Some of the seven pieces of rock art on the reserve has been dated as being more than thirty-five hundred years old.

The Sabona Wildlife Reserve in the Western Cape of South Africa has been breeding a rare form of white lions. These lions have always been a rarity in the region but now, unfortunately, in many areas they are completely extinct. The owners hope that by breeding the lions they will one day be able to release them again into the wild.

The reserve offers a variety of lodges for guests to retreat to after their day of exploration has ended.
