Sanbona Explorer Camp




₤ 254 (Pps)


Walking & camping in the 54 000 hectare wilderness sanctuary of Sanbona Wildlife Reserve in the heart of the Little Karoo - this is the Sanbona Explorer Experience. This area was  previously home to the San People. Here you can experience the Legacy of the Bushman in the beauty of their Rock Art. Surrounded by ancient volcanic mountains & endless vistas, your guide will enhance the experience with birding, cultural history & other natural history of the area.

This unique wildlife walking experience is ideal for those looking for an adventurous and authentic option with the ambiance of a tented bush camp. The camp is located in a superbly shaded river line, north east of the reserve and approximately 30 minutes drive from Dwyka Tented Lodge. This is a flexible way to experience and explore the Sanbona Karoo as we believe that the rigidity of travel needs to be simplified by going back to basics.

This explorer camp reflects the original safari of being on foot and sleeping around the fire at night within the comfort of a mobile tent. The Explorer Camp operates during the summer months with the first trail in October and the last trail at the end of April.
