Sibuya Game Reserve & Lodge, Kenton-on-Sea

Spanning the magnificent Kariega Estuary on its course to meet the warm Indian Ocean, malaria-free Sibuya is South Africa’s only ‘Big 5’ game reserve accessed solely by boat.

After arriving at Sibuya’s reception near the river mouth in Kenton-on-Sea, guests embark on a meandering 45-minute boat cruise to the breathtakingly beautiful Reserve.
Leaving behind the wide, golden beaches of the Sunshine Coast, kingfishers, fish eagles, otters, antelope, and other wildlife may be spotted. With just four or eight luxury tents in each Camp and 4 elegant suites in the lodge, our professional guides can offer you personalised game drives, rewarding walks and exclusive boat trips. Swimming, canoeing, and fishing are on offer and exciting add-on excursions at an additional cost.

The ancient floodplains and pristine coastal forest play host to an abundance of wildlife: nearly 400 species of birds and 45 species of game including the “Big Five”. The sub-tropical vegetation ensures a high density of wildlife and one of the best game-viewing experiences in the country.

Under starlit skies, the distant roar of the ocean and the soft glow of lanterns are the only distractions as guests are served fine fireside fare in the warm embrace of the evening fire.

Use the Check Availability link to guarantee all drinks are included and a bottle of sparkling wine in your tent or suite on arrival.
