Overview & Programme

One of the true joys of Sanbona is the freedom to do nothing at all in absolute luxury.  But for those who choose to venture beyond the comfort of the Lodge, a world of new experiences awaits...  Game Drives, Nature Walks, Birdwatching, Star Gazing, Rock Art, Rock Formations & Features, Fauna & Flora and Spa Treatments are just some of the options.
