Spanning the magnificent Kariega Estuary on its course to meet the warm Indian Ocean, malaria-free Sibuya is South Africa’s only 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 are able to offer you personalised game drives, rewarding walks and exclusive boat trips. Swimming, canoeing and fishing are also on offer, or you might choose to simply relax in a hammock under the trees, book in hand. 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. The estuary holds its own bounty: crabs, turtles, the occasional small shark and fish flopping in and out of the water. Additional activities by arrangement include:massages; horse riding on the beach. 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. The unequalled splendour of the vistas, with the Indian Ocean as their enduring backdrop, will leave you saying “Sibuya” – we will return.

The country’s second largest province probably displays the greatest natural and cultural diversity. In many ways, this is the place where South Africa’s history – and therefore present-day political reality – was thrashed out. It was here, in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries that white settlers first came up against black Africans, with
