Spanning the magnificent Kariega Estuary on its course to meet the warm Indian Ocean, malaria-free Sibuya Game Reserve 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 40 minute boat cruise to the Reserve. Along the way, kingfishers, fish eagles, otters, antelope and other wildlife may be spotted.
On arrival at either of the camps, guests settle into their accommodation – luxury en-suite tents on raised wooden decks. With just four or eight luxury tents in each camp, Sibuya Game Reserve’s professional guides are able to offer personalised game drives and exclusive boat trips. Swimming, canoeing and fishing are also on offer, or guests might choose to simply relax in a hammock under the trees.
The ancient floodplains and pristine coastal forest host an abundance of wildlife: nearly 400 bird species and 45 species of game including the “Big Five”. The lush vegetation ensures a high density of wildlife and one of the best game-viewing experiences in the country.
Besides big-5 game drives and boat safaris, additional activities by arrangement include: deep sea and surf angling or fly-fishing; coastal sightseeing cruises; wellness programmes; and horse riding.
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 embrace of the evening fire.
The unequaled splendour of the vistas, with the Indian Ocean as their enduring backdrop, will leave you saying “Sibuya” – we will return.
