Sanbona Explorer Camp


Your R62 safari add-on

The winding road and enticing wine farms, boutique shops, nature trails, and towns hidden along Route 62—one of South Africa’s most popular self-drive routes—is enough to have travellers clambering into the nearest hired car they can get their hands on. What many don’t realise is that the perfect safari add-on to their holiday can be made with an adventure-drive walking safari with Sanbona Explorer Camp.

Found a short deviation from Route 62’s dedicated path, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is only a 3hr-drive from Cape Town. Set on the lush Breede River, the 54,000ha reserve has a landscape comprised of Karoo, thicket, and fynbos. Once driven out due to human intervention, the reserve now protects lion, rhino, cheetah, leopard, caracal, hyena, and antelope, to name but a few.

Guests in search of a more authentic safari experience and those with a flair for adventure will feel right at home with the walking experience at Sanbona Explorers Camp. Typically taken over two nights, guests will spend their days exploring the reserve on foot, and their nights sleeping in an unfenced camp with their qualified and armed guide.



  • Terrific add-on to an itinerary exploring R62 and only 3hr from Cape Town
  • A thrilling and authentic option to the conventional safari
  • Nothing but their tent separates guests from the wildlife in the reserve
  • Simple yet comfortable tents furnished with rudimentary beds, wash basins, cupboards, and hammocks
  • The critically endangered river rabbit is found in Sanbona
