Sibuya Bush Lodge is set in a pristine wilderness paradise in Sibuya Game Reserve. Malaria-free Sibuya is South Africa’s only game reserve accessed solely by boat. After departing from Kenton and enjoying a unique boat cruise up the Kariega Estuary, guests embark on a short game drive to the lodge. This stylish bush destination, which mushrooms from an indigenous forested valley, is a classic thatched 4-star lodge, with all the luxury and modern amenities to match.
The stunning units are private, spacious, and fully en-suite, with outside and inside showers and private decks. Spacious viewing decks surround the main area, which overlooks the wooded valley below. A sparkling swimming pool is an ideal place to relax and refresh between game drives or other activities.
Professional guides take you on game drives, bush walks, boat trips, and beach and bush picnics. Swimming, canoeing, and fishing are also on offer. 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 lush vegetation ensures a high density of wildlife and one of the best game-viewing experiences in the country.
Additional activities by arrangement include massages and horse-riding on the beach.
