Malaria-free Sibuya is South Africa’s only game reserve accessed solely by boat. It is home to nearly 400 species of birds and 45 species of game, including the Big Five.
After arriving at reception near the river mouth in Kenton-on-Sea, guests embark on a meandering 45-minute boat cruise to River Camp. A favourite amongst friends, families, and sole-use groups, this small and intimate camp has four beautifully-appointed tented rooms, all en-suite. Discreetly tucked into a small forest on the river bank, each tented room has been designed with its own unique layout in order to avoid felling trees and to protect as much of the site as possible. A light and airy design lets nature’s sights and sounds flood into the generously proportioned guest areas, creating a sense of oneness with the wilderness all around. Ground level pathways and large foldout sofa beds make River Camp particularly well-suited to those with children.
Sibuya’s rangers take pride in organising bush walks, game drives, and boat or canoe trips. Guests will find them to be not only knowledgeable guides, but also gracious hosts.
Additional activities by arrangement include: massages and horse-riding on the beach.
