Journey to a place where you can follow the path of nature … Sibuya Game Reserve is a Malaria Free, Big Five reserve conveniently situated near Kenton on Sea along South Africa’s Sunshine Coast, just 130 kms from Port Elizabeth and 150 kms from East London. Uniquely, guests journey by boat from Sibuya’s reception in Kenton on Sea, up the stunningly beautiful Kariega River Estuary, to our tented camps situated at the water’s edge. This is an offering not matched by any other game reserve in South Africa.

The lush subtropical East Cape Valley Bushveld, Grasslands and Coastal Forests play host to one of the highest densities of wildlife on the continent ensuring one of the best game viewing experiences in Africa. Breathtaking scenery and the sight of Africa’s “Big Five” viewed against an Indian Ocean backdrop complete a truly memorable experience.

Boat trips to the river mouth, Kenton’s idyllic beaches and a host of other river and game reserve activities guarantee that any length of stay will be too short, and will leave you saying “Sibuya” - we will return. Bontebok and Oribi, two of the rarest antelope species in South Africa, and a host of other animals including Elephant, Rhino, Giraffe, Buffalo and Zebra are just a few of the 40 African mammals you are likely to see.

For the bird lover almost 400 bird species, including the exceptionally rare Narina Trogan, will deliver hours of pleasure. Otters and crabs frequent the river banks while seals and turtles make occassional forays upriver to the tented camps. Professional Guides will host you for the duration of your stay while the camp staff prepare Fine Fireside Fare under a starlit sky. Designed for the independent traveler or small group market, Sibuya offers a low impact nature experience for the ecotourist seeking personalised service, professional organisation and eco-informative activities.
