Perfectly situated on the banks of the Kariega River Estuary but tucked unobtrusively into the indigenous bush, Forest Camp offers a blend of essential comforts and warm, charming style. Richly coloured local textiles, in shades of rust and burnt orange, are used throughout in support of the regions weaving community.
The lush, sub-tropical vegetation ensures a high density of wildlife and guarantees one of the best game-viewing experiences in the country.
Sibuya Game Reserve is a 2300 hectare, Malaria-Free, Big Five reserve conveniently situated near Kenton on Sea in the Eastern Cape along South Africa's Sunshine Coast, just 130 km from Port Elizabeth and 150 km from East London.
Uniquely, guests journey by boat from the Sibuya Game Reserve reception in Kenton on Sea, up the stunningly beautiful Kariega River Estuary, to the camps situated at the water's edge to experience an eastern cape safari. This is an offering not matched by any other game reserve in South Africa.
The lush subtropical Eastern 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" seen against an Indian Ocean backdrop complete a genuinely memorable experience here at Sibuya Game Reserve.
Sibuya Forest Camp, with its long wooden walkways meandering through the pristine thicket, has eight secluded tents with unique en-suite bathrooms and comfortable king-sized beds – complete with luxury linen and furnishings.
Four of the eight tents are equipped with a pull-out sleeper divan – available if necessary for a child sharing with parents. A cosy fireplace in each tent adds a personal touch and provides comfort on the chillier nights.
Delicious buffet-style dining with an African twist is an integral part of any visit to Sibuya. Served in the lapa, on picnics or under a canopy of stars in the wonderful open-air boma, meals are accompanied with excellent South African wine.
