Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is home to the only free-range white lions in South Africa. The historic predator release means that for the first time in over 200 years, lion and cheetah can once again be seen in the Klein Karoo, making Sanbona the first private game reserve in the Western Cape to play host to free-roaming big cats. At the foot of the Warmwaterberg, in the heart of the Little Karoo, between Montagu and Barrydale on the famous Route 62, 54 000 hectares of undulating mountains and plains, indigenous fauna and flora, rock formations and rock art make this a destination not to be missed.
Specialist guiding is a key element in providing a memorable and varied experience. Jock Safari Lodge is the first private lodge set in the heart of Africa’s premier wildlife reserve – Jock of the Bushveld Concession Area in the Kruger National Park. Situated in the southern area of the Kruger National Park at the confluence of the Mitomeni and Biyamiti rivers, Jock Safari Lodge offers stunning views with the pool on the confluence. Jock Safari Lodge incorporates elements of the colonial past and indigenous Zulu and Shangaan cultures. Jock Safari Lodge has exclusive traversing rights in an area that is regarded as one of the best in the Kruger National Park for its Big Five sightings.
Set in the incredibly picturesque scenery of the Barberton Mountainland, Nkomazi Game Reserve lies in the malaria-free parts of Mpumalanga closest to Barberton, the Kruger National Park, Pilgrims Rest and such wonders as the Blyde River Canyon and God’s Window. Nkomazi, which means ‘place of water’ is set in the area also known as the ‘holy grail of geology’ for its wealth of ancient fossils – some of the oldest in the world. Its position in the Barberton Mountainland lays claims to a plant biodiversity higher than that of the entire Kruger National Park and second only to the Cape’s fynbos and succulents.
Nkomazi has been restored to a wildlife haven. Here, where great natural beauty and the 3.7 billion years of history meet, the Nkomazi conservation project has celebrated the return of wild animals to a region where they can once again roam in great abundance. Jaci’s two exceptional, privately owned lodges will exceed all your safari expectations.

Between the early morning and evening game drives and walks, there is a cool swimming pool overlooking the river. Paddle your own canoe, lie in a hammock, sip an ice-cold drink, watch the birds, the butterflies and beasts, relax, unwind. The day, the place, the ambience are yours, in peace.
