Situated at the foot of the towering Warmwaterberg Mountains in the heart of the Little Karoo, Sanbona celebrates the spirit of the San people who once roamed this distinctive area.
Sanbona is home to white lions and big game as well as the rare riverine rabbit. The White Lion Project at Sanbona that aims to return white lions to the wild has been heralded a success. This makes Sanbona home to the only free-roaming white lions in the world.
