Many shops and supermarkets close by. Activities range from helicopter flips ti swing rope to chimpanzee shelter to elephant santuary and more. A wonderful place to stay for rest and reconnection...

Amazing stay at Sanbonani Chalets. The unit was in fantastic condition, the resort was awesome and the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. The resort is less than 12 Kms from the Kruger National Park Phabeni Gate and less than 16 Kms from the Numbi Gate. All of the other major attractions in the area are a short drive away and...

Nice place close to Hazyview and Kruger park. I don't think you would go wrong here ! We had a good experience here and would stay again. It could use a few little tweeks but these would be minor things (ceiling fans, screens on windows and doors, and Febreez). Everyone was most helpful and made our 2 wk stay a...

Sanbonani is set in beautiful, lush & immaculate surroundings along the Sabie River. The chalet we stayed in needed a new stove and the bathrooms were smelly most of the time which means the plumbing needs serious attention. The chalets are attractively and comfortably serviced with good linen on the beds and well serviced. The DSTV package was pathetic and...
