Sibuya Forest Camp
is located the Boesmans River area of the Sunshine Coast East in the Eastern Cape in South Africa.

+ large private reserve
+ important conservation project
+ only accessible by boat
+ unique arrival experience
+ high quality intimate camp
+ eco camp
+ walking safari
+ canoeing
+ boat cruises
+ cheetah rehabilitation
+ very low visitor traffic

This very beautiful reserve may only extend to 20 square kilometres at the moment, but the enclosed nature of the river valley, plus the way in which it is accessed by boat from the ocean, creates a heightened sense of isolation.

The lodge itself is also very pleasant, with stylish public areas and several authentic tented rooms. There is no electricity, which again adds to the sense of wilderness.

Activities include vehicle safari and walking safari. The reserve contains a good range of wildlife, although they have not yet been able to obtain permission to release their lions and cheetahs from their fenced enclosures. It is also possible to canoe on the river.

- fenced reserve
- proximity to human habitation
- reclaimed farmland
- not 24hr electricity
- lions within a separate enclosure

Sibuya Forest Camp is certainly one of our favourite wildlife reserves in the Eastern Cape, a very pleasant experience indeed and a conservation and rehabilitation project worthy of support.

It should be noted that, unlike the nearby Sibuya River Camp, this place does not take day visitors or children.
