Enjoy ‘one of the world’s most beautiful reserves’ on safari holidays

The Sanbona reserve in Africa is one of the most beautiful in the world, according to one visitor.

In a piece for the Daily Mail, Wendy Gomersal, noted the 130,000-acre South African wildlife location has "vast plains, acacia thickets, rivers and mini-lakes where hippos honk" and is one-and-a-half times the size of the Isle of Wight.

She stated that those who love African safari holidays will enjoy this destination, which used to be made up of 19 farms.

The so-called Big Five should all be present – lions, buffalo, leopards, elephants and rhino – and mini-antelope stand on rock ledges, as well as the area possessing "wonderful birdlife".

Individuals looking to top up the have-seens on their animal wish list might also like to note that springbok, zebra, giraffe and kudu can all be found in the area.

Another location in the country that could be ideal for a safari is a new expedition camp which recently opened its doors in the Shambala Game Reserve, the New York Times reported.
