Sibuya River Camp is a small, luxurious camp situated on the scenic Kariega riverbank in the Eastern Cape’s Sibuya Game Reserve. The tents in the small and luxurious camp are set out in a forest and are accessed by boat across the river.

At Sibuya River Camp you can observe 4 of the Big 5, either up close on a walking safari, from a canoe on the Kariega River, or from the comfort of a vehicle on an early morning, late afternoon or after-dinner game drive. With close to 400 indigenous and migrant bird species in the area, Sibuya is a bird-lover's haven. Between activities, take a leisurely walk on the Kenton beach or swim in the warm waters of the Kariega river.
