Glamping weekend fun What a fun family weekend away with our boys at Sibani lodge’s tented camp, just 1 hour outside of Johannesburg, located in the Cradle of Humankind, making it an absolutely perfect choice for a weekend breakaway, whether it be with the family or just the two of you. Let me start off by saying the booking process was so seamless and they provide you with all the info you could need before you arrive, even the menu for the duration of your stay. The spacious glamping tents are super comfortable and even though the weather was quite chilly and rainy while we were there, we were cozy and warm at all times with plenty of blankets being provided if needed. Each tent is spotlessly clean and adequately set up with everything you could need, with plenty of room between each tent to ensure you have more than enough privacy too. A turn down service makes it even better! Nothing like still being spoilt to a neat and tidy room and treat on your pillow, these little touches go a long way. The newly installed wood fired hot tubs are a winner! We just loved relaxing in these whilst enjoying a drink and chatting about the plans for the day, which happened to be a game drive through the reserve to explore the large array of wildlife including giraffe,buffalo, red hartebeest, kudu, impala, zebra and an impressive variety of bird life, flora, and even exploring the caves. Due to all the rain we missed out on our afternoon picnic but the team made up for it by arranging a special picnic dinner for us in a private area with the fire place set up which was truly special and so much effort was made by them. There are so many activities to choose from nearby which offer a huge selection of really fun things to do, we elected to stop by Saddle Creek adventures on our way home, and wow this was an excellent decision. We tried our hand at archery, horse riding, go carting and quad biking and had the best time experiencing some new activities with the boys, to add to our already wonderful weekend away. All in all we had a wonderful stay at Sibani lodge with plenty of time to relax and rejuvenate. Jackals call at night and allow you to feel like you’re in the middle of all the action, whilst antelope and ostrich roam closely along the fence line, giving you the perfect opportunity to take it all in. If you listen carefully you can hear the lions calling from a nearby lion park too, making it extra special. If you’re not so keen on the glamping idea there is a main lodge area too, but I say try something new! You will love this camping experience with just a touch of luxury.

Best Staycation 2022 The farm is a wonderland as soon as you turn off from the road. You feel like you have stepped into the rolling savannah. Even I got to reception I was taking pictures. Its so beautiful and calming. The lodges/rooms are so tastefully curated to match the beautiful surroundings. There is absolutely no way you will regret booking a gateway with Sibani Lodge. Food is amazing and staff are so friendly and responsive. I will be rebooking to try their luxury tents soon.

Awesome to be so close to nature We absolutely loved our breakaway and to be so close to nature was unreal. We cannot wait to be back! A big thank you to Frans for all the valued information on our lovely game drive. The giraffe "Kurro" stole the show with his affection towards us. Also a shout of thanks go out to Jaco and Estefan for making our trip super special.

Nice experience The Luxury Tent was beautiful clean the staff is amazing, the game drive was awesome, the only thing I didn’t like it’s the food , you can’t give guest ,food that is cooked by someone who is not a chef , I didn’t like the food , if you wanna go camping here pls bring your own food and cooler box or pls get a chef or allow people to bring Braai stands but the place is amazing I would recommend it to my friends as well

Took my wife here for her birthday weekend and we really enjoyed the tented experience. From the time we arrived, it felt like we're home. It was a chilly weekend and the gas heater provided did wonder. In the morning we had the best view as we close to the dam and the animals came to drink water in the morning and in the evening we had the best view for the sunset as our tent was west facing. The game drive was also a great experience and the friendly giraffe that comes to the main boma is a great touch! The only downside was the dinner served. For R250, we could've been served a better meal than just rice, veggies and chicken.

Great stay, thank you specifically to ET, Mme Elsie and France. Your warmth and going the extra mile for us was greatlyappreciated. I had issue though, the picnic was a bit of a let down, the food wasn't great and getting left overs from the night before was a little off putting. Also please have more variety for food options for breakfast and supper.
