Road trip to Sanbona Wildlife Reserve? Yes, please! It's not only the destination that is the fun part but getting there should be fun too.
Road Trip Time
I love road trips! When we (Christina and I) were invited to Sanbona Wildlife Reserve for 2 days I obviously made a road trip about it. It’s not only the destination that is the fun part but getting there should be fun too.
Sanbona is one of South Africa’s largest privately-owned nature reserves, stretching across 58 000 hectares of rich protected ecosystems within two biodiversity hotspots. This vast track of land in the Little Karoo outside Montagu, a mere 3.5 hours drive from Cape Town.
We decided to take the trip via Franschhoek with an early morning stop for a coffee and panne chocolate to go. No rush. We took a slow winding trip over the Franschhoek pass with our favourite tunes on the radio and the beautiful views over the Franschhoek Valley. Of course, we had to stop for a photo.
This route took us through Villiersdorp past the Theewaterskloof Dam, past the Winelands of Robertson and through the cutest town of Montagu.
