Lo­cated on the coast at Kenton on Sea in the East­ern Cape and span­ning the mag­nif­i­cent Kar­iega Es­tu­ary on its course to meet the warm In­dian Ocean, the malaria-free Sibuya Game Re­serve is South Africa’s only game re­serve ac­cessed solely by boat.

Sibuya pro­vides a per­son­alised African bush ex­pe­ri­ence that is ac­knowl­edged as be­ing eco­log­i­cally, so­cially and fi­nan­cially sus­tain­able.

A few of the myr­iad ways that Subuya main­tains its low-im­pact, sus­tain­able tourism rep­u­ta­tion as a Big-5 safari at­trac­tion in­clude: re­cruit­ing and train­ing staff from the lo­cal com­mu­nity; pur­chas­ing goods and ser­vices lo­cally, on-site re­cy­cling and com­post­ing; restrict­ing en­ergy con­sump­tion to so­lar power, us­ing lowen­ergy light bulbs and slow-burn­ing lanterns; us­ing CFC-free re­frig­er­a­tion and gas grillers and hobs for cook­ing; pro­vid­ing guests with still-wa­ter de­canters and re-us­able wa­ter bot­tles (Sibuya re­cently in­stalled a de­sali­na­tion plant to pro­duce their own pre­pared wa­ter for de­canters and ice) – the list is ex­ten­sive and in­cludes on­go­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of pur­chased farm­land sur­round­ing the re­serve.
