The staff, facilities and the game drives were all superb. Fabulous location at River Camp- loved the hammocks. The Ranger took great care to make the safari drives interesting and informative. He was very knowledgable and managed to find all of the animals we wanted to see - at close quarters. We loved the place and the people - it was a great 3 days.
Beautiful setting Very friendly and helpful stuff, made us feel truly welcomed Very clean Rangers very friendly an knowledgable managed to give us the perfect mix of information and enjoyment, we felt very safe and comfortable during safaris. Great stay in Sibuya would highly recommend to anyone
I liked that it was a complete package you paid and no extras
Our experience was wonderful in every sense; A real home from home ambience in River lodge. The staff, from top to bottom, are the best. The game drives are exciting, informative - you never know what or who will put in an appearance. A must go if you can -------
A back to nature environment in a comfortable living area with good food. We had Werner as an excetionally knowledgable guide throughout our stay.
Everything was first class. Drapes in the bathroom are would have been an advantage for privacy if that was needed
Everything! Loved the game drives with Werner the Ranger who was very knowledeable. Food excellent.
No walking tours available ðespiste advertisement, service in restaurant was poor, rangers not up to scratch, poor value for money charged generally
The simplicity of Sibuya makes it a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. The ranger was determined that we would see all the animals and had great knowledge and humour! The food was plentifull and good and there was always plenty to drink.( included in the price!) i really loved this place and the boat trip up the lovely river to Forest camp made the arrival seem very special. Highly recommend this place for its simplicity and relaxed atmosphere!
The rain!! But the ponchos help to keep dry!
Overall the Sibuya experience was incredible. The majority of the staff were fantastic - in particular our guide Werner simply could not do enough to make our stay as good as it could possibly be. His knowledge of local animal life was outstanding, he was a true pro and a nice chap also. Werner certainly went way beyond the call of duty when it came to making sure we had a brilliant time. The camp staff produced outstanding meals in a wonderful setting. The vehicles and boats were all in great condition and appeared to be well maintained. Sibuya itself offers varied and interesting terrain, a wide variety of bird life and some really close encounters with grazing animals, giraffe, rhino and elephant. Getting to Sibuya by boat is a stunning way of arriving, we stayed at river camp in lovely secluded surroundings. Our "tent" was amazing and hardly felt like a tent at all. Complete with bath, shower, massive comfy bed it really was as good as many 5 star hotels. Each day we conducted 2 quite long game drives in different parts of the park which maintained interest. This does give a decent length of time in between drives to eat and chill out or swim/fish read etc. We were fortunate enough to go on a night drive which was very entertaining as we managed to see many things that you just do no see during the day - owls and jackals in particular. The views from the high ground were particularly stunning. This is a good place to be if you like photography.
I wouldn't say I didn't like any aspect as I really would not want to deter anyone from visiting Sibuya. However, it is worth noting that predators such as lion and cheetah are in separate areas (breeding programme) and we saw no evidence of leopard. There are also no hippo or crocodiles. We did get up close and personal with the lions and a cheetah, but not quite the same as seeing them in the wild. This was really the only negative thing we could possibly find about Sibuya and really not a massive issue when you regard all the positive attributes.
Fantastic safari experience with people that seem to genuinely care about responsible game management and preservation. Wonderful facilities and food. Couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended.
it was great from start to finish. the boat ride on the river, arriving at the lodge, the meals, the game drives, the special attention to our anniversary.
