Sibani lodge is an absolute gem nestled away in a stunning, quiet game reserve in the Cradle of Humankind. The accommodation is beautifully luxurious. We spent a wonderful family weekend enjoying ample game viewing (on game drives as well as from our very own deck), relaxing next to the pool and in the hot tub on the deck, unwinding by the fireplace, appreciating beautiful views of the reserve and enjoying meals in the stunning dining area of the main house.

The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. We had no complaints whatsoever except that we had never stayed there before now. We had a real sense of getting away from the hustle and bustle city and being able to relax in tranquil luxury on our holiday weekend.

I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful, luxurious and gorgeous getaway destination which is just on Joburg's footstep.

Room tip: The outside cottages are beautifully luxurious, quiet and have wonderful views.

Sibani Lodge is just outside of the city and about 15 min from Lanseria Airport. The lodge offers a beautiful setting with a view that is peaceful. The rooms, lounge and dining area is decorated so to welcome you home! A stunning pool to cool down. The staff are all extremely helpful and knowledgeable. End a day with a game drive, snacks and drinks. Amazing ...a must see

Sibani lodge is a little gem in a beautiful natural environment, which is relaxing and luxurious and very close to Jhb. The staff are friendly and helpful and we had a lovely stay.
Only "even better if" is that we asked for a game drive at 5:00pm, but the driver only arrived to pick us up just before 6pm. In the 1 hour waiting, we kept on being told the guy was nearly there to pick us up - and then we'd wait some more (with two very eager, but starting to tire young kids). It would have been so much better if the staff had been up front with us to say that the guy was help up elsewhere and we would only be able to go at 6pm - then we would have had another hour relaxing on our deck, rather than waiting at the front door for the driver that "is nearly here".
Also, I think the main lodge is really expensive - and concessions should be made if there are only four of you (two adults, two kids), rather than having to pay the full price.
Otherwise a lovely relaxing stay.

The feel of veld and bush and animals, peaceful and restful, yet with knowledgeable guides and impeccable service. What a special place! great for time out, business team bonding, family or couples getaway.

Close to Joburg but feels like you are alone and at peace in the African veld.
Highly recommended.
