A real bush experience
The Sibuya bush park in Kenton-on-Sea offers luxury tented lodge accommodation in the Eastern Cape and prides itself on superb cuisine. There are two tented camps which satisfy the different needs of guests.

Sibuya's reception is in the holiday village of Kenton-on-Sea in the Eastern Province, about 130 kms (80 miles) equidistant from Port Elizabeth and East London.
The unique bush beach experience starts immediately with a half-hour boat transfer to River or Forest Camp. Turtles, dolphins and whales might be seen near the river mouth. Both camps nestle in riverine forest and have been constructed in an environmentally conscious manner. Guests are hosted and guided by a team of experienced professionals.
