Cape 62 is a 200-mile scenic drive that starts in Cape Town and heads west to Little Karoo; it also serves as the entry to the 134,000-acre Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, in South Africa’s lush Breede River Valley. The reserve is home to three lodging experiences: The nine Dwyka-tented lodges are set in a dry river bend, near ancient San rock art; Gondwana Lodge is made up of 12 contemporary suites with floor-to-ceiling windows onto the Anysberg Mountains; and a more traditional Cape Georgian design scheme is on display in the six suites of the 1898 Tilney Manor. Authentic Karoo cuisine—such as smoked venison—are included in the rate, as are two game drives a day, for spotting the Big Five, plus springbot, ostrich, and riverine rabbit.

Room to Book:

The suites at Tilney Manor have private fireplaces, minibars, and wireless Internet access

Insider Tip:

Though rooms are plush, don’t head back right after dinner. Guests can enjoy a glass of wine and listen as the resort’s astronomical guides review the Southern Hemisphere’s stars and constellations.
