TOP REVIEW FOR THE GARMIN INREACH® MINI
US review magazine GearLab was so impressed with this tech that it was chosen for its Editor’s Pick for 2021. It was their reviewers’ most highly rated satellite messenger. “It does everything any other device can do, in a much, much smaller package — it's hard to imagine it getting any smaller. In our decades of using and testing satellite communications, this holds its own at the top of the pack,” it said.

STAY AT SANBONA’S LUXURY DWYKA LODGE
Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, deep in the expansive Klein Karoo, is known for its remarkable flora (you can do a walk focused on these distinct plants). Dwyka Lodge is made up of nine spacious tented suites, each private and set facing a remarkable red, jagged rock face.
From the private wooden deck (with plunge pool), you’ll be able to marvel at baboons scaling up and down the cliff with uncanny agility, or watch for eagles and other birdlife nesting in the nooks. It’s incredibly quiet and peaceful, and the night sky is worth staying up for – there’s so little light pollution that the stars are beautiful and bright.

SEE LIONS, CHEETAHS, ELEPHANTS UP CLOSE
Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is a two decade-long conservation project come to fruition. It has been a gradual process of rehabilitating land and reintroducing wildlife that was once found there. You’ll find lion – including the rare white variant – and bigger game such as cheetah, elephant, giraffe and rhino.

The Karoo land is expansive and the reserve’s carrying capacity is carefully followed. This means sightings are good, and also that it’s possible for guides to lead walks on foot, which is an exhilarating experience. You’ll feel like you’re in ancient territory, completely off the grid.
