Sanctuary for your soul
Sanctuary for your soul

Serene and superb Sanbona
Serene and superb Sanbona

It's a still-and-sunny Saturday afternoon, golden light bathes the bush, the smell of Renosterveld fynbos and dust is in the air as we silently approach a wild cheetah family gorged on a recently felled eland. The family (mother and kids) are lethargic stuffed full of the kill and sensibly enjoying an afternoon rest up after their large family lunch.

Become a fan of Fancourt

Imagine soft green mounds, rolling hills, wispy clouds, the gentle caress of the sun on your cheek, the sound of chirping birds and the nee-yow of golf carts in the distance. Imagine this and you might have a pretty good idea of what it might be like to stand overlooking the lush green grounds of Fancourt, the premier leisure resort on the Garden Route on a still-and-sunny winter's day morning.
