Sanbona Wildlife Reserve

Tilney Manor Location Map

Sanbona Wildlife Reserve is 58,000 hectares of undulating mountains and plains, indigenous fauna and flora, rock formations and rock art, and is an experience and a destination not to be missed.

Traverse the landscape of the reserve with a qualified ranger in comfortable open Land Rovers. Numerous species of plants, animals, big game and birds can be seen during the morning or afternoon drives. Sundowner evening drives offer spectacular displays of light as the evening sun sets over the Little Karoo. Returning back after dark, nocturnal animals can often be seen.

Guests can also enjoy a boat safari, in search of hippos and birds such as fish eagles, grey herons and Egyptian geese.

At Tilney Manor, comfortable lounges with fireplaces for winter nights, private verandas, romantic freestanding baths and carefully sheltered outdoor showers are just a few of the pleasures that guests can enjoy. Other comforts include air-conditioning, satellite television, private bars and tea/coffee making facilities.

The fully equipped Spa offers guests the opportunity to recover from the rigors of the outside world and restore their sense of inner harmony.

Tilney Manor has 6 luxuriously appointed rooms, and this exclusivity ensures that guests can experience personal service and world-class cuisine in an atmosphere of privacy and tranquillity.

Cape Georgian decor draws on the natural colours of the surrounding stone and vegetation, with subtle touches of San culture influencing the design throughout the guest rooms and conference facility.

The lush oasis setting of Tilney Manor is surrounded by carefully laid out indigenous gardens, which include a rim-flow pool.
