The detail

Nestled in the Little Karoo, the 54 000 hectare Sanbona Reserve encompasses a dry, striking landscape and gorgeous views of the 350 million-year-old Warmwaterberg Mountains.

Tilney Manor prides itself on offering exceptional service and private, luxurious 5-star accommodation that offers complete comfort.

Tilney Manor boasts six luxurious Georgian style Suites. Each suite is open-plan and offers an en-suite bathroom with double vanities, a romantic freestanding bath and sheltered outdoor his-and-hers shower, as well as a fireplace, air conditioning, tea & coffee making facilities, minibar, in-room safe, and a private veranda with stunning views of the mountains and plains.

The lodge facilities include a comfortable living area with wood fireplace and satellite tv, indoor and outdoor dining areas, gift boutique, relaxation retreat with steam room and sauna, rim-flow swimming pool, and Wi-Fi access.

The ancient formations of the Cape Fold Mountains form a magnificent backdrop to all the activities on the reserve. Qualified rangers accompany guests on early morning and evening game drives and interpretative nature walks. Cruises on the Bellair Lake in the company of a qualified guide and skipper can be arranged, as can visit San rock art sites dating back more than 1 500 years. The absence of artificial light makes for spectacular stargazing.

Sanbona offers the Big Five and has the only free-roaming self-sustaining white lions in the world. The reserve is home to a variety of large and small antelope, zebra and wildebeest; and small game such as jackal, caracal, aardwolf, and hyena are present in the reserve. It is also home to the critically endangered and highly elusive Riverine Rabbit and the Dwarf Blue butterfly, the second smallest butterfly in the world

Over 200 bird species have been identified in the reserve, which has important raptor nesting sites, including that of the Verreaux's Eagle. African Fish Eagles, breeding pairs of majestic Black Eagles and Black Harrier are regularly sighted. The Bellair Lake provides a wetland habitat for a myriad of water birds, including kingfishers, Black-necked Grebe, and Maccoa Duck.

Tilney Manor is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for a private luxury safari experience.

Great great service!
It’s my 1st time going to Africa and I didn’t even know where to start. Thanks to Safari.com (Jayson and Catherin), I simply have not had to worry about anything. Their service and help has gone beyond any travel agent I’ve ever experienced. Any doubt I have, they were responsive, quick and efficient. And always so so nice.

Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates…
Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates on my Safari change a couple of times and she was more than accommodating making everything work for me with no stress. The resort she picked for me is absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to stay there. I’m also staying 3 nights in Cape Town and she took care of my hotel and of all my connecting flights . Was a big relief and spoke to her on the phone a couple of times. Very sweet highly recommend if you want a stress free vacation

Fast, Friendly, and Reliable Service
My travel advisor Mel was amazing. She was timely in her response, non judgemental about my budget, ans very helpful in figuring out potential safaris to fit my desires. She was super friendly and knowledgeable, and never once made me feel like I was out of my league.

Great service from Jayson at Safari.com
Jayson and his team have worked hard to help us put together a safari package that would hit all the points on our wish list. After weeks of work, when we came with some changes to the itinerary, he worked it in and added time in a location we hadn't considered, but we think is worth the time. They provided lot's of useful information and respond quickly to our frequent questions. Though we will not be taking our trip for a few weeks yet, we are excited and looking forward to having a once in a lifetime experience!
