Tilney Manor is a luxury 6 suite lodge in the stunning Sanbona Game Reserve.

Tilney Manor offers six open plan suites leading onto private verandas boasting panoramic views. Each expansive suite has king or twin beds, and an ensuite bathroom with freestanding bath, shower and twin basins. All rooms have air conditioning and open fires, hot drinks facilities, a minibar, and indulgent outdoor showers. Guest areas at the manor include indoor and alfresco dining areas, a gift shop, TV lounge, and a relaxing spa, and the verdant gardens house a lovely infinity pool.

Activities at Sanbona include game drives and guided walks with experienced, informed guides, plus boat excursions on Bellair Dam. Ornithologists will enjoy identifying some of the 200 resident bird species, whilst the unique Karoo landscape of stunning colourful succulents and distinctive quartz fields is a must for photographers. Visit one of the seven ancient San Rock art sites in the reserve, which date back 3,500 years. Free from light pollution, the night skies offer splendid conditions for stargazing, and each lodge has a powerful telescope and a guide to explain the constellations.

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

  • Dear Lisa,
    We have just returned from South Africa and wanted to pass on our huge thanks for helping to organise such a fantastic holiday. The entire trip was amazing - accommodation was first class. The safari was incredible!
    We'll be sure to get in touch when we're next planning an adventure!
    Best wishes, Ed & Jane

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
