Sanbona Tilney Manor
Tinley Manor is situated in the Sanbona Reserve, the first free roaming Big 5 wildlife and nature reserve in the Western Cape. In the heart of the Little Karoo, it offers endless open plains and sculpted Cape fold mountains adorned with San rock art, endemic flora and some of South Africa’s most sought-after wildlife. Historic Tinely Manor is one of 3 lodges on the reserve. With only 6 suites, it’s for those seeking a refuge of peace and tranquillity.
The manor has spectacular views of the undulating mountains and landscape. The 6 open-plan suites all have private verandas to indulge in the views. At Tinley Manor you will experience authentic Karoo cuisine, a signature heritage lounge, and a rim-flow pool. You can indulge your senses at the Relaxation Retreat which boasts a steam room and sauna while witnessing a pure African spectacle – a Karoo sunset. And not to forget the daily game drives, wilderness walks and stargazing.
