Location

The Sanbona wildlife reserve is seated at the foot of the Warmwaterberg Mountain Range in the heart of Africa’s Little Karoo.

How to get there

Intermational flights to Cape town and approximately 270 kms from Cape Town. The travelling time on the dirt road, from the main gate, to Tilney Manor is approximately 45 mins.

Take the N1 highway in the direction of Paarl - There is a tollgate on this road, just before the Huguenot Tunnel.

Once through the tunnel, take the second turnoff to the right into Worcester (R60) - Follow the signs towards Robertson.

Drive through Robertson, still on the R60 into Ashton.
Proceed through Ashton - the R60 becomes the R62.
Carry on through Kogmanskloof and Montagu for about 43km.
Turn left at ‘Die Vlakte’ and Sanbona Wildlife Reserve sign.
Continue for 7km to reach the main entrance.
Proceed for another 15km to reach the Welcome Lounge.

Guests with suitable or 4x4 vehicles can drive themselves to their lodge from the main gate.
If you’re driving to your lodge yourself, it’s important to take note of the following:

Please follow the relevant signs in the reserve.
The recommended speed limit is 40km per hour.
Do not exit your vehicle as predators roam free.

The main gate closes at 18h00, should your arrival time be later, please advise prior to arrival in order to make arrangements.
