Overview of Timbavati Safaris

The Timbavati Private Game Reserve is one of the premier extensions of the Kruger National Park. Encompassing 53 392 hectares of prime lowveld wilderness, Timbavati is somewhat quieter than its southern cousin the Sabi Sand, which makes for a more intimate and exclusive safari experience.

The lodges we typically use for our safaris in Timbavati are either high level four star camps of an inclusive nature, or plush five star outposts with an emphasis on attention to detail. The daily schedule tends to be uniform across the board, beginning with an early morning wake up call for your morning safari. Midday is spent relaxing in camp, venturing out on a bush walk or opting for a pampering spa treatment. The late afternoon is then again dedicated to premium game viewing.

Depending on your preferences, evenings can be for stargazing, fireside ambience and storytelling. Lodge staff will occasionally surprise guests with a boma night, which combines dining under the stars with traditional local fare and festivities. Alternatively, relax on the deck of your suite and single out sounds in the spellbinding cacophony of the wilderness at nighttime.
