COVID-19 Testing in Timbavati

COVID-19 testing in the Timbavati

Kambaku is able to provide for the PCR COVID testing of our guests at the lodge, in the comfort of their room. Once the test has been taken, it will be couriered straight away to the nearest lab and results are available within 24 hours and delivered straight to the guest. Trained personnel will arrive at the lodge just after the morning game drive and complete the test.


Alternatively a transfer into Hoedepsruit can be organized for the tests to be conducted there.

Price on Request. This service is billed directly to the guest and is payable on checkout to the lodge.

COVID-19 testing is available 24/7 at ORTIA

Alternatively to the above, travelers departing South Africa from OR Tambo International Airport (ORTIA) can be COVID-19 PCR-tested and collect their certificate at the airport prior to departure.

National Health Laboratory Service (www.nhls.ac.za) is operating three mobile COVID-19 Test Units in clearly identifiable vans located opposite the InterContinental Hotel, in front of the Police Station, on the lower level of the airport complex. The service is available 24/7 according to Port Health Services, at a cost of R600 (cash, cheque cards and credit cards are accepted, except American Express). Children under five years do not require a test.

Results are available in four to six hours and the traveler is advised by SMS that the test result and certificate are ready for collection. After testing, travelers can wait for the SMS at the airport or nearby, collect the certificate, and proceed to fly. Alternatively, the test may be done a day or two prior to departure if preferred, and the certificate collected on the day of departure.

Inbound travelers to South Africa, including South Africans, must hold a negative PCR test certificate taken within 72 hours of their departure time. This certificate is valid for the duration of the traveler’s inbound journey and takes into consideration long stopovers at transit points, but the test validity has a maximum of 14 days and is for a single entry only. (Every time a traveler departs for South Africa, a new test is required prior to departure.)

On arrival in South Africa, the traveler must produce a printed copy of the test certificate. However, Port Health says travelers who receive their certificate on a mobile device whilst travelling, who are not able to print a copy, and only have the certificate on their phone/device, are permitted to email a copy of the certificate to ortia.operations@health.gov.za.
