Explore Africa’s ecological richness in the most famous reserve on earth

Timbavati Private Game Reserve borders the world-renowned Kruger Park. In 1993, the border fences were removed from the area, allowing free animal migration between both areas and forming the Greater Kruger Conservancy Area. See the sights and explore Africa’s beauty through our morning and afternoon game drives. Take the experience to the max, and book a specialised Photography Safari, where our resident wildlife photography expert will guide you, helping you create photographic memories that speak for themselves. Or experience Africa up close and personal on a walking safari that allows you to meet her tiniest critters.

Wipe out the dust of the safari, and allow your cares to melt away at the Sunset Spa.  This experience in stillness will help you unwind and forget the cares of daily life. You’ll leave rejuvenated, refreshed and ready for another day of magic and exploration.
