The Timbavati Game Reserve is part of the Greater Kruger Park, and there are no fences between Timbavati and the rest of Kruger. There are a number of well-priced private game lodges in the Timbavati Game Reserve, and a few top luxury lodges as well.
Compared to the Sabi Sand reserve further south, the Timbavati has fewer roads and fewer vehicles, which on the one hand adds greater exclusivity, but on the other hand means the game viewing is slightly less consistent than in the Sabi Sand reserve. That said, the same animals can be found in the Timbavati as in the rest of Kruger, including the Big 5, and from time to time there are still some reported sightings of the rare white lions of Timbavati, for which this reserve has become famous.
One of the main reasons many travellers choose the Timbavati as safari destination, is its affordability compared to the Sabi Sand.
Below are a few of our safaris which may include the Timbavati Game Reserve as one of the destinations. Keep in mind all our itineraries are flexible and can be tailor-made to suit your exact requirements.
