Travel to Timbavati Region

Timbavati Region

One of South Africa’s Top 10 Private Game Reserves, Timbavati Private Game Reserve is 53,392 hectares of private land on Kruger National Park southern border. This border is unfenced to allow the wildlife to wander freely and allows guests to experience the full assortment of animals that Africa has to present.

Timbavati has over 40 mammal species including the Big Five of Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo and Elephant as well as 360 species of bird life. Timbavati’s herds of buffalo are a must see. With so many species of birds it is possible to see more varieties of bids in one day than ever seen in a lifetime. Small nocturnal mammals such as porcupine, serval, genet and civet are great to see on night drives.

If South African visitors may have seen a white lion in captivity but the only known area to see them in the wild is Timbavati’s northern reserves. These unusual felines are not albino but actual have a condition where there is a loss of pigment in the skin and fur but not the eyes. See them in the wild is a treasured experience.

A fun way to see some of the animals is on a horseback or elephant back safari or by hot air balloon. There are also great bush walks where a visitor can see bushbuck, impala, zebra, kudu, blue-wildebeest, grey duiker, warthog and occasionally hyena or leopard.
