Timbavati Safari Lodge is situated only minutes from the heart of the world-renowned Kruger National Park – Orpen Gate and lies on the border between the Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces of South Africa. The Lodge is ideally located offering both local and international visitors an array of choices for adventures, activities and Safaris.
Timbavati nestles among glades of mature, exquisite indigenous trees, and is a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers. Our colourful, traditional Ndebele rondavels are spaced out amid beautiful shady trees, and offer our guests’ en-suite, comfortable and clean accommodation in a truely African ambience.
Our 35 rooms and lodge facilities are well equipped for large groups and ideal for Tour Operators, corporate functions, conferences, weddings and most special occasions, up to 120 guests.
No matter how intimate or how group-oriented your visit, we'll strive to ensure the perfect mood and an altogether wonderful experience. Our magnificent bar and large pool, are the perfect cure for dry throats and dusty bodies. Guests can relax in our cozy lounge or stretch out under the African sun on one of our pool side lounges.
Enjoy a braai in our reeded boma, under a canopy of African starlight, the aromatic scents of venison and hearty ‘potjie’ linger around a roaring open fire, while the calls of nearby wildlife enhance that unmatchable sense of mystery of the African bush. Game viewing on foot or in an open vehicle (with spotlights at night) is a must for every visitor.
Enter the world famous Kruger National Park with one of our highly trained guides, and experience the rush of adrenalin that comes with sighting Africa’s Big Five up close in their natural surroundings.
Guests may choose to spend their time exploring the rest of the Lowveld bushveld by visiting places such as the Blyde Canyon, Bourkes luck potholes, the three rondavels, God’s Window, Pilgrims Rest, The Hoedspruit endangered species centre, Moholoholo rehabilitation centre and the Kamahi Reptile Park.
