During the COVID pandemic and the global restrictions on travel a number of game lodges in the Timbavati had specials for local travellers to inspire South Africans to visit these world famous game lodges and help them survive the difficult times brought on by COVID.
These Timbavati specials lasted for about two years. Now that the pandemic has ended most of these specials have ended, however our team of travel experts have fantastic relationships with game lodges through out the Timbavati, Sabi Sand, Thornybush and other areas within the Greater Kruger National Park. Many of these lodges have special rates that are not advertised.
So contact us and talk to one of our travel experts who might be able to book you on one of these less known specials, like a pay 3 stay 4 nights special.

The Timbavati Game Reserve, in South Africa’s northeastern corner, is one of the country’s most prominent game reserves. It shares an unfenced border with the well-known Kruger National Park, allowing wildlife to freely travel between the two. The reserve was founded in 1956 by a group of concerned landowners who wanted to return farmland to its natural state. It includes roughly 53,392 hectares of varied landscapes, including woodland, savannah, and riverine bushveld. This mix of ecosystems supports a diverse range of flora and fauna, making it an ideal wildlife viewing destination.
Timbavati is home to more than 40 mammal species, including Africa’s famous “Big Five”: lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, and rhinoceroses. It is most known for its uncommon white lions, a genetic variety of the African lion that has been spotted infrequently in the reserve since the 1970s. Other resident species include cheetahs, hyenas, and numerous antelope species, as well as over 360 bird species, making it a birdwatcher’s dream.
It is a truly remarkable destination, so make sure you to take advantage of any Timbavati specials we might have running.
