    Activities

    The game viewing experience in Timbavati is one of the best in South Africa. The reserve is home to the ‘Big 5’ (lion, leopard, cape buffalo, rhinoceros and elephant).

    Timbavati is home to the highest density of lion in the country. The reserve is also frequently traversed by large herds of elephant and buffalo.

    The guides and trackers at the lodge are all qualified by and registered with the Field Guides Association of South Africa. As such, they will bring the bush to live with their great interpretation of the sounds, sights, and behaviors that you encounter.
