About Timbavati Safari Lodge
Timbavati Safari Lodge is a family owned business just 20km’s from the Orpen Gate of the world renowned Kruger National Park. It is situated in the African bushveld, engulfing the Lodge in a pristine wildlife environment with a number of free roaming game.
The Lodge accommodation consists of beautiful, traditional Ndebele painted rondawels and family chalets which are located in amongst the shady trees and natural surroundings encouraging a relaxing, peaceful atmosphere. All 35 rooms are with en-suite, ceiling fans, a small desk area and veranda.
The team at Timbavati Safari Lodge take pride in ensuring the guests have a memorable African experience. After a long day game spotting in one of our Kruger National Park registered open game vehicles, the newly furnished bar and restaurant is ready and waiting to serve our guests. The guests are welcome to relax at their rondawel on the outside veranda, by the swimming pool or alternatively in the lounging area.
In the evening, once the African sky is starlight, dinner will be served. Weather permitting, this could be a stunning evening enjoyed in either the reeded boma served with a traditional South African braai menu and African tribal dancing to follow or next to the swimming pool with a hearty African potjie. Either way, the calls of the nearby wildlife will enhance the mystery of the African bush.
