Accommodation

River Sands Villa in Timbavati is warm and welcoming and consists of two bedrooms privately situated, opening onto a beautiful game viewing deck with a riverfront view. The main bedroom is furnished with a King-size bed, and the second bedroom is furnished with twin beds. The en-suite bathrooms are fitted with a bath and double rain shower.

Dining

Breakfast and lunch are served daily outside on the wooden deck, set out under age-old Jackalberry and Leadwood trees, combining African and Western cuisine offering exciting new tastes for the more adventurous as well as for the more conventional preferences. A traditional dinner is served around the campfire in an open-air boma, an experience not to be missed.

Activities

This Villa has a broad appeal, with a traditional safari ambience but with a relaxed contemporary twist in terms of décor. It caters well to couples and honeymooners with a safari spa and a fully equipped fitness centre. One of Simbavati River Sands winning charms is the popular waterhole right below the dining deck, much loved by elephants. Between game drives, you could enjoy a game-viewing experience of note just sitting on the deck as wildlife comes and goes from the water.
