Accommodation in Timbavati Game Reserve
The Timbavati Reserve was once farmland, but in the 1950s the area west of the Kruger Park was reclaimed as a wilderness area. Today Timbavati is brimming with wildlife and shares open borders with the Kruger National Park. The reserve is particularly famous for the Big 5 and its white lions.
