The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve is embarking on an initiative to increase conservation revenue through sustainable tourism.
This strategy was developed through a joint effort of the commercial operations within the Timbavati, as a means to provide the reserve with a more significant income from commercial tourism. This comes at a time when our wilderness areas are under greater threat than ever before, with exponential increases in security costs to combat wildlife crime.
