The Timbavati is a large tract of natural bush which stretches 40 km from north to south and 24 km from east to west at the widest point.

Ensuring that the animal and plant species in such a vast area is protected from the ever increasing demand for natural products in the eastern countries, is a full time job, which demands high levels of training, dedication and commitment.

That is why Timbavati employ only strong, well trained and dedicated men who have to pass a stringent selection process. These men spend their lives patrolling and protecting our natural heritage.

Timbavati has in the past year increased the number of staff involved in this function and will further increase the number in the current year. These men are equipped with state of the art equipment and have been very successful in their fight against rhino poachers.
