The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve has embarked 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 greater 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.

GATE FEES

What are gate fees collected for?

In order for our gates and road to be beautifully maintained and managed, a fee is charged to support this function. Your visit helps make a difference.

CONSERVATION LEVY

What is the conservation levy used for?

You make the difference! The Conservation Levy is used entirely in the funding of the operational activities of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.

10% of all Conservation Levy income is used for community development projects through the Timbavati Foundation. Read more about the Timbavati Foundation.
