The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve has a collective total of 18 all-inclusive lodges and 4 self-catering camps. For every night you stay in the Timbavati, you contribute to the conservation of our wildlife and to the support and development of our surrounding local communities.
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.
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.
