Get to Know The Timbavati Game Reserve

Sharing its eastern border with the central Kruger Park, this expansive private reserve is studded with quality camps and lodges offering all-inclusive guided wildlife-viewing packages

This 530-square-kilometre private reserve was created in the 1950s when a group of conservation-minded landowners decided to regenerate an area of degraded farmland bordering the central Kruger Park The reserve is named after the Timbavati River, which flows along its southern boundary before crossing into the Kruger at Orpen Gate. Supporting all the Big Five in healthy numbers, it became an ecological extension of Greater Kruger in 1993, when fences were dropped to allow free movement of wildlife between the reserves.
