Timbavati Game Reserve



We recommend you try any of these highly acclaimed lodges while in the Hoedspruit area:

Simbavati River Lodge

An intimate and family-friendly camp, built on the banks of the Nhlaralumi River; a beautiful watercourse in the summer months when rain is plentiful, and a dry riverbed in the winter months.

Gomo Gomo Game Lodge

During the day, guests can relax on the patio in the shade of a century-old weeping boer bean tree or cool down in the swimming pool which overlooks the busy waterhole. At night, the camp is transformed into an African wonderland with kerosene flares, creating a true safari ambience.

Kings Camp

Kings Camp faces an open savanna plain with a waterhole, which is frequented by a wide variety of wildlife, both day and night. You have plenty of space to explore the endless variety of Africa’s wildlife in an open Land Rover or on foot, as this safari lodge is a wildlife haven boasting a diversity of animal life, including the Big 5.

Motswari

The name Motswari means "to conserve and protect" in Tswana, and the owners have held the name to be a promise to each of their future friends who arrive to share in the splendour of an African sunset at this vintage bush lodge.

Umlani Bushcamp

This beautifully designed eco lodge is off the grid and beaten tourist track, offering intimate and thrilling wildlife encounters, award-winning meals and a chance to reconnect with nature in one of Africa's world-renowned, unspoilt wilderness reserves.

Kambaku River Sands

Being completely unfenced, the camp is home to a continuous stream of game, with almost daily up-close and personal experiences with elephant, buffalo, hyena, warthog and bushbuck to name a few.

Imbali Safari Lodge

French doors run the length of the room to let the beautiful outside wilderness in; an expansive deck overlooks the Nwaswitsontso river or savannah grasslands with a Jacuzzi or outdoor pool to complete your leisure bush experience.

Avoca Private Bush Camp

Avoca Private Bush Camp is a safari retreat for friends and family in the Timbavati Nature Reserve, which can be booked on a self-catering or fully catered basis. Open to the Kruger National Park, yet occupying private land, Avoca is wild and tranquil, offering an exclusive safari experience in simple, bush camp accommodation.

Walkers Bush Villa

In the midst of the world-renowned, game-rich Timbavati Private Nature Reserve lies a grand and somewhat stately five-star, 4-bedroom country villa, hugged by wild bushveld and endless vistas of the Kruger. Walkers Bush Villa is an ornate yet relaxed bush hideaway.
