The 53,400-hectare Timbavati Private Game Reserve shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, ensuring a great diversity of free roaming wildlife. The ground is more undulating and the bush thicker than Sabi Sands but sightings are still excellent from the accommodation, open vehicles or foot safaris. This is the area noted for its white lions (a recessive genetic trait) – though none has been seen for many years. Accommodation choices range in style from luxury tented safari camps, traditional thatched bush lodges and colonial style game lodges.
