Timbavati Game Reserve

Overview

Timbavati Game Reserve is a game reserve located in the province of Mpumalanga in South Africa along the border of Kruger National Park. The park was formed initially in 1956 by a collective association of land owners called the “Timbavati Association” in efforts to conserve the encompassing area and its wildlife.

Over the years since its establishment, the reserve has strongly succeeded in protecting an abundance of animal species, including those that are rare and endangered. The landscape varies from sprawling and open grasslands to dense shrubbery in parts and exists within a sub-tropical climate. Some animals that can be found within the reserve include impalas, zebras, wildebeests, giraffes, and elephants to name a few. Along with the 40 different mammal species that can be spotted in the park, it is also a haven for bird lovers with roughly 360 unique bird species. The park is also known for its population of white lions, which contrary to popular belief are not albino. The white lions are believed to exhibit the evolutionary trait of loss of pigment in their fur, making them a rare sight to see.

Top Tips For Your Timbavati Game Reserve Safari Holiday

Timbavati is not as good for leopard spotting. It can often be hard to find this species, as the reserve is so large, especially after the wet season when the vegetation is growing. If you are keen to see leopard, you would do much better visiting the Sabi Sands Reserve, where they are particularly plentiful.
