Timbavati Kruger Park South Africa zebra

Timbavati, a private reserve bordering the main Kruger Park, hosts a wealth of mammal and bird species due to its unobstructed access. Its claim to fame lies in the extremely rare population of naturally white lions, found only in a few places across Africa. Despite the loss of the last white lion in 2017, the birth of a pigmented cub in 2018 ensures the legend endures.

Renowned for its exceptional guides, diverse safari activities, and luxurious lodges infused with romance, Timbavati offers an unparalleled safari experience for discerning travellers.
