About the Timbavati & Umbabat Private Nature Reserve

The breathtaking Timbavati and Umbabat Private Nature Reserve is located in a conservation area, known as the Greater Kruger Park that stretches from Mpumalanga into the Limpopo province of South Africa. The Timbavati and Umbabat Private Nature Reserve shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, which allows animal species to move freely between these expansive parks. Guests can therefore look forward to exceptional game viewing moments.

The region is easily accessible by air or road and is a six- to seven-hour drive from Johannesburg. The climate in this area is subtropical and rains fall during summer. The warmer months of the year roll in from October to March, whereas winter is from April to September. Generally speaking, daytime temperatures are pleasant, but mornings and evenings can be cool.

About Limpopo

My husband and I stayed here in February and absolutely loved it! Consistent with other reviews, the service is incredible and the safari drives are very professional and rewarding. It really does feel like home and everyone does their best to make you comfortable. Wildlife viewing was superb, meals were excellent and the room and shared space beautifully appointed…

We stayed here for 5 nights and at the end I wished had booked for another 5. It's simply a paradise on earth in all imaginable ways. The lodge oversees the African bush and we saw some nyalas just next to the lodge, a herd of elephants having a bush lunch just nearby, in addition to giraffes further away. Even better, you can enjoy the view while sipping a drink in the terrace pool. I would go back in a heartbeat if an opportunity would arise. Will make sure it arises one day.

The view on the terrace by the pool was stunning and the noises from the bush was captivating, we heard a lion kill in the middle of the night and it sounded so close! Cannot recommend this lodge highly enough…
