In terms of an all-Inclusive top wildlife experience, it doesn't get much better than this! Enjoy 5-days at Simbavati River Lodge, in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve.


Experience luxury safari at Simbavati River Lodge while viewing the wildlife that Africa is famous for. The lodge is situated in the Timbavati Game Reserve which forms part of the Greater Kruger Park and offers excellent game viewing including all the Big Five and is home to rare white lions and wild dogs. The Simbavati River Lodge will make you feel at ease with its attentive staff and luxury accommodation.

Day 1: Timbavati Private Nature Reserve in the Greater Kruger

Begin your journey in Johannesburg with a flight from OR Tambo International Airport to Hoedspruit Airport. On your arrival in Hoedspruit, you will be met and have a short transfer to the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve and to the Simbavati River Lodge where you'll spend 5 days in comfortable luxury whilst exploring the African bushveld.

Simbavati River Lodge enjoys a unique setting on the banks of Kruger Park’s Nhlaralumi River in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve. Your stay is in one of the luxury safari tents which has spacious game-viewing decks with either a river or bush view. Explore the facilities and every step unveils a new surprise, whether it's a dainty impala crossing your path or a romantic place in which to relax.

In the late afternoon, you'll head out into the bush for up-close animal encounters, and to witness the most spectacular red-sky sunset you will ever see. Be sure to be on the lookout for the reserve's famous white lion.

Day 2-4: On Safari

Dawn and dusk game drives are offered. Enjoy traversing the vast open tracts of the bush with your ranger who will make a note of what you hope to see on your South African safari. Your guide is often a keen photographer and will be conscious and considerate if your mission is to capture sightings on camera. The morning drive includes a refreshment stop before returning to the lodge for breakfast.

The rest of the day is yours to do as you choose.

Between game drives, you could enjoy a game-viewing experience of note just sitting on the deck as wildlife comes and goes from the waterhole right below the dining deck. You could rest by the pool before lunch or relax in your suite.

After high tea, the evening drive pauses for intimate sundowners at a scenic spot along the way, after which your ranger will search for nocturnal wildlife with a spotlight on the way back to the lodge.

Day 5: Final Game Drive

This is the final day of your safari in Timbavati. After a morning activity and breakfast, you'll say farewell to the African bush. Depart Timbavati Private Game Reserve by returning to Hoedspruit Airport for your onward air transfer to Johannesburg.
