Itinerary

Day 1 - 3: Timbavati Private Game Reserve

Today you will depart on a scheduled flight from Johannesburg's OR Tambo Airport to the Timbavati Private Game Reserve where you will spend the next three days in ultimate luxury whilst exploring the African bushveld.

The mornings start with an early wake-up call and a fresh cup of brewed coffee or tea, before heading out into the bush with a highly skilled ranger and tracker for about 3 - 4 hours. Witness the bush come to life as animals awake and generally make their way to surrounding waterholes for a drink. Be sure to have your camera ready for some fantastic photographic opportunities.

After you return to camp, enjoy a hearty breakfast, followed by some free time to relax or venture out on an exciting bush walk with an armed ranger.  Discover the excitement and ancient secrets of the African wilderness as you walk amongst the vegetation and animals of the bush. This experience will be sure to awaken your senses.

In the late afternoon, you head out into the bush again for more 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.

Accommodation: Kings Camp

Day 4 - 6: Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve

After one final early morning game drive in the Timbavati, you return to camp for breakfast and collect your belongings before heading to the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve.

After settling into your luxurious suite and a sumptuous lunch, you will gear up for your first of many adventures in the Sabi Sands. Darkness brings about a time of both danger and respite in the bush which allows you to possibly spot smaller carnivores like Genet or Civet not usually seen by day. This is also the time when most predators hunt so your evening game drive could potentially be the most exciting of all.

No dinner will ever be the same at Leopard Hills, from dining under the stars in the traditional boma to fine silver service dinners in the dining room, or out on the upper deck where a cool breeze is a welcome relief from the African heat. The perfect end to a wonderful safari experience; a private dinner on the deck of your suite is offered to couples wanting to spend time together in privacy.

Those with a passion for wildlife photography will be able to get various tips from their ranger on taking the perfect picture, while on their game drive or walking safari. The rangers are avid fans of photography and many of them have entered renowned international and local competitions.

Accommodation: Leopard Hills

Day 7: Depart Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve

Your final morning in the African bush includes one last opportunity to see wildlife before heading back to Johannesburg's OR Tambo Airport where you will connect with your onward travel arrangements. You may leave Africa with a heavy heart but the experiences you have had remain etched in your memory forever.

Great, efficient, going above and beyond service by Nicole!
Nicole has been extremely helpful with my queries, and going above and beyond to help me understand the Sabi sands experience better. When one of the lodge I enquired was sold out, she also recommended various options I could explore, and offers her valuable point of view. Examples - she ensured to pass on my room requests successfully and liaised with the lodge efficiently, ensuring to make our anniversary experience at the safari a great one. She also proactively offered to help me to continue looking for alternatives when I told her the transport options were beyond my budget. Thank you so much Nicole! Because of this we look forward to our experience with Safari.com and at Arathusa lodge.

Repeat customer
I used Safari.com in 2022 when my husband and I went on our first safari to Kruger National Park. They were professional, quick and easy to work with. I was anxious to return again in 2024 and Mel didn't disappoint with her planning, quick response and attention to my requests. Unfortunately, I cannot complete my wish to return this year but when I do return...Mel is who I will reach out to.

Excellent safari company and agent
I have booked 2 safaris with Safari.com and Anja in particular. We have yet to take the second one but the first was a safari in Botswana. Everything far exceeded expectations and every detail handled with top notch drivers, hotels, safari lodges and guides. Anja was very responsive and helped us plan our safari. We were so happy with it that we are doing another this year.
