Timbavati nestles among glades of mature, exquisite indigenous trees, and is a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers. The colourful, traditional Ndebele rondavels are spaced out amid beautiful shady trees, and offer guests en-suite, comfortable and clean accommodation in a truly African ambience. 

The magnificent bar and large pool, are the perfect cure for dry throats and dusty bodies. Guests can relax in the cosy lounge or stretch out under the African sun on one of the pool side lounges. Enjoy a braai in the reed boma, under a canopy of African starlight, the aromatic scents of venison and hearty ‘potjie’ lingering around a roaring open fire, while the calls of nearby wildlife enhance that unmatchable sense of mystery of the African bush. Game viewing on foot or in an open vehicle (with spotlights at night) is a must for every visitor.
