The Timbavati Game Reserve

The Timbavati Game Reserve is located at the border line between  Hoedspruit in (Limpopo) and Acornhoek in (Mpumalanga), and also north of the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve. The reserve forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park and lies nestled next to Kruger National Park.

In Xitsonga, the name ‘Timbavati’ means “the place where something sacred came down to Earth from the Heavens“, and refers to the rare white lions of Timbavati.
