Thank you for your contribution to a more sustainable safari industry

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all our guests and trade partners for supporting the Timbavati’s new Conservation Levy model, which became effective as of 1 January 2018.

Your part in generating revenue for the management of the Timbavati directly contributes toward conserving the Greater Kruger landscape, where security efforts have had to increase exponentially over the last few years. The Timbavati security costs make up at least 50% of the operational budget of the reserve, and we are eternally indebted to the unwavering dedication of the Timbavati field rangers, as they play an absolutely vital part in the protection of all endangered species in the fenceless, open system that is the Greater Kruger National Park. The success of the Timbavati security efforts is evident as Timbavati remains the reserve with the lowest losses of rhino per hectare in the whole of the Greater Kruger.

Tanda Tula’s central involvement in conservation and sustainable tourism makes us acutely aware of the importance of your contributions through the Conservation Levies. You have all clearly understood our philosophy that we must increase our financial contribution to the conservation effort in the Greater Kruger because it is the right thing to do for sustainable tourism. Your continued support is not only helping to secure a positive future for the Timbavati, but it is also helping to maintain and even grow the wilderness areas of which we form a part.

So once again from the entire Tanda Tula family, to everyone who chooses to visit or send guests to the Timbavati, we express our deepest thanks.
