Timbavati Private Nature Reserve

The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve’s immediate neighbors include the Kruger National Park to the east, Umbabat to the north, and the Klaserie and Thornybush reserves to the west. While the reserve has been open to the Kruger for more than 30 years, more recently, fences between the Timbavati and its neighbor to the west were also dropped, which opened an additional 14,500 hectares for natural species migration.

Its thriving tourism economy promotes employment and industry within neighboring communities. The reserve also finances an outreach body, the Timbavati Foundation, that runs a series of programmes that help neighboring communities in areas such as boreholes, sustainable shaded vegetable farming as well as environmental awareness programmes for schoolchildren.
