Truly one of those romantic places you never forget, this lodge in the Greater Kruger National Park provides a luxury safari destination for your nearest and dearest. The 4 Day Tranquil Opulence Package includes three nights and four days in this pristine corner of Africa.
At this safari all guest areas face an open savannah plain with a waterhole, which is frequented by a wide variety of wildlife, day and night. Guests celebrate their experiences with elegant dining in a variety of settings both indoors and out. Newlyweds can have the safari honeymoon of their dreams.
The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park which means that Big Five game and a diverse range of other African wildlife roams freely in this region. Knowledgeable rangers will take you on a journey of discovery into the wilderness creating a family safari to remember.
Depart Johannesburg on a flight to a safari lodge in the Timbavati Private Reserve where you will be met by your ranger and introduced to the area. Your three nights and four days will be spent experiencing the gracious style of hospitality from a bygone era combined with luxurious modern comforts. You can retreat to a hammock on your private veranda or choose a perfect spot to relax in at the main lodge.
Each day is yours to discover at leisure. You could cherish a tranquil morning in your beautiful suite as the bushveld comes to life or enjoy a variety of superb daily activities and bird watching. Game drives led by your experienced ranger depart at dawn and dusk every day. You will be served tea, coffee and biscuits on the morning game drive and drinks and canapés on the sunset drive.
Your evening game drive gets back after dark, which gives you the opportunity to see nocturnal African wildlife with a spotlight. Dinners are a magical affair and could take place in a variety of settings. You could be dining in the atmospheric boma (outdoor enclosure) around a warming open fire, at a spectacular bush setting or even around the flood-lit waterhole.
Guided bush walks are available on request and take place just after breakfast. This is a wonderful way of experiencing the "finer" aspects of the Timbavati Nature Reserve. Additional activities offered include a scenic helicopter flight and excursions to a unique golf course and wildlife rehabilitation centre in the area.
In between activities you could indulge in a pampering massage either in your suite or at the therapy lapa (gazebo). For those maintaining a fitness regime, there is a fully equipped gym in the camp. Sun lovers can relax by the pool with a refreshing drink and game view at the same time.
Today you savour your last morning safari activity and a delicious breakfast on your Tranquil Opulence Safari Package before you leave Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. Bid a fond farewell to your African safari and catch your return flight to O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.
