Timbavati Family Safari Lodges in Timbavati Game Reserve, South Africa. Kids on safari can partake in special activities.
Bordering the Kruger National Park, the Timbavati Private Game Reserve is well-known for its exclusivity, but not many know that it offers some exceptional family-friendly accommodation options.
Since we plan quite a few safari itineraries for families, we know how stressful it can be for Moms and Dads looking to take their loved ones into the wilderness. Over the years we’ve been hard at work curating a select few options where safety and comfort is a top priority, and the kids are well taken care of, along with the adults.
From family-friendly suites to organised programmes and special kiddies meals, this is your chance to experience the magic of the Timbavati with the little ones in tow.
Start by taking a look at a few of our favourites below, then get in touch with us and we’ll help you plan the rest of your holiday.
