Timbavati Safari Lodge is located at the Southern Gates of Kruger National Park. While less popular than the approach from Hazyview/Graskop, this the game is really good (in 2 days saw pretty much everything but the elusive leopard).
This place is staffed by the most amazing people -many of them came as travelers to Africa and stayed back because they fell in love with Kruger National Park ;and they bring this love of the bush to everything they do.
One of the liveliest bars ever, with people from all over the world -we got some great travel tips for Africa from the people there.
We stayed in the charming rondawels (round houses-literally) although we had friends in the tents. It gets cold in May-June so didnt think it was a great idea.Rooms are nice and comfortable.Hot water,clean towels, wake up calls, morning coffee -all very hospitable and efficient.
This is a must go if you want to feel the wildlife experience . These guys really LIVE THE BUSH !
