TIMBAVATI, SOUTH AFRICA

Timbavati Game Reserve is home to one of nature’s most magnificent creatures, the white lion. Ancient folklore tells of a time when the local Shangaan tribe saw a bright light streaking across the sky and crash on the African savannah. Shortly thereafter the lions of Timbavati began giving birth to snow white cubs. These unique lions have been regarded as sacred ever since.

Timbavati Game Reserve encompasses a vast 580km2 of savannah on the western border of the Kruger National Park. The borders are unfenced and allow wildlife, including the Big Five, to migrate freely between the reserves. An abundance of plains game like kudu, giraffe, wildebeest, buffalo and waterbuck can be seen while the endangered African wild dog is also often spotted in Timbavati.
