Sweet little lodge houses, good but no extraordinary food. Great safari guides. Takes the extra turn back just for you and enjoys to find the animals. Comfortable jeeps with great seats, suitable for whole day safari.

Rather calm at the moment, surprisingly. Everything you need is there, nice Ambiente, cozy. Don't mix it up with exclusive luxury camps.

"Great venue BUT "

HiWe enjoyed our short stay Timbavati the place was ok, friendly reception from Rob.The bar lady might do with some assistance as she has to take orders and serve drinks during dinner, a waiter to assist her would speed up the she serves drinks to all the guests. The lodge is unfortunately located next to a village which spoilt our african bush experience loud music from nearby church and singing till late. Not sure how why will be addressed.

"Hidden costs"

Clean and friendly staff. The unfortunate part is that there were hidden costs. Upon arrival we were told that we qualify for a game drive because we booked for 3 (three nights) and we went for that drive the next day. On departure we were surprised to see the cost of a game drive for two which is (R450.00 ea), R900.00 in total included in the invoice. We never questioned anyone and just paid.
