The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve has a collective total of 12 fully inclusive lodges and 3 self-catering camps. Every night you stay in the Timbavati you make a contribution not only to the conservation of our wildlife, but to the support and development of our surrounding local communities.
The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve has embarked on an initiative to increase conservation revenue through sustainable tourism. This strategy was developed through a joint effort of the commercial operations within the Timbavati, as a means to provide the reserve with a more significant income from commercial tourism. This comes at a time when our wilderness areas are under greater threat than ever before, with exponential increases in security costs to combat wildlife crime.
What is the conservation levy used for?
You make the difference! The conservation levy is used entirely in the funding of the operational activities of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. 10% of all conservation levy income is used for community development projects through the Timbavati Foundation.
