    Timbavati Safari Lodge is a great place to stay with close proximity to the Kruger Park. Accommodation is reasonably priced, great friendly staff, good food and lovely atmosphere around the bar and boma in the evenings.

    They are really close to the KNP and are in effect, a 3-star establishment with neat, clean chalets, friendly staff and a really good boma dinner! If you are looking for a no-frills overnight stay, go no further!
