    We visited Timbavati with a large group of university students in June of 2016 and loved the cheerful and colorful rondavel huts, the excellent food and service and the close proximity to Kruger National Park. A warm and welcoming staff made our visit very comfortable!

    I felt like a princess in my beautiful rondavel--comfortable and luxurious! Very friendly staff and wonderful food. The organized safari drives in Kruger were awesome, and we also very much enjoyed visiting the neighboring school and neighborhood.
