Hi Bob,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Great to hear you will visit again and we look forward to it!! Maybe we can come on game drive with you next time since you were so lucky to see the White lion Cub in Kruger. Would love to see some photos if you have.

Was here in October 2014 and can still be bothered to write a review today because this lovely place more than deserves the praise. We couldn't have wished for a better welcome to Africa on our first visit - quaint, colourful huts, monkeys and warthogs on the porch included :). The atmosphere and food are lovely. Service is great. The hostess went out of her way in helping us get back the suitcase that got misplaced at the airport. The safari guide went out of his way to get us a great experience in the Kruger park. Definitely a place to go back to and definitely my preference over the places that are IN Kruger park.

Visited Timbavati Safari Lodge for our anniversary, and had a fantastic time. The room is average at best, but considering the 3 star rating, one can't expect much more. The service and friendliness from the staff, attention to detail, food and outdoor activities made the stay unforgettable. The staff went out of their way in every imaginable way to make our stay very special. From the moment we arrived it felt like a home away from home. All in all a fantastic experience, and we will certainly visit them again.

The small huts with its decorative painted outside puts you in the right mood emediatly. They are nicely and comfortably furnished. Nice bar and good restaurant also contributes to the good feeling when staying. We traveled with Nomad Travels so our visit was short, intense and lovely
Not top luxury but highly recomendable if you have resonable expectation of how it is to live in a safari lodge.
