We had a wonderful 4 nights stay at Timbavati Safari Lodge as part of our honeymoon in South Africa. The whole team working at the Lodge were attentive and made us feel welcome and part of the family. Kylie helped us to plan our 4 days wisely and was always on hand when we left and arrived back from each game drive or other activity, working around weather constraints to give us the best experience.
Our guide, Godfrey, met us at the airport and was with us throughout, taking us on game drives both in Kruger and the neighbouring government game reserve, to our hot air balloon ride and elephant safari - he was a fountain of knowledge and had some amazing stories from the bush! One of the (many) highlights was a game walk on the non-big 5 reserve that the Lodge sits on with Axon - coming face to face with zebra and giraffe on foot is quite a different experience than from the safety of a game truck.
During afternoons we relaxed by the pool (being winter everyone thought we were mad, but compared to Scotland it was positively tropical! At night we were treated to delicious food, fireside dining and a lively atmosphere in the boma and the bar with the excellent Luke in charge of things. With resident mongoose, vervet monkeys and visiting warthog every moment was a safari and coming home to zebra at your front door is always a interesting experience too!
Thank you so much for making our honeymoon so very special!!
