Guests planning a Timbavati safari at Kings Camp can look forward to twice daily game drives in custom-designed safari vehicles, night drives with a spotlight in search of nocturnal creatures, guided bush walks and specialised bird watching safaris with expert guides. The Timbavati is especially well known for its frequent elephant sightings, as well as leopard and rare African wild dog. It is also home to over 350 bird species, making it a must-see destination for keen bird watchers.
Morning & Afternoon Game Drives
Twice daily game drives are conducted at Kings Camp in customised luxury game viewing vehicles. All drives are led by qualified professional guides and trackers. Vehicles accommodate a maximum of 6 guests to ensure outings remain personal and highly exclusive. Tea, coffee and biscuits are served on morning drives. Canapés and sundowners are served on afternoon drives.
Private safaris offer the ultimate flexibility and exclusivity for game viewing activities on a Kings Camp safari. For avid photographers and specialist bird watching, a private guide and vehicle is the best way for you to set your own pace as you explore the reserve. Private safaris are also an excellent option for families with younger children. Activities can be tailored to their interests and timetables without interfering with anyone else.
Game Walks through the bush take place just after breakfast, on request. Your knowledgeable ranger will guide you as you uncover this new aspect of the fauna and flora of the Timbavati Nature Reserve. You will be amazed to discover animal tracks, dung, insects and trees and how they all play a part in an intricate ecological web. For safety reasons, children under 16 years of age are not permitted on walks.
The Greater Kruger Park is renowned as one of the best places in Africa to photograph the Big 5. The Timbavati is unmatched for the high quality of wildlife sightings, professional guiding and custom vehicles that will help to ensure that you always have an uninhibited view of your subject. Whether you’re interested in capturing birds, big game or even the beautiful landscape of the Timbavati, photographic safaris at Kings Camp offer a world-class experience behind the lens.
Avid bird-watchers will struggle to replicate the quality of bird watching in the Timbavati.
