Escape the clutter of everyday life

Being together in the wide-open spaces of the Timbavati, surrounded by the stillness of nature, allows you to celebrate your devotedness while escaping the noise of your everyday life. These wild areas also offer an unrivalled privacy, giving you and your partner the opportunity to truly be together uninterruptedly.

The romance of being immersed in nature and enjoying all the quiet beauty surrounding you means you can escape the stress of your normal existence, breath in the clean, fresh air and take time to truly connect with yourself and each other.

Gentle rhythm of safari life

Between our two daily game drives there is time to relax, enjoy the warmth of the African sunshine, relish the slowing down of time. Our relaxed routine is the same everyday which means you quickly take on the calming rhythm of bush life.

When you are shrouded in so much natural splendor and stillness your whole nervous system calms down and your senses start to sharpen. You are awakened by your environment, sharing magical moments on game drive or during a bush walk or even in our gorgeous camp.
