An extraordinary safari experience awaits you in the Southern section of Thornybush Private Nature Reserve, in the heart of the Greater Kruger National Park, where you will find Sivitit Timbavati Homestead. For multi-generational travel seekers and families who want to spend quality time together while sating their adventurous spirits, this 5 Star Lodge is an enchanting African escape.
Situated along the Timbavati River known for its abundance of dense grass and trees, this region is home to an array of wildlife and is perfectly nestled over along the river. The camp was previously fenced which limited the movements of elephants resulting in high volumes of grassland. Now, these majestic animals can move freely through reserves offering guests unique sightings.
Siviti Timbavati Homestead is a lodge set in a remote and private part of the Thornybush Private Nature reserve which offers its guests all the comfort, convenience and privacy of their own home. With 4 spacious en-suite bedrooms, an outdoor safari bath, a dedicated host, game ranger and cook, guests have the flexibility to plan their day according to their own specific needs and it’s the perfect lodge for the longstays and the sole use of a family or friends of up to 8 people.
We’re not sure if it’s the interiors, food, landscape or the fact that the lodge blends seamlessly into the landscape - whatever the case, it ticked all of our boxes.
Siviti Timbavati Homestead can be booked on a fully catered or self-catered option and is ideal for families or friends travelling together.

Best time to visit?
Thornybush is a year-round destination, but game viewing is at its best during the dry winter months, from May to September, when the foliage is less dense, and animals tend to congregate at the remaining water sources.
