Lying approximately 450 km north-east of Johannesburg, the Timbavati Reserve area sits on both the Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces of South Africa. This wilderness area is often referred to as the Greater Kruger Park and is home to some of the best luxury safari experiences in Africa.
Kings Camp is located in the part of the Timbavati Reserve that has an abundance of mopane woodlands overlooking a waterhole that sees frequent wildlife visitors. In 1992 the western boundary fence between the Kruger National Park and the Timbavati was removed to create a 2.2 million-hectare open natural ecosystem that has resulted in the wildlife populations that make it a premier Big Five wildlife destination.
Characterised as ‘savanna bushveld’ with 6 different landscape types and a breeding ground of the endangered wild dog, this landscape presents a feast of sightings, from scenery to some of the most rarely seen creatures.
