Luxury Safaris in the Lowveld

The Lowveld lies below the Drakensberg Escarpment. The Kruger National Park is located here and it is undoubtedly the biggest and most exciting game reserve area in South Africa.

There are numerous private reserves in the area, many of them long established with outstanding records for nature conservation. Some of them adjoin each other and the Kruger Park and where this is the case there are no fences between them, so that the game can roam freely among them.

A select few of them are detailed below. We can arrange holidays including these or several others!

Sabi Sands

Situated near the regional centre, Nelspruit, and easily accessible by air, Sabi Sands shares 30 miles of unfenced border with one of the best parts of the Kruger park for seeing the Big 5. Fabulous for the whole array of animals, Sabi Sands is particularly known for wonderful leopard sightings.

There are 24 ultra luxury exclusive lodges in Sabi Sands, including the world renowned Londolozi and Mala Mala all of which offer fantastic experiences, but each of which has something a little different from the others.

Timbavati  is particularly well known for the rare and extraordinary white lions found there, but is also world renowned for research. It is very proud of a particularly effective community outreach record.

Timbavati is in the Hoedspruit area, easily accessible by air and road. It covers an area of 130 000 acres adjoining the Kruger Park with an unfenced border on one of the best game viewing areas in the park.

There are 12 superb lodges in the game reserve that offer the best possible game viewing experiences.

To find out more about Timbavati contact us today!


The 'Place of Stars', owned and managed by the local community, is a prime reserve lying between between Sabi Sands and Timbavati, with borders open to both of them and to the Kruger Park.

It is an exceptional game viewing area and has a particularly low density of accommodation and tourists, so occupants of the three superb safari lodges have the area to themselves.

Just north of Timbavati, close to the towns of Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa, and also open to the Kruger Park, is the beautiful Thornybush reserve.

With a specially coordinated approach among all the lodges in the reserve to make sure that every type of visitor experience is catered for, form honeymoon hideaways to children's walks, Thornybush offers the perfect experience in this excellent game viewing area.
