Did you know?

The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve is one of the few places in the world where you have the opportunity to see the unique white lion in their natural environment. The resident lion prides of Timbavati carry the recessive gene “chinchillia’ that is responsible for this unusual anomaly. Two white lions were born into resident prides, and guests have a great chance of seeing these cubs while visiting either of the Simbavati Safari Lodges.
