Set in South Africa’s sparsely inhabited Timbavati Game Reserve, is, even by off-the-beaten-track African safari standards, way off radar. Opened in 2015, the property has seven suites and this year sees the launch of a private villa with two bedrooms, dining room and pool. The Timbavati Reserve, at the western edge of Kruger National Park, is home to the “big five”, including prides of rare white lions, and Makanyi offers game drives, bush walks, fishing trips or visits to Blyde River Canyon and the Drakensberg Mountains. Guests pay a nightly levy of £20 each, which contributes to the protection of Timbavati, including the provision of security cameras, fences and rangers, who patrol the reserve to prevent rhino poaching.
