African safaris in the Timbavati Private Reserve are exceptional, with an abundance of the big five as well as hyena, honey badger, kudu, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, waterbuck, impala and warthog. The larger and more rare antelopes like Roan, Eland and Tsessebe have been slow to return to the area, but the critically endangered African wild dog is a regular visitor. The Timbavati is also home to over 360 bird species, 79 species of reptile, 49 species of fish and 85 listed species of tree.
