The private reserves around Kruger—the Sabi Sands and Timbavati areas—are some of the most wildlife-rich areas in Southern Africa. If you have just a few days for a safari, and want to see as much wildlife as possible, then these areas are for you. Well known for its populations of the big five, the Timbavati reserve also enjoys a rich diversity of other animals, including the critically endangered African wild dogs. Get involved in the planning of your own South Africa safari online. Mix and match lodges to create a safari that suits your style and budget.
