Timbavati Private Nature Reserve Safaris

A stunning area of wilderness, Timbavati is a magnificent private reserve found in the rolling Lowveld. The reserve is renowned for its famous white lions, which were discovered in the mid 1970's. This rare colouring is easily mistaken for albinism but it is in fact a recessive gene that causes the colour difference.
