ABOUT Simbavati Machaton Private Camp

Machaton Private Camp is an intimate and exclusive camp offering a secluded and private safari experience in the well-known and breathtakingly beautiful Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. With just three individual luxury suites, it’s an intimate, private affair, ideal for romantics or exclusively for families and friends.

Part of the Greater Kruger National Park, Timbavati Private Nature Reserve is home to the Big Five and is one of the few places in the world where you have the opportunity to see the unique white lion in their natural environment. Your dedicated field guide and tracker will introduce you to the wonders of this wildlife experience on game drives in an open 4x4 vehicle. Over 40 resident mammal species include lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo, wild dog, cheetah, kudu, zebra and giraffe to name a few. Bird viewing is spectacular, with over 360 recorded species, and nocturnal animals, including the big cats, are regularly sighted on night drives.

Game viewing opportunities abound, one can retreat to your private individual suite comprising of a sumptuous bedroom, a day room, a well-appointed bathroom with an outdoor shower and an extensive private terrace with sun loungers. A spa treatment can also be arranged in the privacy of your suite. Privacy is guaranteed thanks to the careful placement of the suites and privacy walls, ensuring a tranquil and intimate stay.

Machaton’s terrace and plunge pool overlook the seasonal Nhlaralumi River, perfect for spotting animals while sipping cocktails and escaping the heat of the bush. Gather in the lounge and bar before a dinner of African-inspired cuisine in the dining area, around the fire in the open-air boma, or on the privacy of your suite patio. With a dedicated team of field guide and tracker, chef, butler, housekeeper and groundsmen, you’ll be well looked after during your stay.

Next, to owning a private safari lodge, there is no more of a private way to enjoy a safari.
