It is your time to take a run or a walk on the wild side. Registrations are now closed but we are excited for the Timbavati Traverse 2022 event!

We are thrilled to not only be hosting an ultra-marathon run but also a half-marathon walk too within the beautiful Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. 53 000ha of pristine wilderness which boasts great sightings of wildlife as well as home to the big five.

This year runners & walkers alike will not only be running to help protect Timbavati’s wildlife and their guardians, but also to raise funds to support the Timbavati Foundation who does incredible work for the Timbavati’s neighbouring rural communities.
