Welcome to the Timbavati Traverse! In 2024, we’re thrilled to introduce an exciting addition to our lineup: the Virtual Run. But what exactly is a virtual run, you might ask?

Imagine experiencing the thrill of traversing the Timbavati landscape, regardless of your location in the world. That’s the magic of a virtual run. Unlike traditional races where participants gather in one physical location, a virtual run allows runners to participate from anywhere, at any time, all while still feeling connected to a larger community of fellow adventurers.

Participants can choose their own routes, whether it’s through urban streets, scenic trails, or even on a treadmill at home.  It’s an inclusive and flexible way to engage with the Timbavati Traverse experience, catering to runners of all levels and abilities.

So, whether you’re a seasoned marathoner, casual jogger or walker, join us in embracing the spirit of adventure and exploration with the Timbavati Traverse Virtual Run. Get ready to lace up your shoes, set your own course, and run for conservation.
