Siviti Safari Lodge, formerly known as Thornybush River Lodge, is derived from the Xitsonga word Xiviti meaning intellectual. With just six rooms, including the superb two-bedroom Timbavati Villa, the luxurious accommodation is limited to 12 guests ensuring a personalized wilderness experience.
Siviti’s land is named Timbavati Plains because historically the Lowveld area around the Timbavati River consisted of dense grass cover and trees. Previous fencing limited the movement of elephants, resulting in dense bush taking over the grass plains. With the removal of the fences and opening of reserves, elephants can once again move freely returning the area to its previous glory.
Set alongside the banks of the Timbavati river, guests will enjoy private views of curious and thirsty animals, specifically elephants, whether overlooking the main deck rim-flow pool or from the shaded waters of your private plunge pool.
Siviti is wrapped in luxury amidst the untamed African bushveld, guests will experience unsurpassed game viewing opportunities blended seamlessly with personalized service and prime amenities.
