Why the foundation needs your support
The Timbavati Foundation depends on the support of individuals, foundations, trusts and companies to ensure the ongoing success of its various programmes.
The Timbavati Foundation is also proudly supported by the lodges by way of a conservation levy. Whilst the levies are primarily used for the management of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve covering a massive 54 300ha, a portion thereof also helps finance community outreach projects which are managed by the Foundation.
