A hidden gem within the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.

One of the best kept secrets in the Lowveld is the fabulous Graeme Naylor Museum, located in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. It’s packed with interesting and fascinating displays that unlock many secrets of the natural history of the area.

One display is devoted to the famous white lions of the Timbavati – only when you stand next to one of these mythical creatures do you realize how big they are.

Another display showcases the dozen of species of freshwater fish found in South Africa – who would have thought you’d find so many species in such an arid area? Another fascinating display that shows how elephants go through many sets of molars in a lifetime, as well as a huge variety of spectacularly beautiful moths and butterflies.

These displays and many others are all there waiting for you to “discover.” For over a decade this world class museum has attracted thousands of visitors; including nearly 40, 000 school children from neighboring underprivileged communities.

Located in the reserve, visits are by appointment only.
