Discerning guests are drawn to Walkers Bush Villa because of its sense of exclusivity and grand sophistication. This is the ideal safari hideaway in the game-rich Timbavati Private Game Reserve, and offers an opportunity for small groups or families to tailor-make their own safari experience. Furnished with eclectic art and hints of Africa throughout, Walkers is certainly reminiscent of a bygone era. The villa offers its visitors an opportunity to be surrounded by luxury interiors and wild surrounds in a revered reserve. At Walkers, the villa is yours and yours only. A private chef and guide are at your disposal and will be flexible in terms of your needs.
Walkers is located in a big 5 area within the Timbavati on private land belonging to Ingrid and Howard Walker. The location is ideal for game drives and the large waterhole is a major drawcard for predators. Local lion kings like the Black Dam male lion often make an appearance for eager guests. Elusive leopards are often spotted on the outskirts of the villa and massive breeding herds of elephants frequent the small waterhole at the end of the perfectly-kept lawns. The location offers unsurpassed game viewing opportunities from both the grounds of the villa and the corners of the ‘veld.
But what about your accommodation? The place where you retire to after exploring the rugged surrounds is nothing short of stylish. We know we’ve introduced you to the ornate interior and furnished you with ample videos and photos, but our new manager has sent through a fresh batch of images from the villa. And we love nothing better than a brief visual walk-through of the rooms to gauge the kind of atmosphere expected prior to arrival.
There are 4 bedrooms at Walkers, one of which is the master bedroom and the other 3 the standard bedrooms. Each of the 3 bedrooms surround the courtyard and offer a sense of privacy. In total, the plush rooms sleep 10 people.
High-thread count linen and the highest quality mattresses are kitted throughout. Expect a maximum level of comfort while being surrounded by untamed surrounds and mysterious bushveld sounds.
The master bedroom, the pies de resistance, adjoins the main house and boasts an indoor bath and shower; and an outdoor bath in private area. There is also an adjoining sleep-out room that is also accessible from the patio.
