Kings Camp in the Kruger is a real ‘find’ hidden away deep in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger Park. This delightful lodge exudes the charm and romance of a colonial past. Abundant comfort and impeccable gracious hospitality are the hallmarks of this 20-bedded lodge. Kings Camp faces an open savanna plain with a waterhole, which is frequented by a wide variety of wildlife day and night. Kings Camp is famous for its lush green gardens which offer a contrast to the dry savanna bushveld.
Accommodation at Kings Camp
The 9 generously spacious suites are luxuriously equipped with air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom with Victorian ball-and-claw bath, indoor and outdoor double shower, fully stocked mini-bar and private veranda. Dark tones of wood and thatch offset the natural colors of the bushveld. Two of the suites inter-lead, making them ideal for a family group. The 2 honeymoon suites at Kings Camp are even larger with an open plan bathroom and enclosed toilet. They also have a private pool overlooking the bush.
Waterbuck Private Camp offers the ultimate in safari privacy. It is a 4-bedroom villa with its own landrover and game-ranger, as well as a personal butler and chef to take care of your every need. Waterbuck Private Camp is situated on a dry river bank, with great views. The camp can accommodate up to 8 guests in air-conditioned comfort.
Facilities at Kings Camp
Camp facilities include an inviting bar and lounge, viewing deck overlooking the spotlit waterhole, gym and sparkling pool. There’s also a sala for spa treatments and a small gym. When not on safari, you can enjoy a range of massages in their small spa. A library with satellite television and Internet facilities ensures that you keep up to date with the latest news while relaxing in tranquility. The staff and rangers at Kings Camp are passionate about sharing their knowledge of the Timbavati Game Reserve and its wildlife.
We like Kings Camp in the Timbavati because of its excellent cuisine, great selection of wines and flexible approach to guest’s wishes, with bush breakfasts and bush dinners under the African sky on offer.
