Overview

Hamiltons Tented Safari Camp offers a unique safari experience that is the epitome of luxury and privacy. Its ambience harks back to the early twentieth century when safaris were conducted with grace and style. It lies in a private concession in the north-central part of the Kruger National Park.

Six magnificent tents, complete with teak floorboards, mosquito nets, romantic slipper baths, as well as outdoor showers, all have a superb view of the seasonal river and some to the Ngwenyeni dam. Each tent has a radio, hairdryer, ceiling fan, air-conditioning and personal safe. They are linked to the main lodge by raised timber walkways amongst ancient Jackalberry trees.

The main lodge comprises an open tented lounge and dining room on wooden decks. Nearby a secluded swimming pool and viewing deck offer ultimate privacy.

Named after Colonel Hamilton who was instrumental in establishing the Kruger National Park, Hamiltons Tented Safari Camp has a fine tradition of luxury in true 'Out of Africa' style. Open vehicle safari, walking safaris and even seasonal Mokoro trips along the Ngwenyeni watercourse are all on offer.

Rooms

Tented Suite

All 6 spacious luxury tents are decorated in true "Out of Africa" style with antique styled hip baths, outside showers and flowing mosquito nets. In addition, all have private wooden decks with views onto the river bed and Savannah grasslands beyond. Each tent is fitted with a radio, hairdryer, ceiling fan, air-conditioner, and personal safe.

Guests are accommodated in six exceptionally private luxury elevated tents overlooking the N’waswitsontso River. From your own private deck, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the bush that derives its existence from the river. Traditional fittings and features such as old brass light switches, steamer trunks with vintage labels revealing exciting journeys and sepia-stained photographs enhance the tradition and style of this ‘turn-of-the-century’ luxury safari tent; modern comforts such as electricity, air conditioning, and an outdoor shower the only clues that we live in a different time.

The décor is light and neutral; teak furniture and floors, gilded mirrors and crisp white linens deliver a classy luxury tent experience enhanced by the panoramic bush and river views that begin at the edge of the deck.

 

Great setting and food but not perfectly run

"Fabulous location, really lovely staff, mediocre young ranger who was very keen and friendly but we found him lacking in experience. And in a 5 star lodge the rangers should be top of their game. Housekeeping was badly needed in the rooms and we found the managements attention to my Nut Allergy was non existent. The meals were generally very good!"
