Kambaku Safari Lodge – Kambaku Safari Lodge began with a simple idea: that our most memorable moments are those we share with others.
When we eat together, laugh together – when we travel together, we create the kind of experiences that we’ll reflect on and call “the good times.” Kambaku Safari Lodge is a place designed for those good times.
They believe that safaris should be family adventures. Our children’s programme is aimed at educating and entertaining young minds. Children jump at the opportunity to become certified junior rangers by the end of their stay – a worthy accomplishment for the future custodians of our precious wildlife.
Kambaku River Sands – We’ve created an experience that will give you all the space and time you need to pause, breathe in and reconnect with the here and now. Our rooms and bathrooms are designed to create an atmosphere of blissful solitude. Glass-encased spaces invite the outside in as you immerse yourself in the vastness of the surrounding nature.
The beauty of the Timbavati Game Reserve is unfenced and open, waiting to be discovered. Kambaku River Sands is a place of sanctuary for Africa’s Big 5: the leopard, lion, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo and more. Our game rangers are seasoned experts and will furnish you with all the information you need as you encounter indigenous wildlife thriving in their natural habitat. Their home will become yours.
Africa’s unique wildlife represents a large part of what makes this continent so distinct as a destination characterised by biodiversity and natural abundance. Our accommodation options provide unmatched vantage points for appreciating the Big Five as well as rare bird and mammal species that are indigenous to each region. We invite you to walk the same paths as these majestic animals and explore the natural environment they call home. Experience a part of the world like no other.
Set out on foot into the African wild and enjoy an intimate encounter with the indigenous beauty of the bushveld. It’s the perfect way to immerse yourself in the richness of the savannah. Sample wild fruits as you hone your skills as a forager. Learn the art of recognising different types of dung. Notice both ant and elephant. An experienced and knowledgeable game ranger will ensure that you get the most out of this riveting experience.
Space. And time. These two concepts frame how we see the world. And yet for most of us, daily life only allows for space and time in finite amounts. Now for a new perspective.
At Kambaku, we’ve created an experience that will give you all the space and time you need to pause, breathe in and reconnect with the here and now. Our rooms and bathrooms are designed to create an atmosphere of blissful solitude. Glass-encased spaces invite the outside in as you immerse yourself in the vastness of the surrounding nature.
