Kambaku owners Bryce & Nicola invite guests to experience the warmth & hospitality of their home Kambaku.
Kambaku Lodges are highly sought after by international guests because of their prime location within the highly acclaimed Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.
Being part of the world-renowned Kruger National Park, the Timbavati enjoys a wealth of incredible biodiversity of both Fauna and Flora as well as the amazing White Lions of the Timbavati. Kambaku offers guests an exceptional safari experience, either by open safari vehicles or by foot. Expect to enjoy intimate sightings of the Big 5, White Lions, Wild Dogs, Cheetah, Hippo, and Crocodile as well as a large variety of other general game and birds whilst taking in the breathtaking natural surrounds.
Both lodges although unique are ideally situated within the expanse that is the Greater Kruger National Park ensuring unparalleled game and bird viewing from the comfort of either camp. Accommodation options range from the fenced family Safari Lodge, to to the unfenced luxury of River Sands. Proudly eco-friendly, both lodges boast an impressive solar array for power supply.
Guests are invited to enjoy not only our luxurious accommodation and exceptional service but also enticed to take advantage of our relaxing spa & excellent gym facilities, prestigious sunken wine cellar, and a raised bird hide. These and many others aspects put owner run and lived Kambaku Lodges in a league of their own.
Kambaku Safari Lodge
Kambaku Safari lodge is exclusive yet affordable combining simple luxury, a high level of environmental consciousness, meticulous design and tasteful decoration to blend in with the charm and serenity of the natural surrounding bush.
This fully fenced family-friendly lodge has a feeling of relaxed intimacy where strangers meet and leave as friends.
Accommodating only 16 guests Kambaku Safari Lodge is perfectly suited to a romantic get away, small family gathering or bringing friends together in an idyllic environment.
Being entirely solar run and environmentally conscious we are continuously taking steps to decrease our impact on the pristine environment in which we find ourselves custodians.
Kambaku River Sands
Kambaku River Sands is beautifully positioned on the banks of an ephemeral riverbed.
Being totally unfenced, the camp invites animals to roam freely between the spaciously situated suites.
The main lodge features two enormous open fireplaces as well as a wraparound bar with infinity pool all overlooking the waterhole.
A well-stocked underground wine cellar allows for eye level game viewing through a large protective glass window.
Staying true to the intimacy that is Kambaku, River Sands caters for only sixteen guests.
Experience classic luxury and traditional Kambaku hospitality in a pristine setting.
It was our 'dreamholiday' in South-Africa , only for observing the BIG FIVE. We've spot them all, also many other beautiful animals and even a rare boa snake. Wauh! Five days in Kambaku River Sands were five days living in heaven! Everything was perfect, from arrive (16919) till depart (16923). We lived in our own 'bungalow' and every day the house was carefully cleaned. We looked over the River Sands and elephants with their babies , impalas, monkeys, warthogs etc. were walking beside and in front of us. Brunch, high tea and dinner were delicious! The game drives (two times a day) were exiting. In an big Landrover, led bij a professional guide with a lot of knowledge and experience and a spotter, looking for tracks and observing really everything, incredible! The whole 'crew' of this lodge was friendly, pampered us and had a good sense of humor. Thanks, thanks, thanks! There was only one problem: At the end of our trip we had to land, back on earth.., in Holland. But with beautiful memories, hundreds of fantastic pictures and of course the names of many members of the team, like Moses, Cordy, JJ, Akani, Norma, Johan and Louis. If you're looking for an unforgettable stay in the middle of the SA-jungle; go to KAMBAKU RIVER SANDS and enjoy!

What an amazing experience. You folks were spectacular in every possible detail and I can't wait to come back :), I'll get on Trip Advisor to share my experience very soon. The world should be aware of your fabulousness!!!
We had such a fabulous stay at Kambaku. Neil, Eric, and all of the staff were incredible and made us feel like we were part of a family during our stay. We only wish that we could have stayed longer! It was an incredible experience, and one that we will never forget, many thanks again!

Dear friends, the time spent with you was the highlight of our bush experience. The other place, although had the luxury, did not have the closeness that your great facility offers.
