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.
Kambaku’s Safari Lodge and River Sands form part of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve – a conservation area that borders the ubiquitous Kruger National Park. In 1993, the fences between these two areas were removed to encourage the natural migration of each park’s species. Today, this is part of what makes this region as ecologically rich as it is. Be guided by our expert team of game rangers as we welcome you into the world of Africa’s wildlife.
Kambaku @Sea is nestled between land and sea, in a biome that has become synonymous with the Knysna seahorse – the rarest species of its kind in the world. Our luxury suites are located in a region spanning 40 hectares of unspoilt vegetation. Here you will have the chance to spot bushbuck, honey badgers, otters and tortoises as well as over 270 bird species. This shoreline is brimming with life. We invite you to embark on a safari of the coastal kind.
