A snapshot of a Kambaku day: fun under the sun in Timbavati Private Game Reserve

Kambaku, as one of the premier game lodges in the Timbavati, offers you a day packed full of fun, adventure and memories that will last a lifetime. Visitors young and old can expect the wildlife experience of a lifetime and so much more. There’s tons to explore and do on the reserve, so much that you may struggle to decide what to do first! Here’s a quick peek at the just some of the wonders awaiting you in a day at Kambaku Lodge.

Rise with the birds for the best safari viewing opportunities

It’s an early rise for you if you want to capture the very best wildlife experiences. Don’t worry- the crisp dawn air, redolent with the first songs of waking birds, will make it all worthwhile. Sip a cup of coffee or cocoa and allow the sounds of the bush to envelop your heart. Mornings are superlative game viewing times, as you’ll catch nocturnal predators replete after a night’s hunting as well as day-loving critters. Your guide will help you have the very best possible viewing experience. For safari lodges in the Greater Kruger Park area, that means an unparalleled chance to spot rare wildlife like the African wild dog and aardvark, as well as the Big 5 and even a chance to see an ultra-rare white lion! You’ll finish off the experience with a scrumptious brunch, cooked specially by our kitchen team.

Enjoy your day your way

Your afternoon is yours to enjoy, whether that’s relaxing at the pool, exploring the Timbavati reserve area, or heading back into the bush. We are proud to offer visitors a once-in-a-lifetime chance for an intimate encounter with the indigenous bush. Set out on foot with one of our skilled trackers, and immerse yourself in the beauty of the bushveld. Learn to ‘read’ spoor and animal dung, sample wild fruits fresh from the tree, and meet all that Africa has to offer up-close-and-personal. From the tiniest ant to the largest elephant, Africa is waiting to meet you.

No safari experience at Kambaku would be complete, however, without the perfect picture (or 10). Share the magic of the bush with friends back home, and opt-in for our photographic safaris. Immortalize your experiences with the help of our professional guides, who are fully trained in the art of wildlife photography too. Learn tips and tricks that will help you take the perfect shot, and embrace Africa on her terms as you go. The wilds of Africa lie before you, waiting for your camera to capture them.

Embrace Africa as night falls

Late afternoon will see everyone gather for their next game drive. Still replete from our sumptuous high tea, you’ll head out again for another incomparable chance to spot wildlife. As the sun slowly sinks behind the endless horizon, raise a glass to a day well spent, and tuck into the drinks and snacks on offer. Listen to the forlorn cries of the night birds and rustling of nocturnal stirrings as you make your way back to camp, and embrace another opportunity to spot shy night animals going about their business. The guide will illuminate the glint of the eyes surrounding you as the bush lulls you towards rest. Dine outdoors under the stars (or head inside to our cosy restaurant if it’s inclement) and reminisce about the day’s grand adventures with new friends. Don’t forget to head to bed early- another action-packed day awaits tomorrow!

Every day is an adventure here at Kambaku Lodge. Although we’re one of the premier safari lodges in the Greater Kruger National Park, we pride ourselves on offering every guest a personalised experience you’ll remember for years to come. Why not experience the Kambaku difference today?
