Magical Return Visit
"We were very happy to be able to return to Kambaku, which we first visited in 2018. We have been on numerous safaris in different countries, and Kambaku remains a favorite. The staff are friendly, professional, and full of good humor. We were spoiled by being the only guests for 3 nights, having a “private” experience. Our guide Palance and tracker Renius were brilliant! Tracking lions on foot an impressive sight… And a thrilling rhino encounter; can they ever run! Always a pleasure to be out in the bush , and we highly recommend Kambaku. Lovely rooms, great food and a really special place. Many thanks"
Most Amazing Experience
"We stayed at Kambaku Safari Lodge for two nights on our honeymoon, it was an amazing experience from the time we entered the reserve to the minute we left. Cordy, the manager greeted us and checked us in, explained our schedule for our stay and gave us a thorough and thoughtful tour of the breath-taking property. Every meal was incredible, the staff was kind and treated us like family, and the lodge & accommodations are so comfortable. I really truly couldn’t speak any more highly of Kambaku Safari Lodge"
A Piece of Heaven - Kambaku@Sea
"What a superb getaway. from the views, room, attention to detail and service, Tristyn and her team are an example. The cuisine was excellent too.... its the little things that make the difference between good and superb.... Kambaku @Sea is superb.... thank you for spoiling us!"
Cozy and Welcoming
"This my second safari and Kambaku Lodge is excellent - would always be top of my list to stay. Due to covid there were only 2 of us and we were treated with the same level of service as a full lodge. Cordy is the manager and she is detailed and caring. She made us feel at home. Our guide Gideon and tracker, Stanley, made sure every drive was interesting. The chef was outstanding. We were served truly gourmet meals throughout our stay. The accommodations that she made for gluten free diet were far a more than expected. The staff from cook to bartender etc were all wonderful."
1st Safari Ever
This was our first safari and we weren’t sure what to expect. Traveling from the US to SA was much easier than we expected. We went to another camp after in Botswana that we were more excited about on paper and honestly Kambaku River Sands blew it out of the water. Our game drives with Phani and Rifos did a wonderful job. We saw everything and more including a cobra with it’s hood up. The food was amazing and catered to our needs…we loved having a staff member eat dinner with us every night to tell us more about the camp, South Africa and their own personal lives and stories. The rooms were nicely done and had outdoor showers and AC . This is a camp to for sure check out if going to the Timbavati.
Bucket List Trip
"What an amazing experience. Was worried about traveling from the United States into South Africa, but everything went so smoothly. I could not have been happier with the lodge, staff, food, and safari! We were able to interact with most of the staff and had a great time listening to their stories. I cannot say enough about the food! We visited Cape Town and did another safari and I can honestly say the food and presentation at Kambaku was 5 star and outdid every other place. We were there for four days and made sure to take advantage of the safaris every morning and night. Never a dull moment! Overall, it really exceeded our expectations."
