From game lodges near the Kruger National Park, to Garden Route accommodation that will win your heart forever, the Kambaku Lodge family has a little something for everyone. If you’re wondering what the Kambaku difference really is- and which of our gorgeous locales would be best for you- then today’s blog is exactly what you’re looking for.

The birth of a dream: Kambaku Safari Lodge

This is where it all began. The flagship of the proud Kambaku name is Kambaku Safari Lodge, a haven of wildlife, adventure and whole-family fun. With the heart of a traditional Kruger Park Game Lodge, the soul of the bush, and the backdrop of the spectacular Timbavati game reserve, this is the true African safari experience of your dreams.

The heart of Kambaku Safari Lodge lies in the bush, under the bright, open skies. You’ll keep your days packed with exciting safari activities- traditional game drives, photo safaris, and walking safaris. 4-poster beds swathed in mosquito nets evoke a typical safari atmosphere, while an overhead fan keeps the air moving no matter the heat. Hop onto the private viewing veranda when you’re in your room, and watch the bush come to life around you. Laze around the pool during the afternoon, or play a game of snooker. The kids can keep themselves fully entertained (and immersed in the experience) through our exciting kids’ program. There’s also a spa and gym facilities for patrons to focus on rejuvenating themselves.

From genuine safari ambience to mod cons and new friends- happiness is a place, and that place is Kambaku Safari Lodge

Space and time: Kambaku River Sands

Another of our game lodges in the Timbavati, Kambaku River Sands is the home of the reborn you. If you’re feeling rushed, harried and unable to decompress from the cares and strife of daily life, here is the perfect destination.

The experience of Kambaku River Sands gives you space and time. Pause, breathe and reconnect. Blissful solitude, peace and tranquillity surround you. Cheering sunlight streams through glass-encased spaces. Nature is calling you home! Let her soothe your cares away.

Kambaku River Sands carries the same sense of adventure and the same authentic African safari feel, but here the focus is on unwinding from the grind. You’ve come home to the land of the ‘cradle of mankind’, and Africa will nourish your soul. The staggering beauty of the Timbavati still beckons. Explore the bush, watch birds frolic from the bird hide, experience real safaris, spot the Big 5, and watch wildlife thrive. Wash the day’s cares away in indoor or outdoor showers while birds sing around you. The 8 luxury thatched chalets mean the area is quiet and peaceful, with no hustle and bustle around you.
Wash your cares away in the infinity pool, enjoy specialist wine tastings in the sunken wine cellar, or make new friends at the wrap-around bar. Allow our skilled spa team to help you decompress from the pace of life outside the lodge, or hit the gym to stay active.

As night falls, the experience continues to nourish your mind and body. World-class cuisine can be enjoyed al-fresco, or head to the riverbed and enjoy the campfires calling the stars home. This is an all-inclusive five-star experience- arrive expectant, but leave enchanted.
