Kambaku Safari Lodge is located in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, which is settled within the Greater Kruger National Park. The 8 spacious thatched chalets overlook a private waterhole and provide guests with a rustic comfort between their game viewings. The property features scrumptous bush cuisine in a relaxed setting that combines simple luxuries with a high level of environmental consciousness.
The main lodge has a balance between open plan and private space, with a spacious bar and lounge area leading to the mezzanine floor where one can take time out reading – there is a small library available – or just simply dream away in tranquil surroundings. From the upper deck, one can enjoy board games, card games or a game of pool, whilst keeping a watchful eye on the waterhole. The main area has a soaring thatch roof which catches the breeze in summer and creates a lovely feeling of openness. A large fireplace in the lounge area adds to the warmth and ambience in the winter evenings. The lodge also has a Wi-Fi area and mobile phone coverage for those who need to keep in touch with the outside world. Furnishings are comfortable and cosy, inviting you to put your feet up and relax.
The eight thatched rooms at Kambaku accommodate just sixteen guests and offer a variety of options ranging from the honeymoon suite, family suites to double and twin rooms, depending on specific requirements. The honeymoon suite ensures additional privacy and a touch of something a little out of the ordinary. These well appointed suites feature Colonial four poster beds draped with crisp white linens and mosquito netting and en-suite bathroom with separate showers and baths. This eco-friendly camp is entirely dependent on solar energy minimizing our carbon footprint on the natural environment. With this in mind, each room is equipped with soft lighting, overhead fans and although electricity is at a minimum, there are 220V power points to charge batteries and other devices. Each room also has its own veranda where guests can relax in comfort and view the gardens and waterhole.
Leisurely brunches are served on the veranda or around the pool, and guests are often entertained by the resident warthog family on the lawn. A great place to while away the heat of the day, is on the sundeck with a cocktail in hand, or enjoy a cooling dip in the pool. Dinners are a truly African affair, lighted by the milky way, a large bonfire, and lanterns in the Boma. This is just one of several different locations to spoil yourself with fine wine and bush cuisine while listening to the night calls, fireside bush stories or a guided talk through the stars.
Aside from morning and afternoon game drives, this property features a pool and sundeck to unwind while enjoying cocktails. Special day trip to local attractions in the area are available on request, additional fees may apply.
As we are a children friendly lodge, we cater for child friendly game drives and walks, as well as educational games and discussions to keep the little ones busy during their stay. Guest requirements are predetermined and special eating times / types of food are catered for. Where possible, we try and place families with young children on a separate vehicle due to the flexibility needed and so that neither the family, or other guest’s experience is sacrificed. Baby sitting service is also an optional extra.
