Kambaku Safari Lodge
Kambaku is a genuine South African family run safari lodge with warm and friendly service and all the comforts for a perfect stay. The game lodge is situated in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve next to the Kruger National Park.`
Kambaku is a wonderful safari lodge that welcomes its guests as friends and you leave as part of the family. Ideal
for families and small groups, Kambaku is small and very intimate. The rooms are close together and close to the main house and pool. There is a lovely garden and beautiful views of the waterhole and plains. Often animals will visit the waterhole for a drink and where it not for the electric fence you might have an unexpected visitor at your table.
“We have always had the most amazing safari experiences, the game rangers at Kambaku are the best in the business"
Safari at Kambaku
The main lounge has a bar and small dining room that opens onto the veranda, from here you can see right down to the waterhole at the end of the garden. Upstairs there is a second smaller lounge and wooden deck, a wonderful spot to have an evening drink whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings. As the lodge is run on a generator there is limited electricity and at night Kambaku is lit up with paraffin lamps creating a magical and romantic setting.
Kambaku is about family and friendly service so the atmosphere is laid back and relaxed, guests are also welcome to visit the eco-friendly staff village adjacent to the lodge. Robyn and Ken who manage the lodge are wonderful and the rangers and trackers take every care to make sure that guests get a fantastic game drive
There are 8 Chalets, comfortable and spacious with thatched roofs, high ceilings and a mix of traditional African décor with modern soft tones to keep with the style of Kambaku. All the rooms have big comfortable four poster beds with mosquito nets and ceiling fans for the summer. The bathrooms are lovely with separate bath and shower.
Kambaku allows its jeeps to drive off-road enabling guests to get very close to the animals. Children are welcome at Kambaku, and are allowed on game drives depending on their maturity and at management discretion. If the child is too young a babysitter is at the lodge to look after them. There is a lovely swimming pool where guest can relax between game drives.
