  • 8 Comfortable Luxury Chalets
  • Timbavati Private Nature Reserve
  • True african big five safari
  • Award winning & excellent rated

Kambaku Safari Lodge is situated in one of the only areas in Africa where the majestic White Lion can be found. This alone makes it a very worthwhile and unique setting, promising any guest an adventure never to be forgotten.

Located in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, also known for fantastic Big 5 game viewing, the relaxed and casual atmosphere makes the lodge suitable for families. Traditionally set around the camp waterhole guests can view the arrival of thirsty animals from the pool or upper deck, or simply from one’s own private veranda.

The resident on-site Warthog family makes for great entertainment, leaving every guest with a giggle and a smile. Children visiting Kambaku thrive on their exclusive child friendly game drives and on-site bush walks.

After so much adventure, waterhole sightings and cooling down at the pool, dinner next to a large crackling fire brings days under the African sky to a perfect tranquil end as the stars come out to dazzle guests to sleep.

The lodge is proudly Green, powered entirely by solar energy. With only eight chalets, the experience at Kambaku Safari Lodge is a truly intimate affair.

A cosy fireplace, small library and bar are open for all to enjoy at the main lodge. The upper deck features a pool table as well as a games corner. For a little ‘me-time’ a complimentary transfer is offered to River Sands for relaxing at the spa or use of the gym facility.

The 4 King and 2 Twin Chalets have their own deck, ideal from which to view wildlife drinking at the waterhole as the sky turns warm crimson hues.

    Hot coffee awaits those who opt in on an early morning game drive. The African Big 5 and famous White Lion wait to be spotted in the wild in open safari vehicles. Expert rangers assist in tracking the sightings for you, and if you just couldn’t manage the early morning, an evening game drive is on the charts to, just after you enjoyed an afternoon high tea.

    The lodge also offers guided 3 hour informative bush walks, bird watching from the Hide, and unique photographic and art safaris.

    The kids also have an array of exciting activities to choose from. They get the opportunity to be a Junior Ranger for a day, learning about the wild and how to track animals. Frogging, birding and jewellery making all form part of the fun, and at departure your Junior Ranger will receive a certificate to acknowledge their achievements.
