Timbavati claims to be home to the highest density of lion in South Africa. The reserve is also rich in birdlife, with approximately 400 species either resident or migrating to the area in summer.

“Amazing”

Dumberlina,

Sydney, Australia

From the moment we arrived all the staff went above and beyond for us especially Ryno our tour guide for the 3 days. He is so knowledgeable, friendly and good fun. Eric our tracker was also unbelievable. The set up is really homely with all guests sharing communal breakfast and dinner which normally wouldn't be my bag but it seemed really genuine. The rooms were lovely and attention to detail was cool with a mosquito net turn down service every afternoon.

KAMBAKU SAFARI LODGE

Wow Wee - what a wonderful place. The welcome, the staff, the Rangers and Trackers, the food, the drives, not so keen on the early starts but it is so worth it! We all had a fantastic time on each and every drive, we laughed, learned lots about the animals big and small, plus tried a few dodgy fruits and held a dung beetle - random and amazing! Brunches and dinners were spent on communal tables with fellow guests who were all as awestruck as us at the sheer beauty of the whole experience. Thank you so much, we will return!

“Unforgettable experience”

We spent three nights at this fantastic lodge. We are a family of six with kids and we all absolutely loved our stay. The welcoming when we arrived was amazing and very personal and the high level of service from all the staff members remained the same throughout our stay. The rooms were beautiful, authentic and spacious and we didn't miss anything. The safaris were of course the highlight. We got to see all the animals we had longed for and the Big Five were covered quickly. Can't wait to come back! Go here and you won't go home disappointed.

Our family of four adults stayed at Kambaku Safari Lodge for 3 nights and had the experience of a lifetime! The staff at the lodge are all amazing; the women in the kitchen are incredible chefs and were unbelievably accommodating to our dietary needs; The accommodations are rustic but very cozy. Easily accessible from the Hoedspruit airport via an arranged driver. We saw and experienced so much wildlife. The meals were all varied and delicious. As our title says, we did not want to leave and certainly hope to return sometime in the future. Go to Kambaku.
