Itinerary

Day 1 - 3: Timbavati Private Game Reserve

Accommodation: Kings Camp

Today you will embark on your safari adventure as you fly from OR Tambo International Airport to Kings Camp. Located within the Timbavati Game Reserve, on the unfenced western boundary of the Kruger National Park, you are now in classic Big 5 territory.

The next two days will reveal to you a pristine landscape of prolific wildlife. Being a private reserve means you will enjoy exclusive activities such as off-road game drives, spot-lit night drives, and guided bush walks that are sure to heighten your senses. Walking through the bush is a rewarding experience as you keep an eye out for diminutive ant-lions, elephant shrews, rhinoceros beetles, buffalo weavers, and black-and-yellow-spotted leopard tortoises

Other exciting experiences during your stay at Kings Camp include bush dining under a canopy of stars and sundowners in the African bush. 

Day 4 - 5: Makuleke Contractual Park

Accommodation: The Outpost

After a final morning game drive in the Timbavati Game Reserve, you will collect your belongings and transfer to the lodge airstrip for your short flight to Punda Maria airstrip. You will be met by the friendly staff of The Outpost and transferred to the lodge for check-in. 

During your time at The Outpost enjoy early morning and late afternoon game drives, as well as exciting walking safaris in what is arguably one of the most scenically beautiful and diverse wilderness areas in the Kruger National Park. 

While the game is plentiful and includes the big 5; one is most likely to encounter nyala, buffalo, bushbuck in the riverine areas and white rhino. The area is famous for its elephant and buffalo herds in the winter months when they come to drink from the Luvuvhu river.

The Outpost offers various dining options with firm favorites being a picnic out on safari and meals under baobabs or on the river bank. 

Day 6: Depart Makuleke Contractual Park

A morning game drive followed by breakfast is a perfect ending to your extraordinary Kruger Park safari adventure. You will transfer back to the airstrip for your flight to Phalaborwa Airport where you will connect with your onward travel arrangements.

Reviews

"All you possibly can ask for. Way above any expectations. Fantastic staff, wounderful environment, supergood food, everything was clean and luxiourius. I want to move to Kings Camp forever. BIG FIVE - HIGH FIVE"

"This review is long overdue, probably because it's hard to put our magical wedding weekend into words. We got married in a lime green fevered cathedral to the chimes of gorgeous bush shrikes and screeches of hornbills, and where we were showered with a continuous confetti of butterflies! As a bird- and bush-loving architect, The Outpost comes close to my idea of perfection. Aaron, in your quiet way you made sure everything was as smooth and relaxed as possible. Nothing was too much trouble - you even fixed my sister's sump without drama (or expense!). Beatrice, you went the extra mile by doing beautiful table decorations and by baking that gorgeous chocolate cake that people are still talking about! It's clear to us that your direction, attention to detail and natural flair for food are evident in what comes out of the kitchen. Cara, Alweet and Sarah, you took us to all the best spots and impressed us all with your knowledge. To all the wonderful staff (Winnie, Langu, etcetera), you blessed us with your love and warmth Thank you - we look forward to returning in the not too distant future!"

"King's Camp is the experience of a lifetime. From the extensive two a day game drives, to the very good meals, to the friendly and genuine staff, to the superb maid service, to the pristine surroundings it's all you can hope for and more. My wife and I were able to see the Big Five and more through the perseverance of the rangers and trackers. My special mention goes to Martin and Albert, and Cynet and Sam. These guys went above and beyond and were a wealth of information for not just the animals but plant life and birds as well. A special mention has to go to Manager Warren who runs a five start operation but comes across as your friend just wanting to help you have the best time possible. If you want to see animals in the wild and at the same time get some context of their lives and their surroundings this is the place. I wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend King's Camp to everyone. You will meet some memorable people, have some experiences of a lifetime and always, always wish you could go back. If this sounds like a gushing review, it's meant to."
