Kambaku River Sands has received international acclaim for being one of the most frequented safari lodges in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.
Sitting majestically on the banks of a dry river bed, Kambaku River Sands entices the guest to sit back and relax. Kambaku (Solitary Bull elephant), takes its name from one of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ tuskers who roamed the Kruger Park for the greater part of the last century. These elephant were renowned for their impressive tusks – having at least one tusk with the estimated weight of over 60kg.
This unfenced camp is perfectly situated on a perennial river with continuous free flowing movement of game both big and small through the camp.
Guests at Kambaku River Sands are often afforded a safari experience with a difference from either their own private decks or the main lodge area, with almost daily up close and personal experiences with elephant, buffalo and bushbuck to name but a few.
The main lodge has a spacious lounge with two enormous open fireplaces for the cool winter nights. The bar allows for guests to watch elephants drinking out of the swimming pool while enjoying a cold beer or chilled glass of wine.
All 10 suites are elegantly decorated, and boast private viewing decks with spectacular views of either the dry River bed or the surrounding bush. All sliding doors are protected with mosquito netting and beds draped with classic white satin nets. Sit back and indulge in the elegance of your suite. Room facilities include a mini bar, butlers tray as well as a variety of guest amenities, outdoor shower and air conditioning.
With its high thatched roof overlooking the Kambaku River Sands waterhole. The spacious surroundings of the Main lodge allow for guests luxurious comfort of the lounge, Kambaku River Sands boasts uncapped WIFI in our Main Lodge area.
Being unfenced, the camp allows for free movement of game through the lodge. Game drives provide the ideal opportunity to track down the Big 5 and more. We offer bush walks with the space to explore the smaller gems of the bush, and the time in camp during the heat of the day, to observe relaxed animal behaviour from the peace and quiet of your own personal deck.
Game drives are in an uncovered vehicle - allowing for excellent photographic opportunities, with experienced rangers passionate about the bush.
