Nestled in the heart of the world renowned Timbavati Private Nature Reserve part of the Greater Kruger National Park, lies Kambaku Safari Lodge. The Lodge provides exclusive yet affordable accommodation that is meticulously designed.


  • Enjoy romantic dinners in the crisp, evening air of the Timbavati; the boma surrounded by the sounds of nocturnal park inhabitants awakening and calling out to each other.
  • For the more adventurous, a close up encounter with the diverse bush of the area is available via the guided bush walk.

You should know

  • Children of all ages are welcomed at Kambaku, but from twelve years and younger pay half the adult rate, sharing with parents or in a family suite.

The details

As the greater reserve drifts into focus, a spattering of charming thatch roofed cottages draw the eye to the rustic and beautiful Kambaku Safari Lodge. Well situated and recently renovated, Kambaku is a cozy holiday lodge with family-friendly facilities, perfect for an intimate stay in this beautiful park.

Kambaku Safari Lodge accommodation consists of eight thatched chalets, complete with en-suite bathrooms, four poster beds and mosquito net draping, lanterns for light and 220 volt power points, overhead fans, and gas geysers.

Guests to Kambaku Safari Lodge can indulge in exciting morning and evening game drives, in open Land Rovers, out into the rough and untamed bush of the Limpopo Province bushveld. These drives are conducted and guided by a team of informative and experienced guides, all of whom are eager to answer questions and make the experience as complete and authentic as possible.

Facilities at Kambaku include a restaurant, swimming pool, laundry services, internet connectivity, and disabled access.

This is a wonderful get away from the busy life, a place where the service is personal and professional and the individual rooms are strategically laid out around a water hole visited frequently by animals, birds etc. Serene and quite enough to totally relax. The Safari drives were comfortable and exciting with a delightful snack break part way through. The staff were all outstanding and we will definately recommend it to family and friends.
Kambaku lodge in Timbavati is great ! Driving to the lodge is already an experience! We saw impalas, buffalos, giraffes, elephants, etc. on the way to the lodge.The lodge is very cute and the staff is very friendly, nice and welcoming.We had an amazing experience and it is worth going.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
