A Five-star Safari fit for a King
@ Kings Camp Private Game Reserve
The Timbavati is home to several lodges and camps that offer guests a unique and relaxing escape. Kings Camp Private Game Reserve is one such camp that invites you to unwind while you "unlock the beauty of the Timbavati". The camp faces an open savanna plain with a waterhole that attracts a multitude of wildlife throughout the day (and night). You can explore the wilderness of the Timbavati through a number of choice experiences at Kings Camp.
Kings Camp’s accommodation is made up of 6 Luxury Suites, 1 Luxury Family Suite, and 2 Honeymoon Suites.
Our suites boast sophisticated decor, mosquito-net-strewn beds and exquisite en-suite bathrooms. The Luxury Suites offer magnificent views of the African bush from their private verandah with plunge pool and comfortable outdoor sunken lounge with fire pit.
