Kambaku River Sands
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.
Our wine cellar stocked with a selection of South Africa’s best, is ideally positioned to view the waterhole and all the daily four legged regulars.
Co-owner Bryce has added his experience and special flair for wilderness cooking to the scrumptious bush cuisine offered by KAMBAKU and delicious meals in the relaxed and elegant setting of the lodge become memorable occasions where good food is enhanced by good company.
Timbavati is home not only to the Big 5 but also to the famous White Lions of the Timbavati, which cannot be seen anywhere else in the wild. Kambaku is most privileged to be able to afford their guests the best opportunity of viewing the magnificent creatures with both properties falling within the white lion prides territory.
As with Kambaku Safari Lodge the owners Bryce and Nicola have made it their mission to offer a personal guided wildlife experience that endeavours to provide visitors with an up-close -and-personal experience and interaction with the bush and its inhabitants.
Our mission is to provide an unforgettable wildlife experience in a magical environment, so that the legends indeed do linger on in the memory of the guest.
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
