Kambaku River Sands
About Kambaku River Sands
Kambaku River Sands is well situated in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, which makes up the western border of the Kruger National Park.
Without fences inhibiting the free movement of game between the reserves, Timbavati becomes part of a vast unspoilt natural wilderness that lies within the Greater Kruger National Park.
Kambaku, 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.
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, up close and personal experiences with elephant, buffalo and bushbuck are almost daily.
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 four-legged regulars.
Co-owner Bryce has added his experience and special flair for wilderness cooking to the scrumptious bush cuisine offered. Delicious meals in the relaxed and elegant setting of the lodge become memorable occasions, where good food is enhanced by good company.
Sitting majestically on the banks of a dry river bed, Kambaku River Sands entices the guest to sit back and relax.
