About Kings Camp
Kings Camp is situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve adjacent and open to the Kruger National Park. It is positioned on the edge of a savannah plain scattered with acacia trees, offering gracious hospitality in a unique romantic ambience. It invites guests to relax in fine colonial style.
The camp offers a choice of nine spacious Luxury Suites, two exquisite Honeymoon Suites and the Waterbuck Private Camp for ultimate privacy. Three meals are served daily and we offer two game drives per day with refreshments and optional walking safaris which are included in the rates.
The Waterbuck Private Camp offers the ultimate private safari experience and is ideal for a group of eight. This four-bedroom villa is fully equipped for self-catering and comes with its own Land Rover and game ranger, as well as a personal butler and chef to take care of your every need. This camp is situated on the banks of the dry Nhlaralumi River and offers great views of the bush with excellent game viewing opportunities.
Guest can enjoy their meals in the dining room which offers stunning views of the bushveld. Relax in the comfortable lounge, enjoy a drink in the bar or cool off in the swimming pool and relax around the traditional boma at night to watch the millions of stars while listening to the sounds of the game reserve. Souvenirs can also be bought at the curio shop.
Safari: The reserve is a wildlife haven which boasts a diversity of animal life including the Big 5 and the famous white lions. Go on morning or afternoon game drives, a walking safari with a knowledgeable ranger, or a hot air balloon flight at sunrise.
Spa: Succumb to the peace and tranquility of the African bush while indulging in some relaxing pampering. Treat yourself to an array of treatments – from body, skin and beauty rituals to rejuvenating massages.
Wedding Venues: At Kings Camp, your wedding ceremony will become a subtle stroke of Colonial grace and charm. Each wedding takes place in a dry riverbed sculptured by the Nhlaralumi River, surrounded by African bushveld.
