Overview of Kambaku River Sands

Kambaku River Sands is a 5-star safari getaway that promises you an exclusive and intimate retreat into the untamed wilderness of South Africa’s natural splendour. As the only camp that traverses both the unfenced Timbavati Game Reserve and Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, it covers 12,000 hectares of Big 5 territory. Experience close encounters with a medley of wildlife, including safari staples such as antelopes and a kaleidoscope of birdlife, as well as the rare white lion.

The camp exudes luxury and opulence with its tastefully designed and air-conditioned suites. Your home-away-from-home can be found dotted along the riverbank and cocooned under the protection of a canopy of Leadwood and Jackalberry trees. Enjoy the serene ambiance at this world-class establishment, surrounded by the echoes of Africa’s wilderness.

A structured daily program offers you an abundance of wilderness expeditions to enjoy. Begin each day with an early morning game drive and awaken with the wilderness under the warming glow of the African sun. Afternoons invite relaxation with soothing spa treatments and elegant high teas, while evenings conclude with sumptuous dinners under a blanket of stars.
