Located in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Kambaku River Sands features game drives and bush walks.
Kambaku Lodge is located in the heart of Timbavati Nature Reserve and has a waterhole which attracts members of the Big 5. Each of the rooms and chalets feature African décor and a private patio. I was delighted to see that the small number of guest each had their own bungalow. The bedroom and bath areas were larger than I expected and there are plenty of common areas so people can be private or talk among the other guest. The staff was very friendly and desiring to accommodate. Most of all is the quality of the Safari and the animals that roam the property. The guide was very knowledgeable and always concerned for our safety. I highly recommend this property for you safari.

Timbavati and Sabi Sands are the two biggest consortiums of private land holdings adjacent to Kruger National Park, and thus have large land bases to explore, although there are varying alliances and land bases within each reserve, depending on the lodge. We stayed at Kambaku Lodge and it had access to tens of thousands of acres for game viewing, including some of its own land. When booking a specific lodge (there are many) inquire about the area they have rights to view. Size matters and increases the odds of sightings. Animals can roam freely between Kruger and Timbavati, the major difference being you have to stay on the main roads in Kruger, and find critters yourself, whereas the private lodges go just about anywhere they can drive, including through the brush, and experienced rangers and trackers know how to find the animals. Pricey but sooo worth it.
Its my second trip to Timbavati and I returned because I loved it. It's impossible not to. All the big 5 are in abundance except for the male lion. He is tough to spot. We saw leopards again and again, female lions, rhinos, elephants, hyenas, hippos and a herd of 600 buffalo. Truly amazing!
