Charm & romance
Kings Camp is an elegant central Timbavati thatched lodge designed to reflect the charm and romance of a bygone era in a pristine corner of unspoilt Africa. It faces an open savanna plain with a waterhole, which is frequented by a wide variety of wildlife both day and night.
Timbavati mega herds
The area is known for herds of elephant and buffalo in particular amongst its Big Five, and is also home to the famous white lions. With 100 km² of bush to traverse, you have plenty of space to explore the endless variety of Africa’s wildlife in an open Land Rover or on foot.
Traversing is varied, over mopane woodlands, thornveld on gabbro, and the rugged veld of the Olifants river in the north.
All day drives
Unusually here, you can secure a private vehicle and spend the entire day on drive, stopping when and where you want. This is perfect for bird spotting and great for avid photographers.
Walks through the bush take place after breakfast. Your knowledgeable ranger guides you through the the smaller aspects of the bush, fauna and flora, and the “finer” aspects of the bushveld.
Seven spacious luxury suites, an inter-connected two-bedroom family suite, and two exquisite Honeymoon suites have lounges, air-conditioning, heating, en-suite Victorian ball-and-claw baths, indoor and outdoor double showers, fully stocked mini-bars and private verandahs with hammocks to enjoy the view.
Each Honeymoon Suite has a large plunge pool overlooking the African bush.
A thatched viewing deck overlooks the active waterhole, with an open-plan lounge and bar. There is a library and fully equipped gym.
A swimming pool is situated a short distance from the main area directly overlooking the waterhole. Equipped with loungers, it is perfect for relaxation in the heat of the day.
Dining & wine
The spacious dining room offers stunning views of the bushveld, while enjoying sumptuous meals. Cuisine is of the highest standard. There is an excellent cellar of South African wines.
