Within the Timbavati Private Game Reserve that flanks the world renowed Kruger National Park, you’ll find Kings Camp. Eleven luxury suites, each having their own private deck, are styled with the colonial elegance of a bygone era. The camp overlooks a watering hole in the midst of the wild, African bushveld and is ideal for game spotting. In addition to the animals – such as elephant, lion, buffalo, giraffe and zebra – that come to quench their thirst at the waterhole, the vegetation is home to 250 species of birds. Miles of unspoilt wilderness surround the camp, providing peaceful seclusion.
Mosquito nets drape the beds, creating a romantic mood. Simple and elegant, the spacious rooms are air-conditioned to ward off the heat. Boasting both indoor and outdoor showers, they promise an authentically African experience with a touch of opulence. The main camp area offers a comfortable lounge and bar where guests can unwind and take in the sounds of nature. A library provides a quiet area where guests can catch up on their reading and shaded sun loungers invite visitors to relax around the swimming pool.
The day kicks off with an early morning game drive when the animals and birdlife are most active. Warm beverages and traditional rusks keep the hunger at bay until breakfast is served back at the camp. The rest of the day is dedicated to leisure or a walking safari to explore the wilderness up-close. For those who hanker after total relaxation, a visit to the Therapy Lapa will rejuvenate and revitalize. In the late afternoon, guests set out for another game drive which spills over into nightfall, giving them the opportunity to spot nocturnal animal life.
Mealtimes take place under the stars, around a campfire in the boma. Coupled with fine wines, delicious cuisine is served. With a little prior notice, the kitchen will be more than happy to accommodate special dietary needs.
To round off the experience of Kings Camp, the staff give special attention to details both big and small. Providing warm hospitality, Kings Camp offers the perfect mix of tranquility and adventure.
