Kings Camp

In the unspoilt Timbavati Private Reserve which shares an unfenced boundary with Kruger National Park, Kings Camp faces a wide open savanna plain with a waterhole visited by an endless parade of wildlife. Surrounding this classic luxury safari lodge is 100 square kilometres of terrain exclusive to guests, ensuring that every animal encounter is a personal experience.

There are just 6 generously sized guest suites at Kings Camp plus an expansive Family Suite and two secluded Honeymoon Suites. Romantic canopied beds, claw-footed tubs and elegant wooden furniture recall an earlier, more glamorous era, whilst there are plenty of modern luxuries on hand such as air-conditioning, espresso machines, indoor and outdoor showers. Honeymoon Suites also boast personal plunge pools.

In the thatched main lodge you’ll find a magnificent dining room, lounge and library. There is also a traditional open-air ‘boma’ here to atmospheric fire-lit dinners and a large terrace which overlooks a waterhole. When you aren’t busy with gameviewing activities, visit the gym, splash in the pool or enjoy a massage at the day spa. Staff at Kings Camp can also arrange hot air ballooning and helicopter scenic flights over the landscape

South Africa Overview

Why travel to South Africa: Described as “a world in one country” South Africa is more than just a safari destination. The wildlife of Kruger and the many private reserves throughout the country are complemented by South Africa’s fascinating history and diverse cultures, the beautiful coastline and majestic landscapes of the Cape.

When is the best time to view animals in South Africa? Gameviewing is best during the dry season (May-Oct); however the summer months are good for general touring and sightseeing.

What is the culture of South Africa? Many different cultures including Zulu, Swazi, Xhosa, Indian, Cape Malay and European. A unique cuisine, as well as distinct music and dance. Elegant Cape Dutch architecture.

What is the climate in South Africa? The inland plateau has a temperate climate (17°-30°C), whilst the coast is subtropical and more humid (22°-30°C). The seasons are the same as Australia, however most of the rain falls in summer. Winters are dry and sunny, but nights can be very cold. The Western Cape is the exception, with a “Mediterranean” climate – cool, wet winters and warm dry summers (17°-24°C).

What can I combine South Africa with?South Africa is easily combined with neighbouring Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique, Zambia or the nearby tropical island of Mauritius. Johannesburg is a very popular gateway to most of southern and eastern Africa.

How to get to South Africa?Many major airlines including South African Airways, Qantas, Etihad, Emirates, Kenya Airways, Qatar, Singapore Airways and British Airways fly into Johannesburg. There are also many regional airlines such as Air Botswana, and domestic carriers that service local cities such as Cape Town and the Kruger National Park area.
