FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: Experience the beauty of the Timbavati Game Reserve on a safari stay at Kambaku River Sands in Greater Kruger National Park. Enjoy luxury accommodations on an open safari property and head on two daily game drives to search for the Big Five and enjoy the beauty of the bush.

This 4-day South African vacation takes you to a luxury safari lodge on the outskirts of Greater Kruger National Park. It features first-class accommodations, shared tours, and is ideal for high-end travellers.

Your African safari connects you to Kambaku River Sands, located in Timbavati Private Game Reserve in the unspoiled nature of Greater Kruger National Park. This 4-star lodge personifies the freedom of the South African bush. Stay in one of 10 thatched luxury suites and enjoy the lodge grounds, which has no fences, allowing animals to move freely. During your three nights at Kambaku River Sands, you’ll head on morning and afternoon game drives in search of the Big Five, as well as wild dogs, antelope, and cheetahs. In between game drives, relax on the lodge grounds with a dip in the pool or mingle with other guests in the bar and enjoy the great sightlines of the bush.

Day 1

Arrive Timbavati Private Game Reserve

On arrival you will be met and transferred to your private game lodge where you will be made to feel extra welcome. Check in and time permitting, spend a few hours at leisure. This afternoon, depart on a safari drive in an open Land Rover with your game ranger. Your ranger is your host for the duration of your stay and he will take care of your every need whilst sharing his intimate knowledge of the wild. Sipping sundowners under an African sky somehow "finishes off" the whole day's experience.

    Kambaku River Sands is well situated in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, which makes up the western boarder of the Kruger National Park. Without fences inhibiting the free movement of game between the reserves, Timbavati becomes part of a vast unspoilt natural wilderness area that lies within the Greater Kruger National Park. Sitting majestically on the banks of a dry river bed, Kambaku River Sands entices the guest to sit back and relax. Guests at Kambaku River Sands are often afforded a safari experience with a difference from either their own private decks or the main lodge area, with almost daily up close and personal experiences with elephant, buffalo and bushbuck to name but a few.
