The quality of Kings Camp is surprisingly high in view of its fairly reasonable price. We think it is a very good option for clients who are looking for a good safari experience without splashing out on the really expensive top-end lodges.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Kings Camp sits in the Timbavati Game Reserve overlooking a savannah plain.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The main area of camp comprises a relaxing lounge and dining room, bar, pool terrace and a large game-viewing deck overlooking an active waterhole where guests can watch animals come to drink.
The 11 private rooms are made of stone and thatch, with large windows and private verandas. They are elegantly decorated in a combination of colonial and contemporary African style with huge wooden sleigh beds, sisal carpeting, and hand-dyed fabrics. The bathrooms are also impressive, with a Victorian clawfoot bath, and both inside and outside shower.
This is a game-rich area where game-viewing is very good, with a wide range of animals including all of the Big Five and a fantastic variety of birds. Activities include morning and late afternoon game drives, as well as bush walks. There is a well-equipped gym for those wanting exercise, a swimming pool for those wishing to take a dip, and a selection of spa treatments for guests who would like to relax.
