Kambaku River Sands is located on the banks of a dry riverbed in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve on the western border of the Kruger National Park in South Africa’s Limpopo province. The lodge is unfenced and allows for game like elephant, buffalo and bushbuck, to roam freely, making it an ideal game viewing spot. Both animal lovers and birding enthusiasts can experience nature first-hand here while staying in deluxe suites. This safari lodge is elegantly decorated with authentic African furniture in neutral colours and guests can relax in the spa area or at a swimming pool too. Game drives will take you to the heart of the bush, to spot more animals and take amazing photographs. An optional overnight sleep-out can expose more adventurous spirits to the core of the African bush.
