As a first time visitor to a game lodge, we were not sure what to expect. We were absolutely blown away by our game trips and by the friendly and efficient service. The knowledge and skill of our guide and tracker was excellent. Grant the guide provided insights into everything that we saw.

Kings Camp Lodge in the Timbavati Game Reserve, South Africa, must be one of the best holiday destinations in the world! The experience from the time we stopped outside until we left can only be described as 'heavenly'. The Team of People who work at Kings Camp are 200% committed to Customer Service. They are all absolutely amazing and went so much more than the "extra mile" to ensure that our stay was out of this world and an experience we'll certainly never forget!

The Lodge itself is luxury personified and the attention to detail epitomizes what all businesses in the service industry worldwide should be striving to achieve! You can even choose what kind of pillow you want to sleep on...

Our Game Drives / Safaris were also magnificent! Our Guide, Vicky and Tracker, Albert made a formidable Team and left no stone unturned to show us as much as possible and we saw it all. We also learnt so much from both of them.

We'd like to sincerely thank Warren, Lisha, Vicky, Albert, Hennelie, Nicolene, Life, Kgotso, Yvonne, Gareth, Mike & Almero who really touched our hearts! Please forgive me if we've missed somebody.

We'd recommend that wherever you are in the world, put Kings Camp Lodge on your bucket list and make a plan to spend as much time as you can there.

God willing, we'll be back.

Many Thanks
Nicky & Alwyn

The lodge is beautiful and luxurious with every thoughtful detail. The staff is wonderful and caring. Our guide for the safari, Grant was amazing in his knowledge and enthusiasm for our seeing everything and up close and a true lover of the animals. He went out of his way to show us all. We ended up feeling that we were with special friends. The food was wonderful and inventive, considerate of our dietary needs even the massage treatment was special. This is the most amazing place ever. We felt it was a dream.

Wow! What a special few days at Kings Camp. The service delivery received at the Kings Camp exceeded all expectations. Our room was just amazing with a real 5 star feeling within Africa. Our game range was on point and showed us the big 5 within 48 hours of arriving at Kings.

The food was also yummy so good!

A trip which I will never forget.

Bookings were made through Seasons in Africa which were also amazing with helping me put together a trip of a life time.

We can't praise the team at Kings Camp highly enough. Our stay was just perfect: -The rooms were gorgeous, indeed fit for a king. We loved the outdoor shower which was especially lovely in the rain - hot shower in cold rain - delightful! And the plunge pool in mum and dad's lodge. Complete with friendly monkey, various birds and bushbuck visitors.

The food and wines were delicious and plentiful. We enjoyed have different dining venues, from formal dining room to a delightful outdoor courtyard with central fire cauldron. All staff were attentive, very pleasant and obviously enjoy and are proud of their workplace - a testament to good management!

The safari drives took us by surprise, our guide and tracker were so well informed and would not rest unless we had achieved what we set out to find. We really enjoyed having the same team with us every day - they felt like family and continued the twice a day adventure to a new location, sight, and so ensured we did not miss a thing and had the best view - thank you Cynet!! and Donald!!

We were fortunate enough to have a bush breakfast by the river bed and sun-downer drinks on the sand with traditional singing, dancing, drums and stars! - these memories will stay with us for ever.

Across all services the attention to detail was surprising, on valentines day every pillow was graced with a hand cut and folded heart shaped treat boxes! not to mention the delicious treats inside.

At every moment the management team had our best interests at front of mind, whether it be the count for numbers at a meal time, or the requirement of a medic for a high fever, or alternatives for transport. Thanks again to Warren and the team for everything.

We look forward to seeing you again!

Room Tip: Honeymoon suites have a private pool and decadent and private space
