I am overwhelmed and not sure where to start. The 3 couples traveling together finished our two week South Africa adventure at Kambaku River Sands, and what a way to finish! The staff were most gracious and welcoming - not just as we arrived, but with each return from our game drive - moist towels and sherry. This level of service from staff was consistent from morning to night and day to day. The fact that various staff sat down to meals with us helped make us feel more a part of the location. The facilities are 5 star - cottages are huge and very nicely appointed - with all the amenities you could need. The food - from breakfast to dinner was outstanding - the best Kudu fillet I have very had, and the attention to service was outstanding.
Our ranger Gideon and tracker Rifos were outstanding. When we requested to see a particular animal they put their skills together and made it happen. We felt safe and in the hands of highly competent guides.
It is my dream to come back to the Timbavati Reserve and I will look no further than Kambaku River Sands. Thank you to all the staff there for making our trip so wonderful!
