Kings Camp has a wonderful staff, food, lodging and game experience. We can't say enough about the amazing people and place. We stayed only two nights (four drives) and saw the big five and much more... would recommend at least one extra day to truly relax and take in the experience fully. The kids were treated great, the food was... More

Kings camp is an old lodge placed in the Timbavati game reserve. The acces to the lodge is easy. The bush is very beautiful, and not to thick to get a proper view of the animals. All big five is represented. And we saw two leopards in one drive. One climbed a tree. A big muclular beautiful and aggressive male.... More

Arriving at Kings Camp after being chased by some angry elephants, was a much needed relaxing experience. The decor and food are out of this world and the attention to detail is super. The evening sun downer in the river was a high light.

Kings Camp is what you would hope for in a more traditional African safari lodge experience--the warmth and ambience of being in Africa. Traditional but comfortable rooms with thatched roofs but all the modern amenities. It's not super luxurious, but that wasn't what we were looking for. Lots of game here and we saw the Big 5, plus, plus. But,... More

We spent 5 nights which was a very good amount of time. The game drives could not have been more interesting and engaged. We were able to see all the big game multiple times in different setting and close up. The ranger/guide was always able to deliver well beyond expectations.
