Ideally located in the world renowned Timbavati private game reserve/adjacent to the Kruger National Park, you are almost guaranteed to see the "big 5", the little 5 and everything in between. The rangers are knowledgeable, trained and experienced i.e.Legitimate (yes watch out for posers at other places!) and the tracker we had - Albert - was one of the best...

Thoroughly enjoyed my three night safari at Kings Camp. We were guided by the very kind Remember and Elvis, who were both knowledgeble and very professional. Lodge staff and the owners were very friendly too, and made my stay as a solo traveller great (no solo-supplement!). Rooms are amazing, service impeccable. Truly the highlight during my three week SA-roadtrip. No...

My wife and I went in November and only one word can describe our experience: Amazing. The staff is very friendly and goes out of their way. The safari guides are very knowledgeable and we saw big 5 within our first 2 game drives. Food and service is exceptional. Highly recommend this resort for anyone visiting Kruger National Park.

Kings Camp was the first of six camps we experienced in southern Africa. It offers modern amenities while showcasing the best of Africa's wildlife. The camp has wi-fi and air-conditioning, two amenities that are not common in most camps. The rooms are large, comfortable and kept very clean. The food was fantastic and I enjoyed having entree options each day....

My birthday present was a trip to Africa. After a week in Cape Town, we arrived at Kings Camp. Remember picked us up and we enjoyed the 45 minute drive to the camp. "Camp" is a bit of a misnomer, there are no tents here. A handful of bungalows, beautifully and tastefully furnished. Lisha's father-in-law is a big antiques dealer...
