Family Friendly Safaris at Kings Camp

Kings Camp is a special destination for a family friendly safari in South Africa. Although situated within the wilds of the Timbavati Private Game Reserve, the camp is surrounded by a ground-level electric fence, keeping most big game out of the camp grounds during the day. Aside from spacious green lawns, the camp has a swimming pool, a thatched viewing deck and a nearby waterhole frequently visited by resident wildlife.

Children aged from 6 and above are permitted at the Lodge. Children under 12 years pay 50% if they share a suite with 2 full paying guests; otherwise the full adult rate applies. The child sharing at 50% will be seated in the middle seat between the 2 adults on the game drive vehicles.
