2. Excellent Year Round Game Viewing

Kings Camp is situated in the renowned Timbavati Nature Reserve on the boundary of Kruger National Park. The Timbavati is a wonderful destination to see the Big 5 as well as other species including giraffe, wild dogs, zebra, warthogs, cheetah and more.

Twice daily game drives are led by professional guides during your stay at Kings Camp. Customised luxury game viewing vehicles accommodate a maximum of 6 guests, ensuring your game viewing experience remains personal and highly exclusive.

Game walks are also on offer after breakfast at the request of your guide.

3. The Food

Kings Camp offers a decadent dining experience and caters to a range of dietary requirements. Our options include fine dining in our elegant dining room, relaxed lunches on the patio, traditional boma dinners, breakfasts in the bush and private dinners on the verandah of your suite. We have a growing vegan menu and cater to those with dietary restrictions due to religious beliefs.

Our camp also uniquely offers gourmet Kosher cuisine, prepared fresh on site, under the strictest Kashrut regulations. All catering is done through a licensed Mashgiach in our fully-equipped Kosher kitchen certified by the Beth-Din Council of South Africa.
