Waterbuck Private Camp

By Kings Camp Team on February 16, 2012

Being a guest at Waterbuck is an experience beyond ANYONE’s wildest imagination.

The thrills are countless. From seeing eight giraffe graze in a vast grassy plain while being served breakfast outside under the shade of beautiful trees to delicious 5-star meals served with elegant presentations. After our first game drive, I returned to a drawn steaming hot bubble bath with candles and flower petals artfully positioned around the rim of a high back claw-foot tub. I truly felt privileged having the staff anticipate our needs and treat us like royalty! Truly an over-the-top house staff! I must also mention the simple elegance of the house. It is so tastefully decorated with plush comfort in mind.

As if that wasn’t enough – I must also mention that our guide, Colbert and tracker, Sonny Boy are outstanding. I have seen four of the five big-five animals with only the elusive lion to find. We have two drives remaining and I think they are as determined as we are to find the lion. I can tell you unequivocally that if we don’t find the Pride of Lion … it isn’t going to be for lack of effort. This morning they left the jeep, appropriately armed, to follow some tracks deeper into the bush. When they returned – they said the paw prints were that of a large male leopard instead of a female lioness. Not to fear, Colbert says, we will keep looking. He has positioned us so close to the animals that I have been able to take unbelievable photos.

The combination of outstanding safaris, accommodations and high quality staff makes my Waterbuck at Kings Camp experience one that I will never forget. Thank you Warren and Alisha – from the bottom of my heart!

  1. My first Africa experience in 2008 was also King’s Camp and I also felt like royalty.
