Certificate of Excellence
Situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Kings Camp reflects the charm and romance of a colonial past in a pristine corner of unspoilt Africa. Kings Camp is situated facing an open savanna plain with a waterhole, which is frequented by a wide variety of wildlife, day and night.Eleven generously spacious colonial suites are luxuriously equipped with air-conditioning, Victorian ball-and-claw bath, indoor and outdoor double shower, fully stocked mini-bar and private verandah. Dark tones of wood and thatch offset the natural colours of the bushveld.

We didn't stay in the honeymoon suite but another couple we met stayed in one. They said they did have a private pool. The main pool was very nice and we were the only ones using it.

I believe that the age requirement at Kings Camp was 7 years! I would not recommend taking a 4 year old, other than by your private non-open car. And then you will see only limited animals!
