The Kruger National Park is one of South Africa’s biggest and most beloved places to visit. The wildness of the park will transport you to a bygone era, introduce you to a side of Africa that doesn’t seem to belong in the modern world but at the same time, could not exist in a more perfect setting. Every guest who visits the Kruger loses a piece of their hearts to this slice of heaven.

Kruger Park lodges come in all varieties, from budget backpacker style accommodation to luxurious, private accommodation, perfect for anyone in search of a romantic break or the ultimate family getaway.

Kambaku River Lodge offers guests a truly enticing getaway experience, with luxury Kruger National Park accommodation, right on the banks of the Crocodile River. Our location gives visitors a wildlife viewing experience they will never forget, and along with our guided Kruger Park safaris, guests will be in the perfect position to enjoy an all-round Kruger trip.

Kambaku is a dream come to life. When the land was first bought, there was nothing here but the wild grasses, thorn trees and the rush of the Crocodile River. We wanted to build an exclusive, idyllic retreat that would provide for our guests’ every need. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into the building of the lodge that you see today. The rooms are spacious, the meals are delicious and the memories made are ones you’ll treasure for the rest of your life. Time spent at Kambaku River Lodge will reignite your soul, rejuvenate your senses and leave you planning your next stay with us. The lodge only accommodates a limited number of guests, which ensures that your stay is always quiet and relaxed.

To ensure that you have the most relaxed stay possible, each of our rooms and our guesthouse, has a list of amenities for guests to make use of.

Each accommodation option includes an outdoor fireplace and seating area, overlooking the river below. There is nothing better than ending your day looking down upon the river, spotting the various wildlife who frequent the water after dark. Elephant, warthog, hippo and leopard are just a few of the animals who have been seen from the lodge.

Beyond Luxury Accommodation

With relaxation being key to getting the most out of your holiday with us, we have a number of activities for you to look forward to enjoying. Firstly, there is the spa. At our Dzombo Spa, our in-house spa specialist will help you unwind. Some of the treatments we have available include back massages, full body massages, foot massages, pedicures, manicures, facials and various other treatments.

Once you’ve had your full spa experience, you can enjoy a day of golf at the world-class Leopard Creek Golf Course. The course is beautifully laid out and incorporates nature within the manicured golf greens. Usually a private members club, we have an arrangement with the course that allows our guests to play a round or two, provided we book beforehand.

And what would a trip to Kambaku be without time spent on safari? We have our own safari vehicle and our guests can enjoy a guided Kruger Park day safari when staying with us. Our location allows us to take our visitors into the Southern Kruger, an area of the park which has become well known for some of the best wildlife sightings in the park. It is also an area that is great for seeing the legendary Big 5.
