Our 3 night stay at Hamilton's tented camp was filled with luxury accommodation, friendly staff, excellent cuisine and a safari experience second to none. The rustic location on the banks of a river bed and the viewing of game from the main deck allows one to sit back, relax and enjoy the African Bushveld as it should be. The game... More

After having read all the wonderful reviews. I was very curious as to if it would live up to all the great reviews. Well from when we arrived to a very warm welcome. I just loved the old colonial tented feel. The staff were superb friendly. The rooms were spacious and luxurious. We had room 3. The reserve at the... More

Hamilton's was a dream come true. The entire experience was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone. The camp was so well organised and our guide on the safari was just as excited to see the animals as we were.

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2015. We've been going on safari on and off since 1970, mainly in Kenya but latterly in SA, so this review is relatively objective. Easy drive in and out on the well maintained & signposted tarmac and dirt Kruger roads. Plenty of game sightings en route. Hamiltons is a rare bird in SA,... More

Our experience with Hamilton's was absolutely epic, starting with the way our ranger, Dries, picked us up at the Skukuza Airport for the 90 minute journey to Hamilton's. The ride was in fact our first safari with our first sightings of hippo, elephant and the rare sable antelope as well as many impala. Once we arrived, we received a wonderfully... More

Hamilton was great. Staff very friendly and food excellent. Chef certainly made different choices for food. Dessert could use some improvements. Room was wonderful. Tent 1 and 2 have best views for river.

If Poirot had turned up one evening and accused us all of murder it couldn't have felt more like a movie set. The ambience and feeling of this colonial themed lodge/camp is beautiful and somehow feels authentic. There are a few areas that are a little tired which, combined with the game viewing, are the only reasons that Hamilton's doesn't... More

I spent a weekend away at Hamiltons. In summary it was one of the greatest places I have ever had the opportunity to visit. The staff were friendly and attended to our every need.

Stayed one night as family with teens. Already stayed two nights at sister lodge Imbali but this was a very different experience. No internet - not even a phone - but the kids loved the experience of sleeping in a luxury tent whilst lions and baboons made a racket all night.
