We visited Hamiltons Tented Camp in the Kruger National Park from the 15 June 2014 for 3 nights. What an experience. When searching for a lodge to visit I scoured through all the various types of accomodation available in the Kruger. I was looking for a different type of lodge experience. Well, we were blown away. My first thought of... More

I can't say enough about this place. We stayed almost three years ago now (although trip advisor had me select a date that didn't go out that far) and I regret that it has taken me so long to write a review. However, that being said, the fact that I still want to write a review after such time, shows... More

Staying at Hamilton's Tented Camp was simply a once in a life time experience. The service outstanding, the serenity unbelievable. In the morning and late afternoon Stefan would give us insightful game drives, and during the day would be feed as much quality food as we like, and rest while watching animals such as elephants and giraffes eat. Overall thanks... More

We had a wonderful two night/three day trip to Hamiltons. The camp itself is really fun with its colonial theme; the pool area was lovely (although the weather was too hot to sit out long); the individual tented villas/chalets are fantastic - spacious, clean, excellent amenities. We loved them, it felt really private yet secure. The safaris were fantastic -... More

This really takes you back to the colonial safari. While I am not pro the colonial era, being papered and spoilt is nice every now and then. It is quite a long drive from Johannesburg but at the same time to get to see so much of our beautiful land. If you can drive there, it gives you an opportunity... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Named after Colonel Stephenson Hamilton, who was instrumental in establishing the world famous Kruger National Park, Hamilton's Tented Camp reflects a safari adventure of the early twentieth century, where grace and style were the epitome of luxurious living. Historically themed along the lines of a big game hunter’s camp encompassing the bygone era of the early 1900’s, Hamiltons Tented Camp allows indulgence in pure luxury, combined with the sounds and smells of the African bush. Six magnificent canvas tents, complete with teak floorboards, dreamy mosquito nets and a superb view of the seasonal river, are linked to the main lodge area by raised timber walkways amongst ancient Jackalberry trees. Uncompromising elegance and breathtaking beauty identifies Hamiltons Tented Camp with open tented lounge, butler service and personalised cuisine.All tented suites have a romantic slipper bath and outdoor shower overlooking the Ngwenyeni Dam, private veranda, air conditioning and an intercom service.Spa treatments are available in the privacy of your room. Safaris in 4x4 vehicles, bird watching, self drive in the Kruger National Park and guided safari walks by prior arrangement.Children over the age of 8 years are welcome and are accommodated in their own room.
