We had the pleasure to stay two nights in March at Hamiltons Tented Camp. The header says it all: It is great! Consisting of only six "tents", every guest is very special. It never gets crowded, there is always space! The staff is extremely helpful and dedicated, the location above the waterhole fantastic and the rangers awesome! Never had such... More

If you are looking for the ultimate safari experience then book this place! We stayed 3 nights at Hamilton's tended camp and we loved it! Thoughtful and caring staff, skilled cook and cool rangers. Ask your ranger to do a bush walk! (but only if you are fit enough to climb trees in case of an unexpected encounter ;-) )

Wow. This place is really something special. The rooms are incredible, with the outdoor shower being a particular favourite of mine. The pool is great for relaxing, and the whole 'camp' has a wild feel to it allowing you to get up close to nature. However, the buildings and facilities are eclipsed by the staff who are just incredible. The... More

This was our first safari experience and it was amazing. Only six tents, providing an intimate experience. Staff were all great, we somehow managed to see almost all the Big 5, food was wonderful (and plentiful!). This colonial-era throwback was just marvelous. Try to get Tent #1 or #2 for best river (and hippo) view but others were great too.

After spending months reviewing all the possible safari options in Kruger Park we selected the private concession Hamiltons Tented Safari Camp and without a doubt made the perfect choice! This is a very small "camp" which consists of only 6 tented cabins so maximum of 12 guests. Cabins are elevated, hard walled with canvas roofing and air conditioning. A very... More

Hamiltons Tented Camp offers an amazing experience. The staff are friendly, fun and always ready to help. Nothing is too much trouble. The Camp itself is a very interesting reinterpretation of a colonial style, complete with period props. The rooms are beautifully clean, with king-size beds and 'period' furniture. They each open onto a personal veranda, overlooking a meander in... More
