The problem is the game viewing experience; You travel on the game truck for 3 hours and see very little. Perhaps it is because this is such a dry area there is little interesting game to be seen in this area, you have to travel into the proper Kruger Park area where the game viewing is excellent. For overseas visitors... More

An overall amazing experience - everything from the staff service, excellent rooms and gorgeous setting. The knowledge of the rangers was also top class and on the safari we were able to see everything we were looking for. Highly recommended!

Hamiltons Tented Camp is a beauitful safari camp in Krueger National Park. The tents are very nice and the colonial style is beautiful. In the dark you are not allowed to walk alone in the camp as there is no fence, but it's no problem at all as there is always someone to guide you. The safari was nice, unfortunatley... More

Dear Kimmenroth I apologize that you were not collected on time. We have re-visited the process to avoid this happening again in the future. As you mention, the canvass roof on the vehicle is a Park requirement, but the open sides still allow for the sensation of being outdoors. We hope to see you back at some time in the... More

Sitting on my private deck overlooking the river bed where Impala are springing along. My thought is how much Hamiltons has exceeded my every expectation. We checked into Hamiltons for a couple 2 night stay. We were warmly welcomed Harold and Louis with warm towels and ice tea. Wow, this place is breathtaking. It's like stepping back in time with...

Out three nights stay at Hamilton's was every thing we wished for! Beautiful colonial style tents, friendly and very helpful staff. Excellent food and amazing waiters. The set-up for dinner was different every night and the staff created a real colonial-luxury experience. Great safari experience, Shaun our ranger went out of his way to find animals and to make the... More

we were delighted to find such an outstanding "out of Africa"-experience within Krüger Park. The tents are luxurious at its best, perfect maintained and free of gadgetry, situated above a riverbed and provide amazing views, you must not even leave the bed to see elephants, kudus, impalas, monkeys and other wildlife, one elephant even joined us at the pool. the...

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

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
