Set in manicured gardens, my room made me feel right at home - animal prints everywhere: throws, cushions and on walls, just like my place! Furnishings reminiscent of "Out of Africa" era. I was fortunate it was cool enough to not have the air con running and so hear a leopard during the night - felt the bush around me,... More

I was heading to SA for a week's of business travel and decided to tag on 2 days for my first safari. I bought a new camera and with my 80-400mm (on for 90% of the times), I was ready for what would become an unforgettable existential experience. Expectations were high and the total experience exceeded all of them. The... More

My husband and I spent 4 incredible days in King's Camp in March 2014! The place is from a novel, it was special and beyond expectations. Albert and Jade are a dream team! They made our safari experience incredible! Thank you Albert, Jade and King's Camp for making our trip so memorable!

Kings Camp is a beautiful lodge set in an exquisite manicured setting. The rooms are well furnished and exude an 'Out-of-Africa' ambience. The little touches such as a bottle of sherry in the room, the running of the bath when we returned from our safari ride in the evening make the experience unique. Our ranger was Jade who was most...

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights. The whole experience lived up to our expectations and more. We have experienced other safaris in the Eastern Cape, but Kings Camp is the real thing. We flew into Hoedspruit from Johannesburg and then had about a 30 min road transfer to the lodge. Check-in at the lodge was welcoming and efficient... More

If you're traveling throughout SA, I would recommend the safari at the end of the trip because the safari is breath taking! We had a chance to see all of the Big 5 in our first 2 days. Our ranger was Jade and our tracker was Albert. They were an amazing team and very knowledgeable about animals, plant life, birds,... More

We stayed at the Kings Camp in January, 2014 between sessions of a conference that we attended in Pretoria. When I booked the stay at the Kings Camp I really did not know what to expect except that other people had told what a great place to stay it was for them. When we arrived at the camp, I was... More

Just spent the beginning of our honeymoon at Kings Camp. The entire experience was first class. Having stayed on a game lodge previously I can honestly say that Kings Camp is a superior set up in every respect. Communication with them prior to arrival was easy and they were quick to sort out transfers for us. We also got a... More

We recently returned from a family trip to South Africa. It was my husband and I, and our two sons aged 13 and 17. King's Camp was the second of our safari destinations and we stayed there for three nights (also stayed at Kapama Karula and Londolozi Varty). All in all we had a wonderful time. The accommodation at King's... More
