My family and I recently spent 3 magical days in the Timbavati Game Reserve, staying at the King's Camp/Waterbuck Private Camp. This was our second time visiting the lodge (1st at the camp and 2nd at the Waterbuck Private Camp) and will most definitely not be the last...at this rate, we might as well move in permanently. During both stays... More
