I was very glad to have choosen Hamiltons Tented Safari Camp. I highly recommend the lodge to people who like nature and the authenticity of the bush experience. Meals are very tasty and staff were very nice. I have had a great time to be there.

This was a brilliant experience. If I ever do a return trip this would be the place. We were a group of five friends, ages from 79+ to 45, and we all had a great time.we saw many animals, and Simon as a ranger did an excellent job of making sure that happened.

Amazing set up - 6 beautiful and comfortable cabins by the edge of a river - all linked with a wooden walkway. Great staff. Good food for all the meals - sat in a beautiful reception area with the tables under the trees lit by lanterns at night.

We loved the setting, right on a river bed with many types of animals passing by all day and night. The hotel setting was similar to being there in the early 1900's. The decor and staff were attentive. Eating out on the deck with the animals passing by was very cool

We had a poor experience here. The camp staff were disinterested from the start. The range of food on offer was limited. We were given a list of the "all inclusive" drinks when this was advertised as an "all inclusive" resort? Either it's all inclusive or it's not. The animals were few and far between, but to be fair to...

Everything about Hamilton's is top notch. The main area is welcoming and the level of detail with the furnishings is second to none. We were always greeted like old friends when we returned from safari, arrived for meals, etc. Both Ben and Harold made a point to always speak with us. We didn't care for the menu selections one evening...

Best tented camp I have stayed in and this is my fourth trip to Africa. Everything is first class. The accomodations, the staff and the game drives. The food choices and quality were wonderful. I recommend this camp to anyone.

If a Hemmingway-style African Safari experience is what you're looking for,look no further. Hamilton's exudes true safari romance with crystal and glass tableware, crisp linens and waiters with fedora hats and gloves. The shady deck overlooks a deep pool where all the big five come down to drink. If you don't see big game and predators at the waterhole, then...

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.
