My stay at Kings Camp was incredible. From the moment you arrive you are treated like you're the only guest on property, even if the camp is sold out. Everything you could ever want is at your fingertips. The accommodations are luxurious and the food is fantastic. There aren't too many rooms on the property which makes the stay feel... More

I have returned to King's Camp the past three years. It is truly my happy place and my favorite place in the world, out of visiting 50 countries. Just skip the hyped safari lodges and come here. You will not regret it! Everything is perfect: the cabins, staff, food, game viewing, spa, and pace of life. I've visited with friends,... More

Greated with a welcome drink celebrates the feeling of being welcomed into a family from the time one arrives. The bedrooms and bed are superb and having the luxury of outside or inside shower a bonus, the bath and all the treatments completes the picture. Food glorious food and lots of it:-). There is abundant game to be seen with... More

Kings Camp is heaven on earth. From the moment we pulled up and had our welcome drink we were treated like kings (pun intended). This boutique lodge only has a handful of rooms, so even when it's fully booked you feel like you're the only ones there. The property is amazing - beautiful pool, watering hole where we saw elephants... More

Kings Camp kept a record of our credit card details and charged us thousands of dollars 9 months after our stay. They charged our credit card without our authorisation. Even though we settled the bill in full before we left. IF YOU STAY HERE MAKE SURE YOU DONT LET THEM PHOTOCOPY YOUR CREDIT CARD AS THEY WILL DO THE SAME... More

Dear Morgan Snow Thank you for your post although we are quite disturbed about your very serious accusations. We have certainly never taken funds from any guest without their authorization. As per communications with you, the final payment for your accommodation, which you gave us permission for, was mistakenly never deducted before your arrival.

We (three families) spent three nights at King Camp in the Timbavali reserve in Greater Kruger National Park. The accommodations were the ultimate in luxury, including outdoor showers, colonial art and comfortable bedding. The staff was beyond friendly and accommodating. All meals were multi-course, and alcohol (wine, beer, and spirits) were included. Our guide/tracker teams (Grant/France and Al/Sonnyboy) not only... More

My friends and I stayed here and had such an amazing time. It exceeded all my expectations and I would go back again in a heartbeat. Everyone was so incredibly friendly and thoughtful. Our guide and tracker for our drives were incredible. We learned so much, saw so many animals and had loads of fun along the way.
