About
Description
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 More 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. The camp is situated in a malaria area. Gate entry fees are applicable and charged per person per day. Less

Hi - Marcelle (and other potential bookers and most importantly the attention of hotel management)- Thanks for alerting that you too have experienced this. I have been contacted by the hotel today- 2 months(!!!) after my reservation was confirmed and paid for. If there is a problem with a booking you do not leave it 2 months after booking to raise it when all the other arrangements ie flights from the UK and all the other hotels and flights in an itinerary have been made for a group of people. For two months they have had my payment in full. If you value your reputation as a high quality 5 star experience you should value your guests and honour reservations especially after so much time has elapsed. It does ask questions regarding internal organisation and staff if an error that has these implications is not picked up but also that the hotel then makes it the guests problem rather than resolving it with the booking system provider and their internal personnel and management. The hotel management needs to address it with the third party, resolve any error for compensation, not the guest. If you go into a store and buy a TV on offer you dont then have the store phone you two months later and ask you for more money or they take the TV back and think thats acceptable. Just not a 5 star approach - considering they have caused the problem, not managed it and then are parking a much bigger problem at the guests door and not taking responsibility for it. I think they would do well to think of the worth of their reputation (as otherwise they will get a number of similar reviews) and concentrate on making sure this does not happen again and that they have the right management in place to pick up a problem quicker than two months later. Hotel booking should be in real time and if payment is received you have made a contract with them that they have responsibility to honour. I am a seasoned traveller and have stayed at many 5 star and boutique properties so I know what I am looking for. In this case I spent many hours searching and comparing lodges, reviews and prices to book this. Now two months later there isn't the same availability and as an organiser of a group celebrating a big birthday (ie a special trip) I will now have to go back and do this all over again when prices have increased and our arrangements aren't amendable as we have a whole itinerary -including internal flights specific to this stay. The impact is significant. This issue should not be addressed by reservations staff this needs to be addressed by the Hotel management. I have not posted a similar review yet as I hoping that this will be resolved satisfactorily once feedback has been received and the matter has been escalated appropriately. Basically I feel dumped on by THEIR problem, If you advertise being 5 star then that has to be reflected throughout, earned and delivered.
