We have visited quite a few lodges over the years and for me the outstanding quality of Kambaku is the "real South Africa hospitality". As can be seen from the other reviews the service and the food is excellent but great food and service is to be expected.
To offer hospitality goes beyond great service and is more related to the spirit of the lodge than to the service levels.
Other game reserves in the area are reputed to have great game viewing but we were pleasantly surprised at the game viewing in the Timbavati. The reserve forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park and despite there being fewer game vehicles operating in the reserve at any given time calling in sightings to each other we experienced some of our best game viewing ever without having to deal with the 'traffic' you get at other private reserves.
