Situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Waterbuck Private Camp at Kings Camp is the ultimate luxurious game lodge experience – exceeding all expectations. It is the ultimate in safari privacy, boasting a 4-bedroomed villa with its own private landrover, game ranger, personal butler and chef to take care of the guest’s every need. Subtly blended into the natural environment, this Private Camp reflects the charm and romance of a luxurious Colonial past.  Raised above a dry riverbed, it offers great views of the bush and excellent game viewing opportunities. Suites all overlook the private gardens, sparkling pool, viewing deck and boma,  the ideal place to simply relax and soak up the tranquillity of the African bush.  This private camp accommodates a maximum of 8 guests – perfect for small groups and families.
 
The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve came into existence on July 1956 when a group of conservation-minded people who owned game farms on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park came together to form the Timbavati Association.

The size of the reserve covers about 60 000 hectares of pristine African bush, part of the world famous greater Kruger National Park. The Kruger National Park itself is a further 2 million hectares in size, which is about the same size as Israel or Wales. In the early 1990’s the boundary fence between the Kruger National Park and adjacent private game reserves, namely Timbavati, Sabi Sands, Klaserie, Umbabat and Manyaleti was removed to create the greater Kruger National Park, covering an area of 2.2 million hectares. The reason being conservationists wanted to re-create ancient migration movements of wildlife from the foothills of the Lebombo Mountains in the east, to the Drakensburg Mountains in the west.
 
Kings Camp is situated in the northern corner of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve and has been in operation as a game lodge since 1995. Our commitment to our guests is to freely share in the experience in a manner that is both enlightening and relaxing. We are further dedicated to a gracious style of hospitality from a bygone era, combined with a flexibility that puts the comfort and requests of our guests first. But above all, we will do this in a manner that will never compromise our environment, instead it will materially benefit our surrounding community culturally, environmentally and economically.
