After staying at many lodges and camps in southern Africa, including lodges in the world-famous Sabi Sand reserve, we rate Kambaku River Lodge as one of our very best experiences. We are wildlife photographers so our primary goal is to photograph subjects so we can't wait to go into the parks each day. We stayed three nights at Kambaku and had no desire to leave the lodge to enter the Kruger Park! The food, service, views, rooms and gardens far exceeded our expectations. We even got to see and photograph 4 of the big-5 animals from our room or the viewing deck - rhino, elephant, buffalo and, on our last day, the elusive leopard. The birdlife is also amazing - we photographed raptors, kingfishers, cuckoos and many others, including the boss of the garden - the pin-tailed whydah! He entertained us each day - chasing rivals, courting females and dive-bombing any other bird that came to his bird-feeder. We highly recommend Kambaku River Lodge and suggest a minimum 3-night stay as just 1 or 2 nights is not enough time to experience everything Kambaku has to offer.
