Kambaku River Sands
, previously known as Royal Legend Lodge
, is located in the Timbavati Reserve
in the Kruger Private Reserves
area in the Northeast
of South Africa
Set to the west of the reserve, Kambaku River Sands is a pleasant facility with public areas raised up on decks above a seasonal sand river, leading out to a lovely swimming pool and an outside dining boma. There is also a substantial spa facility. Guest accommodation is in ten spacious thatched chalets. The hosting is professional and the prices are relatively keen.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari. Wildlife viewing in this Timbavati area is reliable year round. The level of guiding here is usually strong.
The main potential downside is the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.
In the Timbavati area the presence of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, but that is true of almost all of Kruger.SeasonsPrices
