Explore the Wild: Discover the Beauty of the Kruger National Park
Nestled in the heart of one of the most famous wildlife conservation areas in the world, Nkambeni Safari Camp welcomes you to Big Five country. Here, in the world-renowned Kruger National Park, thrilling up-close and personal wildlife experiences await you in an exclusive-use 11500 hectare private concession.
The camp is ideally located close to the Numbi Gate, around 4 hours by road from Johannesburg. Close by are the Lowveld towns of White River and Hazy View and you are just two hour’s drive from the stunning Blyde River Canyon.
Nkambeni Safari Camp is ideally placed to access a wide variety of Lowveld activities and attractions when you feel like a change of pace. Why not embark on a grand adventure and get a bird’s-eye view of the park from the lofty heights of a Hot Air Balloon? Other popular activities include river rafting, elephant encounters, cultural visits to near-by villages and panoramic tours to explore the magnificent Blyde River Canyon, the world’s largest “green canyon” which boasts some of the deepest canyon cliffs in the world.
Specifically designed to leave the smallest possible foot-print in this pristine wilderness, the 150 en-suite luxury tented suites are tastefully decorated to provide comfort and an authentic African bush ambiance. Your timber and canvas suite overlooks the bush and you can enjoy the rare privilege of a (completely private) outdoor shower under the wide African sky.
The camp offers early morning and afternoon game drives with enthusiastic and very experienced rangers. Their knowledge of the area is unsurpassed and you can look forward to enjoying exciting close encounters every time you set out. Game drives use open-sided 4X4 game viewing vehicles which optimise viewing and photographic opportunities. If you would prefer to pack even more excitement into your day you can book half-day or even full-day game drives.
Nkambeni also offers night drives which give you the opportunity to see some of the park’s nocturnal creatures or possibly catch a glimpse of the big cats as they become active and set off to hunt.
A guided bush walk is a wonderful way of getting up close to many of the smaller creatures, plants and birds that we often overlook on a game drive. If you are up for a great adventure you can join one of our excellent guides on foot in the concession. This is a great opportunity to do some bird watching and photography and identify many endemic plant species.
Nkambeni is just a few miles from Numbi Gate which makes it very easy to set off on your own for some self-drive game watching within the Kruger National Park. This could be a good option for families if their young children get restless on the organised game drives.
