Overnight: Kings Camp
Situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Kings Camp reflects the charm and romance of a colonial past in a pristine corner of unspoiled Africa. Kings Camp is situated facing an open savanna plain with a waterhole, which is frequented by a wide variety of wildlife, day and night. Eleven generously spacious colonial suites are luxuriously equipped with air-conditioning, Victorian ball-and-claw bath, indoor and outdoor double shower, fully stocked mini-bar and private veranda. Dark tones of wood and thatch offset the natural colors of the bushveld.

Morning and afternoon game drives with knowledgeable rangers in open vehicles. You will be served tea, coffee and biscuits on your morning game drive and drinks and canapés on your afternoon game drive. Your afternoon game drive gets back after dark, which gives you the opportunity to spot our nocturnal animals with a spotlight. Walks through the bush take place just after breakfast, on request, and is the best way of experiencing the smaller wonders of the bush. Your knowledgeable ranger will guide you through the fauna and flora of the Timbavati Nature Reserve, pointing out insects, grasses, trees and the smaller species that are all an integral part of the Timbavati Nature Reserve.

Day 6-8: Leopard Hills Private Game Lodge, Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve

Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve shares an unfenced border with Kruger National Park and is named for the Sabi and Sand Rivers which flow through it. The rivers support a tremendous diversity of wildlife and provide a scenic backdrop to some of the best game viewing in Africa. The characteristic species of the Sabi Sands are impala, greater kudu, giraffe, buffalo, lion and leopard. Sightings of lion prides are the order of the day here. Open-water channels and pools are favored by hippo while buffalo and elephant are drawn to the reeds. The riverine forest is green all year round and is the haunt of leopard, greater bush baby (galago) and bushbuck.

Each of the eight luxurious glass-fronted suites, complete with their own sundeck and rock plunge pool offer superb views of the African bush.

The comfortable beds are complete with beautiful crisp percale cotton linen, down duvets and pillows, and gracious mosquito netting. A special touch to each suite is the perfection of final touches provided, from weather notes and African poems, to a fine array of bath salts and other bathroom amenities. An inviting lounge with breathtaking views over the bush creates the ideal setting to relax with a book or while away the afternoon with a pair of binoculars in the comfort of your air-conditioned suite, a wonderful reprieve from the heat of the midday sun.
