Kings Camp Private Game Reserve is situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park. The Timbavati was founded in the 1950s by a group of conservation-minded landowners who combined forces to protect this pristine wilderness area from destructive crop and cattle farming practices. In 1993, the Timbavati’s importance as a wildlife haven was recognized, and its fences with the Kruger National Park were removed to encourage the natural migration of indigenous wildlife.

Kings Camp Timbavati Game Reserve was established just two years later-in 1995-and has since evolved into a premier eco-tourism destination in South Africa. This slice of African paradise was purchased by Joof Alberts, and after undergoing extensive renovations, it officially opened its doors in October 1995.

Together with the Kruger National Park, the total area under protection comprises a mind-boggling 2.2 million hectares of African wilderness. It is considered a lesser-known private reserve, offering exceptional and highly exclusive game-viewing safaris in the Greater Kruger Area of Southern Africa.

Not only is Kings Camp a world-class safari destination, but also home to an incredible team of proud and dedicated staff. The lodge is managed by husband-and-wife team, Warren and Lisha Moore, who have been nurturing Kings Camp Timbavati Game Reserve since 1998, as if it was their own. In 2011, the magnificent Waterbuck Private Camp was officially added to the Kings Camp Portfolio, as a luxurious private camp for families and small group safaris within the Timbavati.

Supporting Warren and Lisha, is our passionate and experienced team of safari guides and trackers –a group of very knowledgeable individuals who are all highly skilled in revealing the wonders of the African bushveld to guests during game drives and guided walking safaris. One of our guides, Remember Mashele, has been with Kings Camp for almost 15 years, starting his career as a tracker and eventually qualifying as a guide. We believe that the strength of our team is the foundation of King Camp Lodge’s success story.

Kings Camp forms part of the Seasons in Africa group, a premier tourism marketing and management company comprising luxury game lodges, hotels and adventures throughout Southern Africa. Each of the properties within the Seasons group offers top quality facilities and friendly service.
