Kambaku River Sands

Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, South Africa

Part of the South Africa Safari & African Safari Collection

Kambaku River Sands is well situated in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, which makes up the western boarder of the Kruger National Park.

Without fences inhibiting the free movement of game between the reserves, Timbavati becomes part of a vast unspoilt natural wilderness area that lies within the Greater Kruger National Park. 

Kambaku (Solitary Bull elephant), takes its name from one of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ tuskers who roamed the Kruger Park for the greater part of the last century. These elephant were renowned for their impressive tusks – having at least one tusk with the estimated weight of over 60kg.
