One of Krugers’ best kept secrets - Nkambeni Safari Camp


Nkambeni Safari Camp is for those longing for the magic of the Kruger, but want something a little different to what we’re used to when staying in the park – at an affordable price.


With different packages available, guests can choose whether they want game drives dinner, bed and breakfast and even have the option to self-drive in the Kruger. It caters to budget bush lovers who want an inclusive yet authentic experience, on their own terms. Guests can choose to relax on the sun deck, by the pool, or in the spacious lounge area. There is also the option to drive themselves in the park or book a guided drive.


The atmosphere of the camp is energetic and warm, with all the comforts necessary for a holiday. Yet, it is rustic enough to get an authentic experience, in the Kruger bush. The tents are equipped with a comfortable bed, mosiquito net, air-con, both indoor and outdoor showers and (our personal favourite) a deck overlooking the Kruger. We love bush views!


We can see why foreign groups would love a trip to Nkambeni, but it’s also a perfect getaway for South African holiday-makers, much like ourselves, who are travelling on a budget to the Kruger. It may only be 3 star, but it’s definitely worth what you pay for. We had an amazing stay and would happily send overseas and local South African guests that are looking for value-for-money trip, but want to experience the one and only Kruger.
