ABOUT NKAMBENI SAFARI CAMP
Nkambeni Safari Camp is now open.
Nestled in the heart of “Big Five Country” on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park, close to the Numbi Gate, lies the Nkambeni Tented Safari Camp. The lodge is a four-hour drive away from Johannesburg and was conceived by the Nkambeni Community in an effort to create jobs for the local people. Nkambeni has 150 comfortable three-star units, with individual en-suite canvas suites and private decks. The principles of responsible and community-conscious tourism are reflected in suites designed and constructed to guarantee a minimum impact on the natural habitat.
Guests are treated to authentic South African bush dinners under the stars, around an open fire, or à la carte in the restaurant. There is a delicious breakfast buffet, an à la carte lunch menu and set menus for functions.
Nkambeni Lodge has one well-equipped conference venue available, which can accommodate up to 100 guests.
