Cambalala - meaning "relax" in Zulu - is located in Hazyview, South Africa within the award winning 4 star golf and wildlife resort of Kruger Park Lodge, which is a luxurious resort on the banks of the Sabie River in Mpumalanga.

The loft has a 2-seater sofa, bean bags and flat screen TV, which makes it an ideal separate living area for the kids. There is also a handmade wooden cot for the very little. All bedrooms have ceiling fans in addition to air-conditioning. Linen and towels are provided.
The lounge, with the dining area to the rear, has direct access to the outside entertainment area, which is where you'll probably spend most of your time when you're not out on Safari.
