Remarkable Game Kambaku River Lodge has exceeded our expectations. The exquisite setting with its glorious sunsets and remarkable game is the perfect resting spot away from the bustling city life. We have enjoyed every moment on the porch, in the pool, at the Kruger and in our luxurious room. We cannot wait for our next stay.
