                      We absolutely loved our stay here. The house was comfortable and far exceeded our expectations. The view is amazing. The highlight was being able to view the animals from our porch and viewing them from the deck was an even better experience. We got to see Elephants , Hippo , Crocodiles , Buck , Warthogs , Giraffe and Buffalo. we literally had the Kruger National Park in our backyard!...waking up to that view every morning was a highlight....Loved it and will hopefully be back some day...Leanne and Martha and the rest of the team were amazing and helpful and always on hand to help. Thank You...

                      We completely enjoyed our stay at Kambaku River Lodge. It is perfectly situated on the Crocodile River near the Malelane gate at Kruger. The self catered rooms are nicely appointed and very comfortable. The owner/manager of the lodge is lovely and welcoming. You can watch game from the viewing deck right at the river or from your private porch or the pool. We saw eles, crocs, hippos, rhino and a variety of birds. Loved it!

                      My wife and I stayed 3 nights at Kambaku River Lodge and had a wonderful time. The property is new and well appointed. We drove into Kruger each day and loved every minute.
