Hamiltons Tented Camp

About the Lodge

In the early 1900s, James Stevenson-Hamilton was appointed as the first warden of the Sabi Nature Reserve. His first order of business was to announce that no shooting was to be allowed, believing that if animals were free to live in the veld, as they were before the arrival of man, they would flock to the area and lose their fear of humans. This was the start of 44 years of service to the game reserve, now known as the Kruger National Park, which today is one of the largest and most bio diverse game reserves on the African continent.

Hamilton’s Tented Camp pays tribute to this man. The camp, located in the Imbali concession, reflects the grace and elegance of a bygone era, epitomising the tradition of the luxurious African safari. The spacious and sumptuous lodge reflects the style of the 20th century African safari adventure, offering unparalleled service and attention to all guests.

My husband and I spent two glorious nights at Hamiltons. We have been to many luxury lodges within the Kruger but this is by far my favourite to date.The location is breathtaking and we were put up in the best "tent", room 1, I was informed by the extremely cheerful and efficient manager, Harold. On our second day elephants played in the river right in front of our balcony and the resident male hippo provided much amusement.Breakfasts were exceptional and the chef came to our table every evening to ensure our food was up to standard. I was so sorry that I hadn't booked a longer stay and cannot wait to return in next year.

Hamiltons Tented Camp was such a great experience! The room was beautiful, the food was great and the service was fantastic.I would recommend this to any nature lover that enjoys a bit of luxury.
