Hamiltons Tented Camp

Kruger and surrounds, South Africa

Virgin rating

The hotel

You can sense the romance of the Victorian safari goer when you arrive at this traditional tented camp, with its vintage steamer trunks, sepia photographs, and old-fashioned hurricane lamps. Overlooking Nwaswitsontso River, Hamiltons Tented Camp throws you back into the 19th century, as you sleep beneath the canvas of one of its six elevated tents, nestled among Jackalberry and Sausage trees and linked by timber walkways. Drifting off to the rustles and calls of the bush, your Kruger National Park setting, in a private concession shared with its two sister camps, lets you wake to some of Africa’s most awe-inspiring wildlife walks, game-drives, and bush dining experiences.

We had a wonderful 5 day stay at Hamilton’s as a family group for a special birthday. The staff were charming and couldn’t do enough for us. Location, accommodation, food and game drive experiences all fantastic - I really couldn’t fault any part of our stay.

Excellent accommodations, service, meals, and game viewing. The staff were attentive and extremely hospitable. The tented accommodation units are very comfortable with spectacular views of the water course. Our family of four all enjoyed their stay greatly.

I really feel, as a veteran of many lodges, that they offer a unique experience that is their very own, and they are so happy to share this with one, and make one as welcome almost as family!
