Hamiltons Tented Camp

Kruger and surrounds, South Africa

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 stayed 3 nights (supposed to be 4 but there was little delay due to overflow river). Beautifully decorated with colonial style, amazing food selection, friendly stuff and knowledgeable guide. We heard lion roaring not so far at night and some visitors near by (baboons, bushbuck, and hippo).

I love it when a good plan becomes a great destination. Private butlers, onsite chefs and a front row view of South Africas magical bushveld! Staying at this lodge, one of three on the same 10 000 consession inside the Kruger National Park , is a dream come true!

My wife and I stayed for a night at the Hamilton's as part of our 3 day honeymoon tour of the Kruger National Park.Wow, what can I say about the Hamilton's Tented Camp? From the moment we arrived to the time that we left, my wife and I were treated like absolute royalty. Upon entering the lodge we were greeted by the wonderful and friendly staff who tended to our every need. As we were there for our honeymoon they surprised us with a private, candle lit dinner in our tent. The food was absolutely delicious. The game drivers were an absolute treat at the knowledge and expertise of the game driver made it all the more special. We saw so many animals during the drives including lions, hyena and cheetahs. We would definitely recommend staying there and can't wait to go back! Read less

We stayed here several years ago for 4 nights. Each drive we saw many different species and the big 5. Right in front of the lodge were massive elephants everywhere hanging out. Vervet monkeys and birds. Our room was quite spacious and the staff were fantastic. The food was delicious and we were all made to feel very welcome. I wish I could visit… Read more
