Testimonials:

“Most incredible place in the world”

Where to begin… This is a magical place and has a special place in my heart.

My husband and I recently stayed at Kambaku River Sands for our Honeymoon. We went in with zero expectations and came out not wanting to leave and even shed a tear when saying goodbye to the guides and friends we had made.

This place by far exceeds 5 stars in every SINGLE category.

“Best experience of my life!!”

Me and my wife just went here for our honeymoon. We spent 4 nights and did 8 game drives. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. The staff was absolutely incredible. Our guide JJ and out tracker Ranias were the best. Every night we had dinner in a new location under the stars, surrounded by bonfire. On our last night they surprised us with a private dinner in the wine cellar. After dinner we returned to our room to find flowers pedals and candles leading to the bathtub. Which had been filled with bubbles and champagne waiting. We got extremely close to the wildlife and always felt safe. We will definitely be going back. I won’t even consider going to a different place. Attached are just some of the pictures that we took. I had a 210mm zoom lens. Not very big. Best experience of our lives!!!!
