Waterbuck Private Camp

Discover Waterbuck Private Camp

Waterbuck Private Camp is a 4-bedroom private safari villa situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, bordering South Africa’s famous Kruger National Park. Perfect for an intimate family and friend getaway, it offers all modern conveniences and a dedicated team of a private game ranger, tracker, villa host and chef. You can set the pace of your exclusive safari. The camp is set on the banks of the dry Nhlaralumi River offering excellent game-viewing opportunities.

It blends subtly into the natural environment and reflects the charm and romance of a bygone era. Within the air-conditioned villa is an opulent Master Suite with an open-plan bathroom and a comfortable viewing lounge on the top floor. On the ground floor, on either side of the kitchen and lounge area, are 2 luxury suites. There is also a detached luxury garden suite completing the accommodation for a maximum of 8 guests. Each bathroom features Victorian baths and indoor showers whilst the downstairs suites also feature outdoor showers. The main outdoor living area is raised above a dry riverbed overlooking savanna plains, with a pool, fireplace, and dining area. The chef will serve your meals in the elegant dining room, boma or on the private viewing deck under starry African skies. At King’s Camp, adjacent to Waterbuck, you can make use of the spa and gym, or be pampered in the privacy of your suite at Waterbuck.
