Hamiltons Tented Camp
Set within a 10 000-hectare private concession this is truly the “Gem of Kruger”. Hamiltons Tented Camp was named after Colonel Stephenson Hamilton, who was instrumental in establishing the world-famous Kruger National Park.
Hamiltons Tented Camp epitomises luxury with an outstanding safari experience. Magnificent, tented suites complete with teak floorboards, dreamy mosquito nets, slipper baths, outdoor showers, and a superb view of the complete seasonal river, linked to the main lodge area by raised timber walkways amongst ancient Jackalberry trees.
Guests are accommodated in six exceptionally private luxury elevated tents overlooking the N’waswitsontso River. From your own private deck, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the bush that derives its existence from the river.
Traditional fittings and features such as old brass light switches, steamer trunks with vintage labels revealing exciting journeys and sepia-stained photographs enhance the tradition and style of this ‘turn-of-the-century’ luxury safari tent; modern comforts such as electricity, air conditioning and an outdoor shower the only clues that we live in a different time.
The décor is light and neutral; teak furniture and floors, gilded mirrors and crisp white linens deliver a classy luxury tent experience enhanced by the panoramic bush and river views that begin at the edge of the deck.
