The setting in each of the spacious air-conditioned tents at King’s Camp recalls colonial elegance: indoor and outdoor double shower, Victorian ball-and-claw bath, fully stocked mini-bar and private verandah. In the mornings, set off to discover the copious wildlife in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve: the Big Five are just a taste of the over 40 species of mammal roaming this wilderness. Perhaps the most famous of which are the White Lions of Timbavati, an extremely rare type that gained fame in the 1970s but have long been honored as divine by local tribes. King’s Camp allows you to truly unwind in these beguiling wilds: wile away the afternoon with a cool drink in the thatched shade of the bar or go for a refreshing swim in the pool while casting glances at the wildlife around the adjacent waterhole. Or, take a walk amid trees teeming with a wealth of birdlife, over 360 species call this region home, and simply immerse yourself in these pristine wilds. In the evening, return from yet another thrilling game drive after dark, when spotlights illuminate the nocturnal species here: porcupines, servals, civets and genets to name just a few. And always, allow your day to be capped with the superb creative dishes of Chef Himler Dorfling. Savor this world-class cuisine in the tasteful dining room, in the traditional boma or out in the untamed bush, with a blanket of stars overhead.
Perched on rocky ridge overlooking a waterhole, Leopard Hills is ideally situated for breathtaking views of Sabi Sands Game Reserve. Eight air-conditioned suites feature a glass-front, providing a panoramic view of the picturesque and game-rich veld below. Yet that is only the beginning of the luxuries here: each suite includes its own sundeck (ideal for relaxing with a book, or spying animals with binoculars), a heated plunge pool, en-suite bathroom and indoor and outdoor showers with views of the enchanting wilderness beyond. It seems no matter where you go here, you are followed by views of the enchanting African bush. The urge to explore this captivating land is quelled on early and morning and late afternoon game drives. Expert professional rangers point out the plentiful wildlife of the region (lion, elephant, white rhino, buffalo, cheetah, wild dog and hyena, to name just a few species) while you relax in the comfort of state-of-the-art 4x4 vehicles designed specifically for Leopard Hills. Should you wish to take to the bush on foot, a ranger will point out the finer elements of the Sabi Sands ecology, including insects, grasses, trees and smaller species you might miss in a vehicle. Back at camp, superb staff pampers you, whether you are enjoying a silver service dinner, one of the indulgent treatments at the spa or a glass of local wine by the crackling fire.
