Our 3 night stay at Hamilton's tented camp was filled with luxury accommodation, friendly staff, excellent cuisine and a safari experience second to none. The rustic location on the banks of a river bed and the viewing of game from the main deck allows one to sit back, relax and enjoy the African Bushveld as it should be. The game...

Hamilton's was a dream come true. The entire experience was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone. The camp was so well organised and our guide on the safari was just as excited to see the animals as we were.

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2015. We've been going on safari on and off since 1970, mainly in Kenya but latterly in SA, so this review is relatively objective. Easy drive in and out on the well maintained & signposted tarmac and dirt Kruger roads. Plenty of game sightings en route. Hamiltons is a rare bird in SA,...

Our experience with Hamilton's was absolutely epic, starting with the way our ranger, Dries, picked us up at the Skukuza Airport for the 90 minute journey to Hamilton's. The ride was in fact our first safari with our first sightings of hippo, elephant and the rare sable antelope as well as many impala. Once we arrived, we received a wonderfully...

Hamilton was great. Staff very friendly and food excellent. Chef certainly made different choices for food. Dessert could use some improvements. Room was wonderful. Tent 1 and 2 have best views for river.

If Poirot had turned up one evening and accused us all of murder it couldn't have felt more like a movie set. The ambience and feeling of this colonial themed lodge/camp is beautiful and somehow feels authentic. There are a few areas that are a little tired which, combined with the game viewing, are the only reasons that Hamilton's doesn't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Named after Colonel Stephenson Hamilton, who was instrumental in establishing the world famous Kruger National Park, Hamilton's Tented Camp reflects a safari adventure of the early twentieth century, where grace and style were the epitome of luxurious living. Historically themed along the lines of a big game hunter’s camp encompassing the bygone era of the early 1900’s, Hamiltons Tented Camp allows indulgence in pure luxury, combined with the sounds and smells of the African bush. Six magnificent canvas tents, complete with teak floorboards, dreamy mosquito nets and a superb view of the seasonal river, are linked to the main lodge area by raised timber walkways amongst ancient Jackalberry trees. Uncompromising elegance and breathtaking beauty identifies Hamiltons Tented Camp with open tented lounge, butler service and personalised cuisine.All tented suites have a romantic slipper bath and outdoor shower overlooking the Ngwenyeni Dam, private veranda, air conditioning and an intercom service.Spa treatments are available in the privacy of your room. Safaris in 4x4 vehicles, bird watching, self drive in the Kruger National Park and guided safari walks by prior arrangement.Children over the age of 8 years are welcome and are accommodated in their own room. The camp is situated in a malaria area. Gate entry fees are applicable and charged per person per day. ... more   less
