"Hamiltons Tented Camp - Luxury From Yesteryear"

Hamilton’s Tented Camp can be found in the Imbali Concession within the Kruger National Park, it reflects the characteristics of a bygone age and remembers the man James Stevenson-Hamilton. It maintains the style and elegance of what is a real Luxury safari experience.

James Stevenson-Hamilton was one of the first wardens of the Sabi Nature Reserve. He served for 44 years, allowing animals to roam around without fear as he had banned shooting as he very much believed in the preservation of wildlife and the ecology. Because of this many of the animals lost their fear of humans and can be seen freely roaming the area. This makes the Kruger National Park one of the most biodiverse game reserves in Africa.


Hamilton’s Tented Camp is set up on raised wooden walkways, six exquisitely furnished tented rooms, splendid in 20th Century style and luxury. Each room is furnished with consideration and class, ensuring guests experience the opulence and comfort Hamiltons has to offer. Each tented room contains:

  • En-suite bathroom
  • Elegant slipper baths
  • Intimate outdoor showers (overlooking the Nwaswitsontso river)
  • King size canopy beds
  • Mosquito nets
  • Private verandahs
  • Air conditioning
  • Tea & Coffee facilities

Set along the Nwaswitsontso River, Hamilton's Tented Camp offers guests the opportunity to see first hand, elephants watering themselves along the river bed and hippopotamus swimming freely and unperturbed. All of the Big Five frequent the Ingwenyeni Dam. The Imbali Concession offers a wide and diverse ecology, wild dog and spotted hyena are regular visitors to the dam, as is the Hamilton's lion pride. Leopards, cheetah, and various other nocturnal animals can be seen and heard. For the bird watchers, this is a veritable paradise, Hamilton's birdlife offers a rich diversity of species of bird. Over five hundred recorded species including the well-known “Big Six.”
