Kambaku has the largest traversing area in the Timbavati and some exclusive areas as well so the game viewing was fantastic – we saw a leopard dragging off an impala to her two young cubs, and a den of five inquisitive young hyena. River Sands is really luxurious and spacious – and the elephants love drinking from the infinity pool on the deck.
