Hamilton’s Tented Camp
Set within a 10 000 hectare private concession this is truly the “Gem of Kruger”. Hamilton’s Tented Camp was named after Colonel Stephenson Hamilton, who was instrumental in establishing the world famous Kruger National Park.
About the Camp
Hamilton's 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.
Uncompromising elegance and breathtaking beauty identifies Hamilton's tented Camp. Activities include Nomadic African Spa treatments and open vehicle safaris, where, guests will enjoy some of Kruger’s most spectacular landscapes and an extraordinary variety of wildlife, birdlife and plant life. A fine tradition of luxury in true ‘Out of Africa’ style.
All 6 spacious elevated luxury tents are decorated in true "Out of Africa" style with antique styled hip baths, outside showers and flowing mosquito nets. In addition, all have private wooden decks with views onto the river bed and Savannah grasslands beyond. Each tent is fitted with a radio, hairdryer, ceiling fan, air-conditioner, and personal safe.
All tents overlook 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.
