Kamara House is the newest intimate safari lodge in the Thornybush Wildlife Reserve, perfect for multigenerational families or small groups with three bedrooms and two en suites. A private house overlooking a small riverbed, it’s a place of secluded sustainable luxury in the untampered beauty of South Africa’s savannah.
It’s hard to comprehend such a high level of luxury in such open wilderness, but Kamara House makes sure this is a tangible reality. You’ll find a plunge pool, spa, and dedicated butler on hand to take care of every whim. Meals are conjured up by your personal chef and served alfresco on the terrace with each plate prepared with the freshest ingredients; there’s nothing quite like the aroma of baked bread to welcome you home after your morning expedition.
Thanks to sharing an unfenced border with South Africa’s Kruger National Park, the reserve is home to an abundance of species – from giraffe and wild dog to the Big Five. See them in all their glory with organised wildlife drives exclusive to your group. Rise at dawn for a sunrise bush walk or wait for dusk for landscapes still touched by the gold of an African sunset.
Complement this thirst for discovery with the peaceful comfort of your lodge. Interiors combine organic textures and a neutral palette for a contemporary twist on bush life. Indoor–outdoor living is the key here: glass sliding doors, treetop views, and a terrace that doubles your living space make jumping from the leather sofa to the pool a breeze – the best spot to snap passing wildlife as it ambles by.
