Hamiltons Tented Camp: Exclusive Camp Use
At Hamiltons, our core philosophy is built around providing an elite and opulent experience that will create memories designed to hold a special place in the hearts of our guests.
As we continue to evolve to predict and provide for, each and every possible craving of our guests, we recognise the growing desire of exclusivity and seclusion in the wake of the Covid-19 era. Our Exclusive Camp Use offer aims to go beyond exclusivity and privacy: we strive to be the idyllic sanctuary for you to reinvigorate yourself, reinforce your bonds with your trusted circle, and reconnect with the healing powers of nature inside one of South Africa’s crown jewels.
Covid-19 has unquestionably changed the way that we want to travel. It has also certainly made everyone mindful, and cautious, about whom we would like to travel with and about the people we may encounter on our travels. At Hamiltons, we too, have evolved to embrace this change in order to best cater to this new era of travel. While at our core we have always prioritised privacy and exclusivity, we realize that these aspects of travel are no longer luxuries but have now become necessities for many of us.
Our Exclusive Camp Use offering embodies privacy, seclusion, and wellness at every level of the bush experience. We strive to be the serene sanctuary for you to reconnect, not only with your small group of trusted ones but also, with the vast expanses of the incomparable South African bush. It is time to escape the artificial structures and return to the purity of nature. Hamiltons is authentically, and purposefully, designed to capture the romance and elegance of a bygone era of a simpler way of life. Embrace the origins of African safari from the early 20th century inside an iconic piece of South Africa’s heritage, the Kruger National Park.
Our intimate six-room camp was designed with a strong vision to return to our natural roots.
Our uniquely elevated tented suites are fitted with teak floorboards and furniture, a stunning outdoor shower to soak in your surroundings, and a private viewing deck that boasts incredible views of the impressive N’waswitsontso River as well as the vast expanses of the unspoilt Kruger National Park from all sides. While you would have left the familiarity of your home, we have made sure that all of your creature comforts—and more— have been catered to during your stay with us. From your own freestanding soaking bathtub, to the crisp white linens, to the availability of our Nomadic African Spa treatments in the seclusion of your private deck, to the modern necessities of air-conditioning and hairdryers, we have ensured that your wellness is maximised during your stay.
Dining is a defining part of any travel experience.
At Hamiltons, we endeavour to make every dining experience a celebration, not only for your taste buds but also for your eyes. Soak in the magnificence of our concession and dine under the everlasting skies. By providing us with your group’s dietary preferences, you will indulge in our meticulously selected cuisines and dishes, which highlight our local specialities and pay homage to renowned classic recipes from around the world. Homemade freshly baked goods and beverages throughout the day, enjoyed with the chorus of the bush, entail a dining experience that even the most discerning foodies will adore.
We will always be a call away without ever being in your personal space
In the wake of Covid-19, we have worked hard to ensure that we provide maximum service to make certain that no need goes unmet whilst safeguarding that we maintain and protect your privacy and safety. As such, our talented team have extensively familiarised themselves with our elevated Covid-19 protocols and will be able to provide you with the quality service that defines what we do here at Hamiltons. We have guaranteed that your safety is prioritised at every stage of your safari experience.
One of the greatest advantages of our Exclusive Camp Use offering is the unique chance to have a 10,000 hectare private concession within the heart of the renowned Kruger National Park all to yourself.
For almost 100 years, local and international visitors have had access to the park and enjoyed one of the world’s premier game-viewing destinations. After all, the Kruger National Park is home to an estimated 1500 lions, 12000 elephants, 2500 buffalos, 1000 leopards and remains the last refuge for our country’s white and black rhinos. “Big Five” aside, there are a myriad of other wildlife species to be admired with some 145 mammal and 500 bird species occurring in the park, including hippo, giraffe, zebra, cheetah and wild dog, among others.
Yet, there is far more to the Kruger than meets the eye. The splendour and breadth of the Park can only be truly appreciated away from the busy tourist roads that only captures a snapshot of what exists beyond where the eyes can see. On our private concession, located in the abundantly rich central part of the Park, you have 10,000 hectares of pristine wilderness to explore at your leisure.
Accompanied by your private guides, with a maximum of six guests per vehicle, you will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to call a gem of South Africa’s heritage your own playground. Experience the inimitable thrills of off-roading inside the National Park in pursuit of the legendary “Big Seven” species that call our concession home. You will be able to schedule when you go out on safari, what you would like to see, and how long you spend at every sighting. If you would like the unrivalled experience of discovering the magnificent Kruger National Park on foot, or would like to spend time focusing on the smaller things out in the bush, our guiding team will be on hand to ensure that we provide you with an unforgettable wildlife experience.
The idyllic setting to reinvigorate and rebalance life.
Hamiltons has always been emblematic of a meeting place—a place to connect not only with each other but with the environment around us. Our Exclusive Camp Use offer aims to go beyond simply providing a place to enjoy with your loved ones: we strive to be the idyllic sanctuary for you to reinvigorate yourself, reinforce your bonds with your trusted circle, and reconnect with the healing powers of nature inside one of South Africa’s crown jewels.
