On my trip to the Hoedspruit area I photographed an awesome self catering lodge in the Timbavati called Walker’s River Camp. The lodge consists of 5 private suites all with baths, outdoor showers, separate toilets and fan enclosed nets over the beds. The lodge is in a wonderful space overlooking the Klaserie river and is enclosed by a fence making it safe for families with small children. The entertainment area is large with a huge pool stretched over the lawn with views of the river and a beautiful sleeperwood bar and covered lounge area make up the rest of the space. The wonderful staff are on hand to clean, make beds, make the Boma fire and generally assist where possible.
Timbavati is home to the big 5, including the very rare White lions of the area and all are frequent visitors to the camp. Walker’s is the perfect spot for family and friends getaway in a rustic but luxury camp which gives you all the perks of being in the Timbavati: game drives, big 5 and the feeling of being completely surrounded by nature.
