Kambaku Safari Lodge is situated on the 7600 hectare Okariuputa game farm, only 25 km north of the Waterberg Nature Reserve. This is an area covered with big thorn bushes and Omborumbonga trees. Located among beautiful shady trees and green grass the lodge was built from natural materials, linking it to its natural surroundings. The sparking blue pool invites you to take a plunge or just to enjoy the sun. Dinner is served on the veranda at end of the day in the traditional way only our kitchen can provide. For cold evenings an inside fireplace will keep you warm and a bar as well as a small library are at your service. As it is now time for dreamland, there are ten double rooms fitted in luxurious African style to provide you with all the comforts you need after a long day.
