Kambaku got his name from a Tsonga word meaning ‘Great Tusker‘. Kambaku travelled huge stretches of land from stretching from Satara/Orpen and Timbavati to Crocodile Bridge. Kambaku was a very unique Tusker.
Kambaku Safari Lodge, reminiscent to its name is a vast wildlife paradise in the middle of the Savannah, where Namibia’s natural living heritage is immaculately conserved. Kambaku focusses on intensive, sustainable game management. The daily tasks of the game wardens include regular game counts, species lists, monitoring the breeding and resting sites, putting out mineral licks, checking water provision and fences as well as finding and destroying poacher’s traps. Only by regulating the game population healthy animal numbers and protection of the vegetation as feeding component can be ensured while taking into account the climate and soil factors. Therefore, the responsible culling is a tool of selective wildlife management on Kambaku, too.Surrounded by the big five as well as gentle horses this journey was a transformative one for me. Spent my days with bush walks and nature drives to explore the hidden secretes of the wild. With spacious and comfortable suites, a pool and a cozy outdoor area I felt home and those sundowners with horses and bird songs reminded me of a bygone era.
Kambaku Safari Lodge will be part of my upcoming book GREEN NAMIBIA!
