Reviews from previous Hamiltons Tented Camp guests
“This was not our first visit to Hamiltons, and once again, our expectations were exceeded by the staff of this establishment. Staff are professional, friendly and they go out of their way to ensure that all your requirements are met. Tents are large (& airconditioned), well equipped and the outdoor shower something special. Food at Hamiltons is exceptional and the Chef ensures that all your dietary requirements are met. Our ranger was extremely knowledgeable and went out of his way to ensure that our viewing experience was memorable, but always taking the animals into consideration (this is something which we as a family admire). Our sincere thanks to everyone at Hamiltons for ensuring a memorable staff,” wrote SandyM053 on their TripAdvisor page.
