Rewald Drinkwater Chats About Nambu Camp Joining Sun Destinations

We are pleased to announce the merge of sister companies African Retreats and Sun Destinations. That’s right, African Retreats and Sun Destinations have tied the knot! In 2016, the directors of Sun Destinations—along with Corlia Oosthuizen—created a small boutique company that set out to offer reservation services to a handpicked selection of camps specialising in both local and international markets. Don’t worry—there won’t be any changes to Sun Destinations, aside from the addition of a NEW camp to our Kruger portfolio. With rack rates starting from R3750, Nambu’s affordable rate, stellar service, and location make it a sought-after lodge in the Balule Nature Reserve.

Owner Rewald Drinkwater penned a few words about joining the Sun Destinations portfolio of camps and lodges.

Nambu Camp: The Greater Kruger’s – Finest Safari Lodge

Nambu camp has been owned and managed by the Drinkwater family since 1979. A family home, the Drinkwater’s raised their children amongst a treasure trove of memories, adventure and a passion for wildlife. Today, these values extend to our guests and are the heart of the Nambu Camp experience.

Over the years Nambu Camp has established itself as one of the The Greater Kruger Park’s finest lodges and in doing so has always aligned itself with partners with shared vision. And with that, it is time for Nambu to spread its wings and move with the herd. We are thrilled to announce that Nambu Camp is now represented by Sun Destinations, one of the leading marketing and representation management companies in South Africa.

For years, African Retreats has provided our guests with exceptional service and memorable moments. We would like to thank them for their unwavering support and look forward to continued success with Sun Destinations.

With Sun Destinations, you can expect the same level of personalised service and attention to detail that you have come to love at Nambu Camp. They will be looking after our marketing and reservations, ensuring a seamless and stress-free experience. Their knowledgeable and experienced travel specialists are dedicated to making your trip to Africa unforgettable.

We invite you to join us on a journey through the breathtaking landscapes and diverse wildlife of Africa. Experience the thrill of a game drive, relax in our modern accommodation, and indulge in delicious meals made from locally sourced ingredients. Nambu Camp is the perfect destination for those seeking adventure, luxury, and comfort in one of the world’s most beautiful places.

We look forward to welcoming you!
