Walker's River Camp is a self-catering safari camp, located in the heart of the renowned Big 5 Timbavati Private Nature Reserve in South Africa. The camp is set on the banks of the Klaserie River, and consists of five chalets, accommodating a maximum of ten guests. The chalets feature en-suite facilities, as well as outside showers and mosquito netting on the beds. The lodge itself is self-catering, and features a large, well-equipped kitchen that has a fridge, freezer, oven, microwave, and gas stove.
