 Welcome to Kambaku - Komatipoort Golf course ...

Kaleft11mbaku Komatipoort Golf Course situated in Komatipoort Mpumalanga is a 9 hole course set in the wildest corner of South Africa.  At the confluence of the Crocodile and Komati Rivers along the foothills of the Lebombo mountain range.

Ideally situated close to the Kruger National Park nestles a unique gem of a golf course that will challenge each and every level of Golfer. With the breathtaking Lebombo Mountains as backdrop you can retreat to the Bushveld let your dreams take flight and enjoy a slice of heaven...

Komatipoort golf course is unique in every way.  A group of dedicated farmers came together as a community and begun clearing the site in 1997. Course designer Douw van der Merwe added his expertise to the layout and slowly this beautiful course set at the confluence of the Komati and Crocodile Rivers took shape. It was literally a case of your bull dozer today, my tractor tomorrow; anyone got cement, sand or perhaps you can lend a hand on the weekend? You can understand how and why this course is a success such a great community effort with pride and love for the game of golf, Komatipoort golf course came to be. It didn’t happen over night and the grass was planted in 2001, shortly there after the course opened for play.

What's in the name?

The Golf course "Kambaku" is named after the great tusker from the adjacent Kruger National Park. The word KAMBAKU translated from Shangaan means "Exceptionally Big Elephant Bull". Kambaku was one of the magnificent seven great tuskers of the Kruger National Park. Kambaku was an imposing animal fully deserving of the title bestowed upon him. The length the curve and the weight of his ivory were impressive. Left tusk 259,5cm weighing 63 kg his Right tusk 265,0cm weighting 64kg. Kambaku had unique features his tusks where almost identical, he had no "paint –brush" on the tip of his tail, he had three horizontal creases or folds at the base of his trunk and a perfectly round hole in his left ear. These features made Kambaku recognisable from a distance away. During the dry season Kambaku spent most of his time along the banks of the Crocodile River which today forms part of Kambaku golf course border.

Ideal Destination...

With its dramatic river frontage Kambaku golf course in Mpumalanga is the ideal golfing destination. To all those avid golfers and non-golfers alike, you must play Kambaku. Elephant, buffalo and hippopotamus are often seen in the river during the course of play. If you keen on "birdies" bring the binocular with those "clubs", birdlife is prolific and the resident, woodlands kingfisher, fish eagle, white fronted bee-eaters to mention a few make bird watching wonderful. A few years back one of our resident impalas was taken by a leopard on the second green, this does not happen to often but adds to the uniqueness of this little - known golf course.
