Stayed here recently for the second time. Being a "local" in the area, its always great to see tour groups enjoying their "African safari" experience. Accommodation is in permanent tents - comfortable stay. Be prepared to hear everything around you - ranging from the hyena, lions, hippo to the trains passing in the night. We were bothered by mosquitoes so... More

Nhambeni "Tented Village" is a great way to experience KNP - from it one looks into the park 24/7 through the game fences and in a 5 to 10 minute drive one reaches Numbi Gate to enter either with a ranger (good idea at least first time to get bearings and tips) or with your own/hire car (also brilliant as...

We had a very nice stay at this tented camp. This camp is located just outside Numbi Gate, but still within Kruger Park. Disadvantage of this location is that you're not surroundend by the Park and thus always have to go the same way into the park (at least at the start of your safari). Other than that, location is...

We stayed for two nights on a tour trough South-Africa, and liked the "upper deck-style" of the construction in which the reception, lobby, bar & resto was located. The tent and accessories were appropriate; in- en outdoor shower, reasonable bed, private outdoor deck. The distance inbetween the tents is rather short so we could hear every move and cough from...

We stayed at Nkambeni for 4 nights in January 2015. We had a great time; service was great. This is not a "first class" type resort; its a value-for-money, child-friendly, more-than-good-enough place to use as a base for your Kruger safari!

The Nkambeni Tented camp is adjoining the world famous Kruger National Park in South Africa and provides an excellent stop over for a couple of nights to enjoy game viewing in the open land cruisers. It is a little spread out and is what could be called "rustic" in its surroundings, but the meals and facilities are first rate. If... More

This camp is literally on the doorstep of Kruger National Park. This makes it a good alternative option to stay should you not be able to get a place inside. The menu is fair and the food is great. Their Buffet dinner is large, well prepared and tasty. They also have alternative options like a "bush" barbeque and a "Boma"... More

The tents are luxurious and the bedding & furniture are very good quality. The kids loved the outdoor shower, there’s an indoor one as well. The food is plentiful and good South African cooking. Staff is friendly & the lodge is kept tidy & clean. The swimming pool is overlooking a hippo pool! Thanks Zoey, Laura, Jaimie, Chris and team!
