Been here with a group on the camp site. Very nice place to stay with Kruger Park on the other site of the fence. When you go to the nice and clean toilet or shower, you'll find out that the back site is against the park fence and totally open so all animals can see you do you're thing. There... More

Will not recommended this at all.. It is a plot with tents close to an electric fence.. Have to walk far to the tent. Cannot park near your tent. The security guard came running towards the gate with open pants when we arrived.. This doesn't make a good impression.. We didn't even stay. The tents are very close together.. Aircons... More

Great first stop n the Kuger National park, just inside the park & close to everything you need, cabins available, resturant, pool & a waterhole that is right infront of the bar area. The waterhole is the home to some Hippo,s so if you look long & hard you are sure to see your first glimpse of the wild life,... More

Absolutely wonderful and a genuine bargain at the price. The air-conditioned tents are clean and well equipped, the view from the veranda is magnificent and the staff are beyond friendly and helpful. The buffet dinner and buffet breakfasts are well presented and absolutely delicious. A small pub and smoking area at one end of the veranda overlooking the watering hole... More

Nothing in this place even deserves a review other than the amazing game drive. Everything else was just somewhere between mediocre and average. I thought the service was okay until I reached my tent which seemed like a construction site because something in it was being fixed and staff members kept walking in and out and let's not even talk...

My first safari holiday and I was very pleased with everything. Nkambeni Safari Camp is not one of the very luxurious camps but it is very clean and comfortable with a friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, good food, and excellent rangers. By the 2nd drive, we had seen all the BIG FIVE plus many, many more. A very short drive to... More

The food was mundane even though they made a big deal out of it. The all-day game drive was okay and we did see some animals but the driver seemed more interested in things other than what we paying customers wanted to do (like stay and watch the animals for a bit). The accommodations were not great. As the title... More

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...
