I was very dubious about the fact that this was a "tented" lodge. However the rooms are more like wooden chalets with thick canvas walls, this does pose a problem when it comes to rain as the noise can wake you up, however you get what you sign up for so if you want a hotel room, book a hotel....

The Nkambeni Tented Lodge is a couple of kms outside the Numbi Gate to Kruger which makes it extremely easy to enjoy all that Kruger has to offer. There is a lovely main Lodge where all meals are served. The tents are dotted around the property so try to get as close to the Lodge as possible - otherwise it's... More

Lodge located near the Numbi gate Kruger Park entrance. The tents offer good comfort and are very tidy. Only negative to the tent is that water came in during heavy rain. The food is very good and a lot of variation. The walk from the restaurant to the canvas tents is quite long and very poorly illuminated, but it's part... More

Was based here for 3 nights as part of a 4 Day Tented Safari with Nhongo - see my other review. You can consider the rooms as standard 3 star hotel rooms that happen to be under canvas. All the normal 3 star amenities are here: tea/coffee, shower (showers in fact: 1 inside and 2 outside), maid service, plenty of... More

The place is really good. The rooms are clean and spacious. They have rooms with ac and mosquito nets to ensure you are comfortable in Kruger National Park. The room in which I stayed had attached bathroom with both options- closed and open. The setup is really nice. Their reception/dining area is really good and relaxing. They have a swimming... More

When I booked my Kruger National Park Safari tour with my South African travel agency, I was supposed to be booked in a private wooden lodge but due to some problems with me acquiring my needed travel documents, my SA travel agency said that the presuppossed accommodation was already fully booked. I'm already booked my plane tickets and I already... More

The tents are not what germans would call tents. These tents have a massive wooden backbone a private wodden tereasse, a private bathroom and really nice outdoor showers. + From the terasse of our "tent" we had a direct view to the Kruger park. 10 m away and only a fence in between elefants and bufalows were pasing by.

When I heard we were staying at 'tented accommodation' wasn't overly keen! However, you can't really call this tenting! Each 'little house' is raised off the ground with tent/canvas walls, roll-up windows on each wall and a little veranda where you can sit and watch the beautiful sunset! There is an indoor and outdoor shower - very cool! The 'common... More

We had a great time in Kruger Park. The tents were clean and had a nice "safari" feel to them. The staff was very accommodating and kind. And the surrounding scenery was breathtaking beautiful. There were even hippos wading in the back beyond the pool area. If your looking for a fun safari experience would definitely recommend this place!
