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!

We had a wonderful 10 days in Kruger Park. We stayed at Nkambeni Tented Lodge. The tents were beautifully decorated,the beds were comfy and the showers,indoors and outdoors,were delightful! The buffet food table was laden. The steaks at dinnertime were just melting in your mouth and the dessert table was a feast for the eyes and mouth! The resident hippo... More

After 3 nights in a small private reserve (monwana game lodge) the contrast was striking in many ways. Impossible to compare but as we wanted to spend 1 night in Kruger national park, this proved to be ok (although some accommodation we saw inside the park looked better). It is a huge site but the tents are clean and efficient.... More

I was fortunate to have spent 8 nights at this facility. I was surprised at the affordability as I had always believed that there were no 'cheap' accommodation in the Kruger National Park. Beautifully appointed tented cabins on elevated platforms with all modern facilities. Reverse cycle air conditioning, mosquito nets, private bathroom and toilet as well as an outside shower... More

We were part of the Parakletos hiking club that wanted to have a hiking experience in the Kruger park. Nkambeni was recommended. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by a competent, friendly staff who made us feel special. The rooms (tents) are luxurious with air conditioning, an en suite bathroom including an indoor and outdoor shower. We could... More
