We visited Tamboti twice this year: once in a standard tent and once in the deluxe tent. We really enjoyed both stays, but especially in the deluxe tent. It had a real "outdoor" feeling, but did offer the luxury (nice bathroom, kitchen, kingsize bed) and privacy. Both tents were clean. We feel that Tamboti is the best camp in Kruger... More

We looked forward to our 2 night stay at Tamboti as the perfect end to our holiday. We enjoyed a hassle free book in at the Orpen Camp and were duly warned about the monkeys and baboons. We arrived at tent 38 really looking forward to a relaxing last couple of days. Upon arrival it looked wonderful – just what... More

Stayed at Tamboti Camp in the Kruger park for 1 night - wish we cold have stayed for more. Fantastic camp very floe to Orpen. Definitely one of the best camps I have stayed at in the Kruger. Would recommend a luxury tent with your own bathroom and kitchen facilities. Need to be aware of the Baboons as they have... More

The elevated tents are clean and well kept, the ablutions were great and the location was grand. Exactly what we were looking for in a bush experience. We enjoyed an array of wildlife and the serenity was Devine. The honey badger visitors were a plus!

We had a safari tent with no kitchen or bathroom. We used the communal facilities. Anything you want to cook / eat with, you must bring yourself. Towels and bed linen are provided. There is also a fridge and caged area for food on the veranda of your tent. Be aware....monkey hands can get through the holes in the mesh... More

In this camp, you will sleep in large tent (shower, outdoor kitchen with fridge, hot plates) along the Timbavati river. We didn't enjoy the night because of the cold weather, of the lack of comfort and of the baboons. As soon as you close your tent for the night, they arrive in the outdoor kitchen, searching food, they are making... More

lovely camp. shared ablutions, everything clean, beds fine, rooms are basic but fine. all that there is in your room is linen a cake of soap and a towel. if you need any supplies you need to get to orpen before the camp gates shut. it is self catering so take what you need. we went on the late game...

You sign up for a bush - tent wild experience and you get it. Great tents - most of the furniture you need Common ablutions are neat and clean Night reverberates with Lion roars, wild dogs barking, hyenas, leopard growl. Dinner time, a hyena walks 5 ft away from you. PERFECT SETTING

I have stayed here a couple of times before and unfortunately it seems to be going a bit backwards. The positives: Bathroom facilities are immaculate and everything works 100%. Communal kitchen is tidy and well serviced / cleaned everyday. Setting is still one of the best in Kruger. Negatives: Housekeeping did not do a great job in servicing the tents,... More
