From the moment we collected our cases from the roadside at the airport and were transferred to camp by Isaack, we very very well looked after, with fabulous game drives, excellent food, well stocked bar, comfortable rooms, fantastic views of the bush from the tree house and great bush walks from the camp too. thank you for a magical introduction...

AMAZING! The elevated tented accommodations were beautiful. The view was breath taking. The layout of the tent was spacious and the bathroom was very well appointed. We had a monkey or baboon visit our tent while we were out. I left a protein bar in my open bag. It was totally my fault. We did not have any other instances... More

We had been a another lodge first. This one is amazing. The setting is looking out over the bush. We enjoyed the tent and the view it gave us. We arrive to Baboon running by. The staff is attentive. Our guide was amazing at finding the animals.

Good experience. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms were warm even though it was winter. Transversing area seemed limited as we traveled the same roads over and over. Would recommend it to first time safari travelers

The guide was very knowledeable and provided animal, bird, and... More

OK, so my warning is simply because you will want to return to this Lodge and will not want to leave!:) From the moment we arrived with a warm welcome and drink to our last safari, this place was hands down one of the best places we have stayed. We went May 19-22 of 2015 and the weather was perfect!... More

We have just finished a five-day stay at nTambo Tree Camp and what an amazing place this is! I cannot speak highly enough of the camp, its staff and the fabulous animal encounters. Because this camp has a maximum of ten guests staying at any one time they are able to provide the kind of personal experience you can usually... More

Left yesterday from nThambo. Wish we were still there. Tons of animal viewings and tons of delicious food. I can not say to many good things about our stay. Tracker Issack, did a wonderful job. Driver Matt really knew his stuff. Luan, the other driver was off duty but was very helpful. The meals were fantastic. We had beautiful weather... More

I spent a whole week there in June 2014 and that was my second time which means I definitely enjoyed the place! The camp consists of five tents for maximum ten guests and is just perfect if you do not like being surrounded by noisy masses. Animals roaming around during the night so one might lose some sleep watching them:... More
