We have stayed 2 nights in this little gem in the Bush. Cottages (tents) are very stylish and full of comfort. Fantastic views across the bush from your amazing bed. Lilly, Luan and Matt are great hosts and very knowledgeable rangers as well. Price is much lower compareer to the famous Private Safari Camps nearby but the experience is similar.... More

We stayed 3 nights in mid-October and loved the experience, almost camping in the bush but safely. Staff were very knowledgeable and helpful --- Matt and Isaac terrific ranger/tracker combo filled with info to share and still plenty of enthusiasm for finding game for us, though they do this all the time. There were some ongoing problems with the jeeps... More

The service and professionalism at nThambo are outstanding. They take care of everything. I loved having our own beautiful building with all the amenities. Isaac and Luon make a great team. I don't know how Luon managed to be an excellent driver and bush encyclopedia at the same time but he did. I'm glad Klasserie wasn't the only place where... More

A really incredible place, with an amazing and passionate team (special thanks to our game drivers Matt and Isaac!) It is hard to choose a lodge (we have spent some time on it with our travel agent) but we do think we have made the right choice with Nthambo! One hour after we arrived we had already seen a lion...

Our family of 4 (adults) travelled to South Africa for a safari holiday. We had the pleasure of staying for 3 nights at nThambo Tree Camp. It was amazing. The game driving was spectacular under the professional guidance of our ranger Matt and our tracker Isaac. Coming home from a game drive one night to find our tree house surrounded... More

nThambo Tree Camp is an amazing place : lodges in the middle of the bush with a great view. You feel like privileged. The lodge was very clean. The staff was friendly and very interesting. We made 2 safaris with them and saw a lot of animals, and especially many lions and buffalos. We had a great time with the... More

The camp lies in the middle of the bush. There are no fences, so that you may see some animals from your treehouse or from the dining area. The treehouses are great! Comfy, clean and spacious. From your own terrace you have a great view into the bush and the waterhole. There´s a dining area, where you can also realax... More

We stayed two nights at the nThambo Tree Camp and took park in 6 game drives. Zebras and Warthogs were a common sight around our camp. The staff were excellent hosts and Matt, our ranger and Luan our tracker were outstanding. We learned a lot about the animals and their habitat and saw a number of birds. The Camp is... More

Absolutely awesome experience! My guides Matt and Isaac were amazing. I saw so many animals and learned so many facts. The tree chalets were clean and comfortable. I was lucky I went before the mosquitoes came out in full force since my mosquito net did have some big holes in it. On my very last morning there were lions right... More

We were joining a two week safari tour in Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Zambia and wanted to add a greater Kruger experience. We could not have been happier than our 4 nights at nThambo. Two game drives a day, a walking safari midday, were incredible experiences. We saw animals and birds too numerous to mention. We learned about behavior, habitat, and... More
