Had an amazing experience at nThambo! The unfenced camp makes it that little more exciting and the rooms are amazing for any safari experience. Staff were super friendly and our ranger Matt was awesome! Had amazing interaction with the animals and got so close! So many amazing photos to have for life!

When we arrived at this camp we were offered a welcome drink which was a lovely first impression and gesture. This camp was well organized, friendly and had everything we could have wanted even though it was small. Some people would say this was a downside, I would say this was a huge positive. It meant that the trip was... More

An amazing experience with friendly staff, brilliant accommodation and lots of animal sightings! The unfenced camp means you are literally in the wild of the Klaserie game reserve. We heard Lions and Elephants most nights, Giraffes and Warthogs were regular visitors to the camp. Matt and Jacques were excellent guides and very attentive in the camp. The whole place was... More

Great experience, we did see the Big Five but we saw so much more and learned a lot about animal behaviour, plants and small animals. We saw Thanks to Luan, Isaac, Matt and Jacques, the game drives were fun and to see lions cubs sharing a feast was amazing. The Rhino marking his midden was the highlight for me. The... More

I left NThambo after two nights with a very saddened heart, I wish I could have stayed longer! I was greeted at Hoedspruit airport by Jacque, one of Nthambo's signature friendly and welcoming staff. As soon as I have arrived I was greeted with a friendly smile by Lillie who manages the camp. When I arrived to my room I... More

My wife and I stayed at nThambo for three nights at the end of July and had a spectacular time. It's really a special place, made even more so by the staff. Our ranger, Matt, was both very funny and incredibly informative, and we looked forward to the game drives as much for his wit and personality as for the... More

This was our first safari and nThambo certainly lived up to our expectations. We loved the 'away from it all atmosphere' and learnt so much from Matt and Isaac, our very knowledgeable ranger and tracker. A wonderful experience

A superb setting and attentive staff. The tracker 'Magic Mike' really knew his stuff and the wild dogs chasing down the impala 50m from the lodge was breathtaking. I couldn't recommend highly enough!!

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...
