We were in NThambo for two nights (first week of March 2014). It was our first wildlife safari experience. We were pleasantly surprised. Very nicely decorated tree house type individual houses. The room was very well furnished with all the necessities (portable fan, bathroom, hot shower). The room is very cute with an amazing view of the bush. I could... More

The highlight of our trip to South Africa was definitely the three days we spent at nThambo Tree Camp. The accommodations were exactly as represented on their website - beautiful rooms, the most delicious food, great wildlife (both game and birds) and especially the wonderful, knowledgable, generous staff. Kelly, Chad, Kevin and Isaac made our stay memorable and all too... More

Nthambo is such a special special place. The staff are not staff they're friends. The accommodation is truly out of this world and the game viewing is spectacular. Can't wait to go back again and again and again.

What a trip, big 5 plus African wild cat inside 3 days! The staff, Kelly, Chad and Kevin made our stay, what great hosts. The rooms were exactly on the money for a bush lodge with great beds and spectacular views. This is one of Africa's special places. We will be back!

I had a wonderful 2 night mid week stay at nThambo Tree Camp as part of a press trip. This was my 1st real bush experience and I found it to be unfussy and with unexpected touches of luxury. Chad & Kelly run the place as if it's their home so expect to be very, very comfortable. It's an intimate... More

I just finished a memorable 3 night stay at nThambo. I'm a solo traveler and chose this based on reviews and the help of a lady Jacqui from lodge trackers. What an amazing place and what wonderful staff! I was a bit nervous to be staying at a small camp by myself. However, I'm never one to let that show... More

I spent 3 nights in the tree house styled suite, and the experience is a bless. You feel like in a reduce sized Four seasons resort hotel, while enjoying wild life environment and great service. This camp has only 5 tree house styled suite, and accomodate up to 10 guest, perfect size for a private resort experience. Chad, Kelly, Calng... More

nTHAMBO is the luxury sister camp to Africa On Foot. I spent equal time in each, and loved both! Neither camp charges a single supplement. Accoms here are tree-house-style raised bungalows, all separate from one another, with wide-open views out to the bush. Great bed, linens, shower and toiletries, with all the trimmings of a hotel room (no flat-screen TV... More
