After Africa on Foot this was an great end to one of my best bush experiences to date! This camp was intimate, peaceful and beautifully appointed. Rooms lofted in the trees with views across the bushveld you will be mesmerised by the sheer serenity! Again the professional and knowledgeable guides made it that much better. Thanks Matt and Isaac (the... More

this beautiful experience goes beyond the first class camping accommodation it's all about the interaction with the bush and the animals you see on the two safari drives a day. The amazing knowledge of the bush shared by guide/drivers Matt & Luan gave me such an understanding and appreciation of the area, I long to return again and again. There... More

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

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.
