Really enjoyed nThambo. Super relaxing place, the un-fenced location means you can't wander far from the camp which forces you to just take it easy by the pool, or have a mid day nap or read a book and generally just slow down and relax, which is exactly what we were after. We saw all the wildlife we were hoping... More

I was blown away by nThambo Tree Camp and staff. Luan Oosthuizen was a superb host and raconteur. Our ranger Matt Roberts' knowledge and passion about wildlife was inspiring. Isaack Nkuna, our tracker was also fantastic, finding an enormous lion in a thick tangle of bush. With Matt and Isaack, we got up close and personal with elephants, buffalo herds,... More

Nthambo is a fantastic place! We had such an amazing trip we can't wait to go back. Luan & Isaac were so knowledgeable and taught us so much as this was our first safari. The "tree" houses are so special and it was very cool to feel like we were in the wild (without actually sleeping outside). The views from... More

What a wonderful experience. We spent 4 nights in Jan 2015 at nThambo exploring the Klaserie Game Reserve. We were greated warmly by our hosts, Lily, our guides, Matt and Luan and our tracker, Isaac. Our 2 game drives a day were superb. We saw numerous animals including all the big 5, however, just in the nick of time. We... More

Saw the big 5 in one day! Isaac & Luan our guides/trackers were the ultimate host! What made this experience in the bush so perfect was how welcomed they made you feel. Throughout this fabulous adventure we were able to not only have a morning & evening safari, but a midday walking safari! Isaac & Luan know there stuff! The... More

This was the 'Grand Finale' after our wonderful stay at Africa on Foot. The rooms are lofts built above the bushveld. Watch the giraffes from your decks as the sun rises and sit around the dinner table until after sunset to share your game drive experiences. nThambo is a small private camp in the Kruger Park and offers a personal...

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
