We booked our 2 nights through Jenman Safaris (June 4-6). There were a total of 10 guests, their limit. We were worried about the walks and open drives. We even worried about having the right clothing....all for naught. They explain a lot during orientation, when you first arrive. On the walk, we had 2 guides with rifles. They even explained... More

I stayed in a treehouse for 3 days at nThambo. The accommodation is great, you have a spacious room with bathroom. The camp has a wonderful view. The staff is really friendly and provides you with everything you need. The gamedrives are nice as well, the guides are enthusiastic and know a lot about the area.

This certainly is the most special place in the world. We travel to South Africa 3 times year, and we always try to spend about 6 nights each time, here at nThambo. It's a real safari experience, with enough, but not too much luxury. - Thats what makes it so special. The accommodation is tented tree houses, beautifully decorated, with... More

I had the opportunity to come to South Africa as part of a work trip so I booked some time off to see Kruger. After searching on here for awhile I came across Wild Wings Safari who offered nThambo as one of their options. At first I was a little worried but once I got there, all of that was... More

This is a very special lodge - everything you desire from an authentic bush experience without the bells and whistles of some other lodges. The food is simple but delicious, the accommdation very comfortable. The game viewing is extraordinary (5 leopards in one weekend!) and Chad shares facinating stories about the bush. Staff, in particular Kelly and Kevin, were very... More

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!
