This is an ideal oasis where one can relax and unwind after hours of fighting N2 traffic. It is well positioned at the turn-off from the N2 to the Swaziland border post at Golela, allowing one an easy crossing early the next morning. The welcome was warm and genuine, the room and en suite bathroom were clean and comfortable and... More

Tamboti war the perfect stopover on our way from Lower Sabie to Hluhluwe. Brian was a very friendly host, the breakfast well organized. The view from our room into the valley was sensational. Great value for a reasonable price.

Conveniently located for our entrance to Swaziland. Lovely views across the Pongola River and good value for money. Great breakfast and very helpful hostess. Room was very clean and bed very comfortable. Bathroom dated and needs refurbishing to improve the rating further. Overall 8.5 score

Overall the B&B rooms are kept to a high standard. The Kitchen staff should be able to serve the following without the guests asking (e.g coffee, warm milk etc). Would definitely come back in future..

A very enjoyable stay. We enjoyed our dinner that evening at the Shayamoya Lodge too although I was divebombed by a white owl on leaving. Still, it's given us something to tell our friends and family back home! A very convenient place to stop on our way to Maputaland from Pretoria.

The B&B is somewhat of the road situated at a nice spot with a beautiful view over the river. The rooms are clean, but the interior is somewhat outdated and the bathroom looks spotty because of its age, but is clean nonetheless. There ia a niece common room with ample room to relax. Breakfast is fine. Dinner can be a... More

Dear Guest Many thanks for your review, glad you loved the views. We are a farm style Bed and Breakfast so modern is not our theme, rather the Bush and a hint of antique is our thing. Dinner is not an option only when Shayamoya have a braai planned @ R200 p/p for a full spread, alternatively they have an... More

Very peaceful and quiet setting. The rooms are large, but could use some some renovation. There is a great view and nice pool. Breakfast is fine! We had a great dinner at nearby Shayamoya Lodge. The lodge is located quite far from Pongola, but we used it as a convenient stopover to Sodwana Bay

Dear Guest Many thanks for your review, yes we are 27km from Pongola, drive time about 20 minutes, and our guests are those more keen on the peace and quiet of the bush. Tamboti is an authentic wholesome and friendly farm experience with homegrown vegetables and fruit used at breakfast and at the Shayamoya dinner. We are glad you enjoyed... More

Dear Bernie Many thanks, we are glad you enjoyed our piece of peace and quiet in the Bush. Tamboti Ridge B&B is ideally positioned at the Golela (Swaziland border) and N2 junction, just 10km to the border and 1 km of dirt road. We look forward to your next visit. Regards Lindy More
