I booked accomodation at Nkambeni Tented Safari camp for the evening of 4 and 5 May 2013. On our arrival we realised that this camp is definately NOT SITUATED INSIDE THE KNP as advertised, they are false advertising and the poor foreign tourist staying there as guests does not know that they are being deceived.
The parking area is situated roughly 800m from the accomodation, and you are required to carry all your luggage to your tent, this is not acceptable.
On our arrival at the tent we were really shocked at the standard of this tent, the bedding (duvet & pillows )and towls are worn and old.
The wood on the flooring and walls are worn/ damaged and is in desperate need of some tlc and varnish.
The aircon in our tent is not working on either the hot and cold setting. Yhis poses a real concern as the days are very hot and during the winter months it gets extremily cold at night.
On Satuday night it started to rain slightly and the tent was leaking on our bed, not a good experience.
Moving on to Dinner and Breakfast, they are charging guests R130.00 per person for their evening dinner, which consists of cold and surely old food that they re-use each night. This is truely exploitation for both South African residence and foreign visitors.
I can truely carry on with the complaints, but I appeal to everyone reading this and considering staying here to re -consider, as the accomodation inside the Kruger (SAN parks) is of a much higher standard.
