Our first time to Kruger and Nkambeni was just outside the Numbi Gate. Our tented accommodation was comfortable and clean, food was good and plentiful, and the staff were friendly and helpful. We got to see the big five on our game drives which was a bonus. The whole experience was very enjoyable. Thank you!

Nkambeni was situated right next to the Numbi Gate entrance to Kruger. The tented camps were rustic and gave a great lodge/safari experience. The rooms come with a heater/air conditioner and an indoor shower as well as two outdoor showers, that all have hot water. In the winter, the bathroom gets cold as there is a screen that looks outside.... More

Kruger is majestic and Numbi is a good place to stay right in the edge of the park. The lodge has tented rooms, really comfortable and clean as a whistle. A tented room basically means canvas exterior walls but solid internal ones. Excellent buffet breakfast and dinner either in the restaurant or outside overlooking the water. The restaurant staff were... More

The tented accommodation was pleasantly comfortable equipped with air-conditioning and heating. Bed came with mosquito netting although we did not encounter a single mosquito through our three day stay. The wonderful surprise was the double outdoor shower. Simply lovely to shower under the stars! I could make the camp my home....

What a great stay! We had a group of 9 who spent a few days in Kruger after a week in Lesotho. The staff at Nkambeni was great to work with leading up to our visit. They answered questions promptly, provided great info and were very understanding. The staff at the safari camp was also fantastic. When we checked in... More

Nice location-poor upkeep-No heat at 40 degrees-11 of our groups cabins were broke-we froze. Dining was outdoors and cold as well. Workers were hospitable and helpful but could not get us heat. Trip to park was well done.

Love their tent accommodation , expected to rough it out in the park but we had heat and hot water readily available, good buffet breakfast, helpful staff and great sorroundings. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Wifi is available at the lodge only.

This was glamor camping at its finest. Nice breakfast and dinner spreads, lovely lodge, but very disappointing WiFi service. I was here on a Grand Circle tour, and their Foundation helps support the nearby village we visited which is on the same land. We had two great days of game drives, where I saw the Big Five both days. The... More

We did the Golden Oldie 3 day, 2 night safari with Nhongo Safaris. It was a really good experience. The highlight was the walking safari on the last morning though. Going in a jeep is good but the guide can, at times, sound like she is regurgitating info from an encyclopedia. The walking safari with Chris and (sorry can't remember... More

To me camping conjures up a picture of Eureka tents, thermarests, sleeping bags, bush toilets and very cold showers. This was not our experience. The tents were truly luxury -- big double beds, real sheets, misquito needs, hot showers. They were more like rustic cabins. The lodge was well appointed. The food was good. There was a pool and a...
