    We enjoyed our stay in one of the tented camps with our 2 children aged 11 and 12 and our game ranger guide Etienne. Facilities are simple but spotlessly clean and we ate under beautiful skies, enjoying good game during the day. Definitely going back.

    We had a lovely stay here. The permanent, raised platform luxury tents are spacious and well equipped. Great for self catering, with all utensils and equipment needed. Nothing terribly fancy, and limited service, but great as a fun base for a Kruger trip. Lovely and...More

    We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay here. We had the first completed, upgraded luxury tent which is on the corner of the property with stunning views over the Timbavati riverbed. The patio/deck has a table which seats 3, the kitchen is up on the...More

    This tented camp is set along the banks of the Timbavati riverbed, and has a very authentic "bush" feel compared to many of the more built-up camps in Kruger. If you're lucky (and stay up late enough), you may just get a glimpse of the...More

    Tamboti Camp is fine, we stayed here only once on our first trip. We shared a Safari tent which slept 4 of us. Good Value...was clean, the communal bathrooms were clean, and the location is nice for Braai as your beside the riverbed. They do...More

    We've booked a few days at Tamboti Camp at one of the standard tends (not the ones with private ablutions, which I sadly didn't know about beforehand) and are looking forward to being in the bush. I'm just not sure what all to bring in terms of cooking equipment and crockery. Is there anything there, or do we need to bring it all with us (pots, pans, glasses, cutlery, crockery, etc.)? Also, do we need to bring our own bedding and / or towels? In the pics it looks like those are supplied, but I'd like to make sure! Thanks - all advice appreciated.

    Hi Tamara O - you can upgrade to a tent with a bathroom, utensils if there are any available. You need to call, or email reservations. See the SANParks website for details. You need to bring all your own utensils... More
