Just stayed four nights here with my family and didn't want to leave. The treehouses are great and beautifully furnished. The main building is lovely and all the staff make you feel like friends rather than guests. We had Bjorn as our driver/guide and his sense of humour and deep knowledge made the game drives great fun. Our tracker, Isaak,... More

Beautiful , more than we expected. Never thougt to get that close to the animals. The tracker and guide were super in finding animals. We have seen 'the big five' an elephant was drinking out the pool. Very glad we have been in ntambo tree camp.

Incredible guiding in a beautiful location. Felt that the guide and tracker were respectful of animals, and yet successful in finding so many incredible animals to see. The highlights- daily walks, wild dog puppies,leopards + cubs, elephants drinking from the pool as we sat on the terrace. It was incredible.

What a fantastic place to experience wildlife in their natural environment. Couldn't have wished for better place to stay in the area and celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. All the team were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Food was great and was thrilled with what we could see on the game drives. Really enjoyed the bush walk with Isaac, What an... More

Beautiful setting in small tended tree houses, beautiful main area with a small pool. IF you are lucky some elephants will join for a drink :) Tracker and guide very helpful and always trying to give their guests the ultimate safari experience. From my opinion very good location for up to 3 nights- especially for safari and africa-beginners/newbies. Also for... More

This place was wonderful- it combined a rustic feel with all of the comforts of home- plus amazing meals and very friendly staff. Small, intimate setting. The safari staff very knowledgeable. This was my first trip to South Africa and I would definitely stay at nThambo if I get the opportunity to return.

nThambo in Zulu should mean home (for the record it doesn't) because from the moment you arrive up until the friendly waving staff disappear in your rear vision mirror, you really do feel like you are home. Nadia welcomed us with a refreshing cocktail and an even more refreshingly relaxed yet informative camp briefing. Before we knew it we had... More
