We had a really great time here. Everything was great: food, drinks, safari. The staff were what made it especially awesome. We also stayed at another "luxury" camp and we liked nThambo so much better! Some things to know: -The accommodation is open air, so definitely bring bug spray and use the mosquito net. -No AC -Wake up call at...

Super quiet environment, an oasis of rest and pure nature. Though most of the staff are young, they have a lot of experience and knowledge. Very good quality for a honest price. I wish I could come back next week !

We stayed her June 2014. Loved this place. Guides are amazing. The property is attached to Kruger with no gate so all the animals in Kruger come/go from here, but there's no restriction on going off-road. We had morning and afternoon drives and one WALK. Couldn't believe you could walk in the wild and be safe. We came across a...

We started our tour at nThambo and it was the absolute highlight of our whole trip. (We did the garden route afterwards) Nadia , Luan, Isaac and the rest of the crew are simply amazing! After only one day we already felt like at home. The atmosphere at nThambo is excellent. Every morning and evening we went on drives which...

We enjoyed evry minute in this camp: Chatting with the staff, the owner and the other guests, relaxing at the pool, enjoying the tastful meals, using the safari breaks by reading of interesting available broschures and especially the single safaris with our guide Loan. He had always an open ear for all our questions and he explained very understandable and...

The staff from manager to guides were great! The food was delicious, plentiful and appealing. The surprising and biggest disappointment was that they did not serve at least a game dinner. The accommodations were comfortable and more than adequate. I enjoyed the tree house/hut theme. We saw the Big 5 and then some. They were not in large herds but...
