We spent 3 nights in the more upmarket (meaning you have your own bathroom and cooking facilities) tents. Stunning location. Very peaceful. Have previously stayed in the tents which share ablutions - and enjoyed that too! Was rather cold - to be expected in June! Will definitely be returning... Pay careful heed to the warning about monkeys - they stole my tea bags, in a flash.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tamboti tented camp is a small camp situated on the banks of the Timbavati River, on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park, approximately 2km east of Orpen Rest Camp. Due to the size and location of this camp, Tamboti is one of the most popular camps in the Park. A great feature is a boma, which makes it ideal for small groups of people to gather around the campfire and relive the animal sightings of the day. For the birding enthusiasts, Tamboti offers a bird hide in which to spend hours looking for that exclusive raptor that has up to now eluded you. The natural bush feeling is kept inside the camp, which has the result of emphasizing guest privacy. ... more less
