The camp is very peaceful and the fixed tents allow you to hear the most amazing animal and bird sounds! The ablution and kitchen facilities are very clean and it was a pleasure using them. The tents are in a very good condition and the camp is well maintained. The staff in the camp were a very friendly and helpful.
We would surely recommend this for anyone that would like to experience camping in the KNP without the hassle of taking all your camping gear along.
Tamboti is also situated perfectly for spotting the big five and we had the pleasure of accomplishing this twice during our 4-day stay.
We would surely return to Tamboti and hopefully it will be in the near future.

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
