We spent 4 days at nThambo and can highly recommend it. The stilted houses were ideal and giving a good view over the surrounding bush were animals could be seen regularly. The safari experience was excellent with knowledgable trackers, Isaack and Kyle who regularly brought us up close and personal with a variety of animals including the "big five". As...

Everything was nice. Beautiful environment and treehouse. The activities in the morning and afternoon are nicely combined with relaxation. Nice meals together with other guests. Once you are in the reserve follow the signs, not your GPS! :)

I strongly recommend nThambo. The staff are so nice and friendly and attentive. The trackers are the best in the area from what i could see and without having fences around it, you really feel like you are getting the most authentic safari experience. I lay awake all night listening to the lions and Hyenas roaring in the near distance...

Fantastic location. Over all stay good nice to listen to the wild animals at night and look out over the decking and seeing wild animal. Very interesting information about the animals given by ranger. And the tracker was brilliant to! Very friendly staff always there to answer questions. Shame about the departure.

My stay at nThambo was hands down the best vacation experience I have ever had. From the family style dinners with the other guests to the game drives with the experienced trackers/rangers, everything was perfectly organized. The rooms, food, and staff are all amazing. I can't wait to come back.

Our three days stay in January 2017 at the nThambo Tree Camp was a very pleasant stop over. All the Staff were extremely helpful. Ryan and Isaak gave us a lot of information to take away with us about the bush animals we saw during the safaris.

This was our first safari ever, and we have really enjoyed our days at nThambo Tree Camp. The fact that the rooms on poles are in the middle of the bush really added to a sense of adventure. Even though you are in the middle of nature, the camp has a luxurious feel. Very nicely decorated rooms, good linen, great...

Very happy we have chosen nThambo Tree Camp for our first safari. The rangers have a lot of experience and are easy going. The food is also good, just like whole SA. Our highlight was when one of the rangers woke us up at 01.00 AM because the lions had caught a buffalo. Very impressive. The only bummer was that...
