Our experience was amazing : nice people, fantastics safaris, very good location, lot of sun, ... One of the best moment of the trip was the bushwalk with Isaak. The only negative point is the constant noise of the generator.

Hi Adrien

Thanks for your review! We're glad you enjoyed the bushwalk; an option we offer guests if they want to pre-arrange a walk. We apologise for the noise of the generator - our camp is eco-friendly and the generator does kick-in when there has been lack of sun. The generator should not run constantly, so we have taken this up with management.

Regards
The nThambo Tree Camp Team

I am so glad I have chosen this camp to spend my 50th birthday, it was absolutely amazing. Very private and intimate with only 5 tree huts. Nadia is a perfect camp manager. Our tracker Isaack and ranger JD were very knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around with. They all worked very well together and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The tree huts are beautiful and clean and the beds very comfortable. The food is prepared by lovely ladies and they did a brilliant job. They even had candles on the afternoon cake on my birthday and sang in 3 languages :-) Not fenced in, we were 'walked home' every night by Isaack or JD which gives you a real bush feeling. It was a very memorable experience and we hope to be back in future.

Hi Kitty !

We're glad you selected our camp to celebrate your 50th birthday. Our five chalets keeps things small and simple - we prefer the personalised service we can offer people. Being an open camp means

JD is most certainly an old school safari legend and his knowledge of the bushveld is unsurpassed. Isaak is equally as knowledgeable - we're glad you enjoyed their company!

We're glad you got to experience a traditional African birthday experience !

Warm Regards
The nThambo Tree Camp Team

Stayed 4 nights at this truly amazing camp in the South African bush, within the Kruger National Park. From beginning to end this was a memorable experience. A heartfelt thanks to Nadia who keeps the whole camp running smoothly. Ryan the guide & Isaack the tracker ( both truly remarkable) their knowledge & experience second to none. We saw the big 5 & much more. The staff of the camp are lovely, great food & nice clean rooms... I couldn't fault anything.... thank you for making my long awaited safari amazing xx

Myself and my partner stayed here for 5 nights. We had such an amazing time- we honestly couldn't fault it! The lodges are very beautifully decorated- it's the perfect mix of rustic safari experience whilst still having all your home comforts but doesn't look like a luxury hotel resort. Staff were excellent. Nadia was very welcoming and helpful whilst we were at the lodge. We had Ryan and JD taking us out on the drives and they were excellent. Found us some amazing animal encounters and had some very entertaining stories. Food was very good and great selection of drinks to choose too. Absolutely loved the whole experience!

Hi There

Thanks so much for your positive review ! We're glad you enjoyed the tranquility and atmosphere at our lodge. Our decor and lodge structure is such that it doesn't detract too much from the natural surrounds. We aim to look like an extension of the surrounding environment, not an intrusion.

We're glad you enjoyed your time with Ryan and JD; and that Nadia ensured your stay was perfect.

Warm Regards
