          Spent 2 nights here with check in at Orpen Camp and stayed in a luxury tent with ablutions. You're in the bush in a satellite camp, which we were looking really forward too. There's no reception area and the camp was quite empty when we...More

          Have now stayed twice at Tamboti and loved the experience both times. Tents are basic but clean (we booked three 2-bed tents which were brand new, and one 3-bed luxury tent). Sit on tent deck and enjoy visits from small mammals, like genets and monkeys,...More

          One of the best bush experiences. The visits from the honey badgers were my highlight. The simplicity of the camp. The night sounds. A wonderful experience - booked again for September 2016. If you love the bush book and enjoy.

          Much is made of camping in the bush. You hear sounds better, you feel more excited because you are less protected, tents in the African bush place the rush of city and job further away than if you were behind walls. Tamboti satellite camp gives...More

          We've booked a few days at Tamboti Camp at one of the standard tends (not the ones with private ablutions, which I sadly didn't know about beforehand) and are looking forward to being in the bush. I'm just not sure what all to bring in terms of cooking equipment and crockery. Is there anything there, or do we need to bring it all with us (pots, pans, glasses, cutlery, crockery, etc.)? Also, do we need to bring our own bedding and / or towels? In the pics it looks like those are supplied, but I'd like to make sure! Thanks - all advice appreciated.
