We ended our honeymoon with 3 days at nThambo and we loved it. It's very homey and the small staff makes it very quaint. They prepared a special private dinner under the stars with champagne for us for our honeymoon. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable. We learned a lot from our guides there that we didn't get from the...

We loved our stay in Nthambo and highly recommend it to others who are looking for a smaller lodge with great personal service, casual attitude but with luxury service, and amazing wildlife. The rooms (individual treehouses) were great (the hot water bottles were a perfect surprise when we got into bed) with super comfortable beds with an intimate feel with...

Best trip I've ever taken!!! The staff at Nthambo was awesome! Lodging was incredible and unique! Completely surrounded by the bush without any fencing was a great experience. I'm definitely coming back!

Wonderful rooms, like a tent on stilts! Rustic luxury and close to nature! The most comfortable bed, and the hot water bottle at night was much appreciated :-) The staff were welcoming and friendly. Game viewing was fantastic. We had elephants around our room on our first night! I don't want to launch into a huge review and describe every...

This was our first safari experience, and immediately on arrival, we felt part of the family. From the home style meals to the cozy fire, we had a lovely time. Our tent was comfortable, and the hot water bottles contributed to a comfortable sleep. Our guide was very enthusiastic and our tracker took time to educate us on a variety...

We will never forget our stay in the nTambo Tree Camp. After four days it was a pity to leave the camp. Next to the several wild animals we saw during the came drive, the location was wonderful. We had our own lodge, which was very clean with good beds, so the sleep quality was excellent. The quality of breakfast,...

If I could give this Nthambo a rating of 100 I would! Very charming and excellent service. Kudos to everyone at the lodge who made our stay special including Nadia, Steph, Ryan, Isaac and the rest of the staff. Game viewing was superb, grounds and accommodation were lovely and food was excellent! I would highly recommend this lodge and hope...

I don't even know how to describe how good this place was. I am so happy we chose to stay here. The tents/cabins are safe and luxurious, but because there are no fences you might get some game under you (we had buffalo and hyenas around the camp when we were there). The staff are amazing at making sure you...

it was now my 6th time returning to this intimate camp in just over 3 years and have already a confirmed booking for another 3 times. It is hard to describe why I like the camp and guess it is just the overall experience and a combination of everything that makes this camp so different from others. During my trip...
