nThambo Tree Camp is an eco-friendly camp that provides a truly personal safari experience. The camp has five chalets that sleep two people, creating an intimate and private ambience. There is an outdoor lounge and dining area covered by a thatch which affords guests beautiful views of the plains and a small waterhole in front of camp that attracts many animals. There is also a boma area with camp fire, perfect for warming you up with your coffee before the morning walk, or for enjoying evening drinks around the fire. In addition, guests will experience a traditional South African braaivleis cooked over an open fire. nThambo Tree Camp is located in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, which shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, in turn enhancing the overall wildlife experience.
nThambo Tree Camp has five solar-powered “treehouse” chalets that sleep two guests each. The camp can therefore accommodate a maximum of ten guests, ensuring a personal and private safari experience. The chalets rest on raised wooden stilts, the floor is wooden, the walls are made of highly durable canvas, and the roof is thatched, thereby creating one of the most unique and authentic safari accommodations in the Kruger. In addition, each chalet has a verandah which overlooks the plain in front of camp with views of the impressive Drakensberg mountain range in the distance.
The dining room has a large table where, as per safari tradition, everyone dines together to enjoy each other’s company and share stories of the day’s game sightings. In addition guests will experience a traditional South African braaivleis cooked over the open fire.
A safari at nThambo Tree Camp includes guided game drives through a wildlife area rich in game and part of the huge wilderness area that is the Greater Kruger. In addition to morning and afternoon/evening game drives, bushwalks are offered after breakfast.
