Everything was just perfect all along the 3 nights we spent at nThambo Tree camp. The quality of accommodation (pretty and convenient rooms, sun-deck and Wifi in the common area), the home-made food simple but delicious and the staff nice and competent. The place is in the middle of nowhere and we had the chance to approach the big five and many more thanks to our excellent ranger! I can't wait to come back at nThambo Tree Camp, our stay was definitely too short.

Fantastic in every way can't wait to go back!

Everyone at nThambo was amazing. I don't have a single complaint. In fact this was the highlight of our 3 week trip in Africa. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the food was delicious, fresh, and healthy, and the staff were friendly, helpful and made everyone feel at home

Exotic AND eco-friendly!

We had a delightful stay here and cannot sing enough praises for the managers. Our reservations had been messed up by an agency but everything was settled very graciously and we were made to feel welcome. The animal sighting safaris were tremendous and we benefitted a lot from the knowledgeable guide and tracker. The treehouse accommodations are charming and felt very luxurious. The meals and snacks were great and we enjoyed the camaraderie with other guests. We also were glad to learn that much care is taken to make the ecological footprints here miniscule.
